Coinciding with Art Basel 2019, von Bartha Basel announces an exhibition of new works by Swiss artist Karim Noureldin. Running from 11 June – 27 July 2019, the exhibition presents new large-scale drawings, three new textile pieces as well as previously unseen works on paper from the artist’s archive, dating from 1992 – 2015. Marking Noureldin’s fourth solo show at von Bartha, the exhibition demonstrates the development of his signature abstract style across different mediums.

Displaying a fundamental interest in drawing, Noureldin’s work negotiates the intuitive and spatial aspect of this medium to produce the non-figurative, geometric crossings present in his large-scale drawings. Titled Equinox, this series of works lend their name to the exhibition, acting as an entry point to three new, large-scale textile works, handwoven in the increasingly rare ‘Panza technique’ from western India. As an ongoing and on-site collaboration between master weavers and the artist himself, this traditional craft-making process results in unique, floor-based artworks.

A large site-specific installation completes the exhibition. A 2m x 30m wooden mount spans from the entrance area to the main back wall of the gallery, serving as both artwork and platform for small-scale works on paper created between 1992-2015. These unseen archive pieces demonstrate Noureldin’s artistic trajectory, whilst working in a mutual dialogue with his practice and imagery today.
