Eins/1/I – Kochstrasse, Zurich

Pop-up galleries form a vital part in London’s cultural scene. Young gallerists Yves Sinka and Oskar Weiss intended to make that happen in Zurich too. To this end, the duo has transformed a former printers‘ shop at Kochstrasse 1 in Zurich’s hip downtown neighbourhood Kreis 4 into a temporary art gallery. In the week-long pop-up exhibition, Sinka + Weiss present the five young and up-and-coming Swiss artists Rico Scagliola & Michael Meier, Play Hunter, Tina Braegger, Valentina Vujovic, and Nicolas Frey.

The art-duo Rico Scagliola & Michael Meyer whose first photo book ‚Neue Menschen‘, released this Spring at Edition Patrick Frey, is proving a success, break new ground for this exhibition: expect an DVD-installation.

Play Hunter enjoys a worldwide following with her photoblog Playlust resulting in the publication of the photo book ‚Now & Wow – A Style Hunter’s Book of Photographs‘ (Keller & Gerber Publishers) in 2010. She showcases a new photo series, originally shot on instant film. It catches glamour with scratch marks but no traces of nostalgia.
