‘BABIES ARE BORN AT NIGHT’ continues Auer’s fascination for post- industrial aesthetics, which stem from the late eighties and the changing environment of corporate culture. Using material and objects closely associated with consumer desire, aspiration and lifestyle Auer’s practice oscillates between the computer screen, and the materiality of hand crafted matter to drive his methods. Choosing the paraphernalia of the trading floors and urban loft living, which have become iconized by the global markets, Auer reshapes a new scenario to present the ‘bursting bubble’ that continuously drives these forces.
In a text written by Maximilian Biswanger to accompany the exhibition the writer departs from a direct interpretation of the work to explore ideas which surround his continuing exploration of Auer’s practice and his ongoing and close dialogue with the artist.
The exhibition will coincide with a solo representation by Kraupa Tuskany-Zeidler at LISTE 18, Basel, later in June this year.
