For her first institutional solo exhibition in Europe, Dora Budor (* 1984) investigates the architectural history of Kunsthalle Basel and its surroundings in order to use sound, dust, and environmental data from dissonant temporalities to create an evolving “score” for her exhibition. Inspired in equal measure by science fiction, cinematic staging, and the overwhelming hybridization of nature with the human-made, the Croatian-born artist turns the exhibition into a reactive machine. The result is a disquieting exhibition experience, with artworks whose unfolding forms are modulated by invisible forces.
