David Zwirner is pleased to present This is where I travelled, a group exhibition at Tarmak22 in Gstaad, Switzerland
Situated in an exhibition space within a private airport complex, This is where I travelled considers the boundless creative possibilities that persist during a time when physical travel is restricted.
Drawing its title from a series of paintings by the Zimbabwean artist Portia Zvavahera that was on view at David Zwirner London in the fall of 2020, this exhibition focuses instead on the imagination as a conduit of travel, allowing us to visit places both real and fictional, and on how artists use creativity as a vehicle to move both themselves and viewers beyond our collective stationary and restricted position. The exhibition will feature work by a selection of artists from the gallery’s program, each bringing a distinct approach to this theme through a range of media and formats.
The exhibition will include works by Harold Ancart, Carol Bove, Marlene Dumas, Cy Gavin, Isa Genzken, Dan Flavin, Paul Klee, Juan Muñoz, Lisa Yuskavage, and Portia Zvavahera, among others.
“In these times when many of us are facing restrictions in our day-to-day lives, it is a pleasure to partner with Tarmak22 to present this exhibition in Gstaad, a town that has many connections within the contemporary art world. This exhibition allows us to present the work of our artists across international boundaries and in a place where we don’t have a brick-and-mortar space,” stated Rodolphe von Hofmannsthal, a senior director at David Zwirner’s London gallery.
