Christoph Rütimann’s artistic approach to the world including drawing, painting, sculpture, photography and video and performance constitutes a performative measuring of that world. Colour becomes his counterpart, and his tracking shots travel through it along lines that are to be found everywhere. Rütimann’s drawings are also line works that point beyond the edge of the paper and, as a theme passing from one medium to another, find their way into the world of the videos, where they even reflect on the concept of a contemporary painting as they appear on the screen. 

The exhibition highlights 30 years of Christoph Rütimann’s artistic praxis, which involves a transgression beyond media and spatial limits that can be immediately sensed by the viewer.
