Annina Matter / Urs Zahn – rite cum laude
Weiss Falk, Basel
26.2–2.4.2016

Some remarks on the exhibition:

  1. we go one by one in order for now.

  2. only the simplest means are simple enough to capture what’s new in a way that’s perfectly clear.

  3. we have obviously disregarded colors this time around.

  4. the painter is the only one entitled to say it’s hard to paint something new.

  5. rite cum laude can surpass itself.

  6. the form towers above the idea.

  7. the list is miles ahead of the narrative.

  8. rite cum laude is hyperbolic:

  9. we name without knowing, and shape without knowing how.

  10. our courage deserts us as always at the appointed place. by ten it has been counted up, not paid off, briefly glanced at, swiftly pictured: a tentative result drawn up by a child’s hand. – the little fingers, one by one, are all already extended. given the count nicely, and everything equalized ten times over: always the same sample beat. – eleven’s already an abstract thought. Eleven already made ten so small.

  11. rite cum laude is a hands-on exhibition.
