The second of two pilot solo projects in Basel, Switzerland, at Rheingasse 17. Edwin Burdis's first Swiss presentation, with paintings from a new series of works 'POLYTUNNEL-BANGERZ' in which the artist samples existing artworks - including his own - in acrylic, gloss and spray paint on canvas. ‘Mark’s Horse’ and ‘My Sentinel’ hang together as ‘Delusions of Grandeur’; joking around an established value system and every artworks place within it.
Curator: Alys Williams.
