Elodie Pong: “Paradise Paradoxe” at Zurich

Elodie Pong, video and installation artist from Zurich, investigates the invisible olfactory architecture that surrounds us as the point of departure for her solo exhibition at Helmhaus Zürich.

The exhibition was also used to publish a worth reading catalogue:

Pong, E., Baker, H., Bond, J., Helmhaus Zürich, & Edition Patrick Frey. (2016). Paradise paradoxe. Zurich: Edition Patrick Frey.

The publication includes essays by Jim Drobnick, Andreas Keller,

Chus Matínez, Gayil Nalls, Rachel Herz and many more.

 

A fragrant exhibition at Helmhaus Zürich
11 March – 8 May 2016 

You can close your eyes but you can’t turn off your nose. Elodie Pong, video and installation artist from Zurich, investigates the invisible olfactory architecture that surrounds us as the point of departure for her solo exhibition at Helmhaus Zürich. Visitors encounter plants that ripened in a 3-D printer, a robot that hurls the names of perfumes at the wall – and a fragrance that has never been smelled before (White, developed in collaboration with Roman Kaiser of Givaudan).

 

You can find more information (in German) here, or in English (as PDF).

And if you’re in Zurich, please join us tomorrow for the first meet-up of the Scent Culture Club (SCC) at the Karl der Grosse Center in the heart of the city (right across from Grossmünster)!
