Yves Netzhammer
Two Cool Dwarf Elephants Eat Peach-Flavored Empathy Surplus

curated by Sabine Schaschl and Evelyne Bucher

October 27, 2022 – January 15, 2023

Museum Haus Konstruktiv is exhibiting Yves Netzhammer (b. 1970 in Affoltern am Albis, lives and works in Zurich) – one of the highest-profile Swiss artists of his generation. For this solo exhibition, Netzhammer has developed an installation setting that precisely embeds itself in the existing architecture.

His works are based on computer animations, which he presents together with objects, drawings, 3D prints and murals, creating sophisticated multilayered environments. The resulting visual worlds are rooted in both figuration and abstraction: They contain anonymous figures with no face or gender, animals, insects and various items, as well as reduced formal elements that enable references to surrealism and constructivism. This artist is always concerned with moments of empathic perception, which his peculiar creatures’ actions trigger in the audience.
