In spite of the fact that KARIM NOURELDIN is a Swiss artist, his work was a total and enthusiastic discovery this afternoon at Von Bartha Garage in Basel.

KARIM NOURELDIN is best known for his site-specific installations and wall drawings. He began around 1991 by drawing meticulously colourful geometrical abstractions that opened new spatial dimensions. Since then he added interventions in the field of sculptures, photos, wall- and floor paintings and large in-situ installations. He also collaborated on several artistic projects with a younger generation of Swiss architects.

This time at Von Bartha, he is displaying a cycle of drawings created in the past three years. The planned concept of the exhibition is to hang drawings in a free disposition along the outside walls of the gallery in order to create a sequence. Echoing to these drawings, the installation in the middle of the hall consists of grey-painted partition screens which have been conceived by KARIM NOURELDIN. The installation is furnished with works of other artist NOURELDIN chose from the Von Bartha Collection and with designer pieces. All these objects and works reflect not only the dynamic-constructive language of KARIM NOURELDIN but they are also a source of inspiration for him.

KARIM NOURELDIN lives and works in Lausanne. He studied at the University of Art and Design Zurich/Zürcher Hochschule der Künste ZHdK and graduated 1993 in Fine Arts at the University of Art and Design Basel/Hochschule für Gestaltung und Kunst HGK. Since 2002 he is a professor at ECAL/University of Art and Design in Lausanne.

And good news: the exhibition “KARIM NOURELDIN, Integrale” is on view at Von Bartha Garage, Basel (Switzerland) until May 14, 2011
