Kunsthaus Baselland

Maude Léonard-Contant. Digs

Today: Closed

09 September 2022 - 13 November 2022

The title of the exhibition says it all: it is about digging something up, in a figurative sense; bringing something to light that until now has tended to lie hidden, beneath the surface, beneath the obvious. For many years, the Basel-based artist, who is originally from Francophone Canada, has been interested in spaces that make language possible, change it, or even close it off. At the same time, she reflects on the representability of language, its ability to name and its need to exclude, but also its changed meaning at the point that it is translated into another language and thus into another culture. Consequently, this exhibition of Maude Léonard-Contant’s works is not a conclusive statement, but rather a place of listening, invitation and transformation; a place that allows the materials to become part of the language—a succession of spaces and times, accompanied by the artist, who adopts a different stance with each visit to the exhibition—and actively includes the audience in the process.

Maude Léonard-Contant will be on site regularly during the exhibition to continue the work.

Curator: Ines Goldbach
