Elsbeth Böniger is a passionate collector, gathering diverse materials from which she draws her inspiration and new ideas. The surfaces of her works play a central role in Böniger’s oeuvre. The surrounding reflecting mirror finish fascinates as well as the undefined consistency of the multiple applied layers of paint. The works oscillate from totally planned perfection to fortuitous results. All the works share a strong tactile element. The viewer has the urge to feel and touch the works. The structures emerge from the chosen material like nets, varnish, rubber or bitumen and are woven into a whole of format and technique. The artist is a tinkerer, building imaginary and real spaces and, as an architect, organizing fragments into an artistic whole.
Her alchemical painting is an endless series, with new images always appearing when you look at them. It is like an invisible marvelous underwater, in the sea, with ever new islands, which are made of craters.
Her sculptures are imagined, impressionistic works, found in the reef of painting. One is the other, like a course in her private archive.

With his impressive photographs evoking landscapes or architecture of an intoxicating beauty, Christian Indermühle immortalizes nature and culture coexisting equally alongside each other. All these images introduce a new aesthetic language into his works. He keeps visiting mysterious places in order to capture their atmospheric lighting effects. The pictures turn into archetypes as it were, into colossal and timeless documents of the world, attesting to the artist‘s interest in the varied forms of becoming and passing away. The calibration between photography and architecture is fascinating staged in his pictures. Night photographs from the Alps, jungle shots, industrial photographs and detached mountain-scapes and seascapes were to be seen so far. In recent times, Indermühle has increasingly dealt with still lifes.

For the first time, Elsbeth Böniger and Christian Indermühle are not only exhibiting together, but have also created joint works. The arranged still lifes are compositions of the couple's memorabilia, memories and collector's material. These are photographed as travel logs by Christian Indermühle and the background are painted pictures by Elsbeth Böniger.
