Gerardo Liranza Durán (*1987, Cuba)

Artist Statement:
Industries, factories, small businesses, have been hit by the Covid-19, hundreds, thousands in bankruptcy. I try to establish a relationship between these spaces that have been disappearing in time and those that, thanks to utopia, have been growing. I appeal above all to visual memory, it is where a gap is opened between reality and fiction, attracted by the idea of seeing the experimental changes of nature in isolated and abandoned places. I have begun to paint the landscape from the intimate place that expands us and offers us the best of perspectives, it is remembered and when remembering the moment is evoked, creating a landscape where the ideal stands out and merges with reality, the annihilated structures due to the Coronavirus and abandonment they assume a total resignification – in the manner of “a new landscape”.

Onay Rosquet (*1987, Havana)

Onay Rosquet (Havanna, *1987) takes inventory of our lives. He demonstrates: We can not give up our “attachments”, cannot live on bread alone. As insignificant as every object, every meaning appears, in their totality they show our life.

The exhibition ATTACHMENTS is his second solo exhibition in Zurich. The latest work presented is a continuation of his series of collection of objects shown in 2017. His seemingly random – yet carefully orchestrated – compilation of papers lets the audience immerse themselves in personal memories. By painting collections of paper, he conjures up almost forgotten associations in the viewer. Onay Rosquet wants us to pay attention to the things we usually do not notice.

“I’m fascinated by the social phenomenon of people’s dependency on documents – be it bills, legal documents or love letters,” says Rosquet. He shows how t
