Jürg Stäuble’s ‘Mehr sein als System’ at Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Zurich



“Mehr sein als System,” a retrospective featuring the works of Swiss artist, sculptor, and illustrator Jürg Stäuble is on view at Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Zurich.The exhibition is a comprehensive look at the artistic career of Stäuble, spanning a period of 50 years in the context of minimalism, style, and conceptual art. Even though the artist’s creation that includes two-dimensional works and reliefs, sculptures, installations, and architectural interventions are drawn from geometric systems and design drawings; for Stäuble geometry is the starting point and the path but not the goal. His underlying design principles are rarely easy to decrypt. His works are based on geometric construction principles and are modified by intuitive manipulations in a variety of ways and models. Stäuble’s works are not abstractions but concretions of abstract models.Jürg Stäuble (b. 1948, Wohlen, Aargau) has held teaching positions as Head of the Sculptor’s Class, School of Design, Basel, (1988 – 2000), Lecturer at the Fachhochschule of both Basel HGK Dept. Fine Art Media Art (2000 – 2002), and Professor at the Institute Art of the College of Design and Art HGK FHNW (2002 – 2011). His works have been exhibited at Galerie Hoffmann, Friedberg, 2014, Galerie Mark Müller, Zürich, 2013, Kunstraum Riehen (2008), and Galerie Nicolas Krupp, Basel, 2007, among others. The artist has been the recipient of several awards such as BSA Prize 2015 (Federation of Swiss Architects), Studio stay Fonderie Darling Montréal CND, iaab, CMS Base, 2013, and Atelier stay in Berlin, Aargauer Kuratorium, 2005. Mehr sein als System” is on view from June 1 through September 3, 2017, at Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Selnaustrasse 25, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland.For details, visit: http://www.hauskonstruktiv.ch/Click on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the exhibition.
