Drawing Boundaries

Baltensperger + Siepert, 2012

Drawing Boundaries was on display at the Shanghai Biennale 2012/13 as a collaboration with chinese artist Shi Qing.

 

For their project Drawing Boundaries Baltensperger + Siepert produced various national flags. Instead of reproducing the flags one-to-one they eliminated all colours and replaced them with a simple unifying red / white. The artists see national flags as a questionable symbol that unites and divides at the same time, a display of cultural and territorial boundaries.

Baltensperger and Siepert are very interested in symbols of national and cultural identity in postcolonial times. With their works they investigate fragments of these symbols and examine their function by letting them unfold in different contexts.

The work was on display at the Shanghai Biennale 2012 / 13 as a collaboration with Chinese artist Shi Qing.

Für Drawing Boundries liessen Baltensperger + Siepert unterschiedliche Nationalflaggen produzieren. Die farbigen Flächen wurden dabei durch eine Einheitsfarbe ersetzt. Durch das Weglassen der Farbe verliert das Objekt seine Autorität als identitätsstiftendes Symbol. Die Arbeit spielt mit den Emotionen der Ausstellungsbesucher die zwischen Wiedererkennung, Selbstverortung und Entfremdung zirkulieren.

Während eines Studienaufenthaltes in Shanghai und in Vorbereitung einer Kollaboration mit dem chinesischen Künstler Shi Qing, liessen Baltensperger + Siepert in einer Schneiderei in Shanghai Flaggen im kaiserlichen Rot herstellen. Der Fokus lag hierbei auf der Übersetzbarkeit des Konzeptes in eine andere Kultur.
