Jonathan Binet (*1984 in Saint-Priest, F, lives and works in Paris) deconstructs elements of painting and architecture in his works. He experiments with parts of canvases and traces of paint, which he sets in relation to the exhibition space. In the process the impulses of the artist are clearly perceptible. They are calculated and spontaneous gestures with which he brings together stillness and movement and the material and the fleeting into a rhythm.
Sonia Kacem (*1985 in Geneva, CH, lives and works in Geneva) makes use of a kind of performative painting for the composition of spatial images. Her installations arise from intuitive reaction and conscious arrangement and generate pictorial allusions. At Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen Binet and Kacem confront visitors with the aesthetic potential of spatial and material interactions.
