Ugo Rondi­none adds a poetic dimen­sion to everyday objects and phenomena. In typi­cally mini­mal­istic arrange­ments, he puts a tree, a clock, the sun or a rainbow in new contexts by means of repe­ti­tion, isola­tion, or reduc­tion, creating atmos­pheric ambi­ences. The SCHIRN is dedi­cating a large survey exhi­bi­tion to Rondi­none that will show­case key paint­ings, sculp­tures, and video works by the renowned Swiss artist. Devised specif­i­cally for the SCHIRN, his new instal­la­tion extends along the entire length of the gallery and into the Rotunda.

The exhi­bi­tion LIFE TIME combines funda­mental themes that have shaped the work of the concep­tual and instal­la­tion artist for the past thirty years: time and tran­sience, day and night, reality and fiction, nature and culture. Rondi­none has repeat­edly referred to the iconog­raphy of Roman­ti­cism in his works and used quotes from liter­a­ture and pop culture. The starting point of his multi­media oeuvre is the trans­for­ma­tion of the outside world into a subjec­tive, emotional inner world. He develops expe­ri­en­tial spaces in which the viewer actu­ally becomes part of the instal­la­tions and their immer­sive struc­tures.
