“With best intentions we carry our grand ideas into the world.” Following this motto, Leopold Kessler, NEOZOON, Benja Sachau, Dana Sherwood, Roman Signer and Virg each, in their own unique way, put everyday life under the microscope. Weighted in video works, the show examines the innate beauty of human desire and the absurdity that comes from honest attempts at greatness. A strength of this exhibition is that no two pieces are in any way alike. A definite highlight is NEOZOON’s “Buck Fever”, a video that uses analytical grouping to put the pastime of deer hunting into awe-ful new perspectives.
