Karin Hueber

The group exhibition Beispiel Schweiz. Entgrenzungen und Passagen als Kunst (2011) took a comprehensive look at art production in Switzerland over the past decades and presented a selection of space-oriented works in an open thematic discourse. On display were installations, but also paintings, drawings and photographs by over 40 artists.
The contribution of the Swiss artist Karin Hueber resulted in an edition that was produced exclusively for Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein and is a small version of her large-format wall work made of paper.

Using origami techniques, the artist folded a house out of a large white paper, the volume of which was oriented towards the smallest habitable room. For the exhibition, Hueber unfolded the constructed space again and hung it on the wall as a flat object, leaving the resulting creases clearly visible in the paper. The present edition corresponds to this very form with an altered dimension of 49 × 49 cm.
"Line and surface to space" is how art historian and co-curator of the exhibition Roman Kurzmeyer describes what Hueber's installations show. The minimalist and conceptual tendencies of the 1960s and 1970s are unmistakably the impetus for her works.

Karin Hueber (* 1977 in Basel) lives and works in Zurich.
