Triangolo, Cremona

Samuel Haitz

For Art-O-Rama 2024 Triangolo proposes a solo presentation of Swiss Artist Samuel Haitz comprising both sculptural and photographic works :

 

“A melee of public and private objects—the memories and desires of artist Samuel Haitz, as well the latent traces of his methodology—conflates “micro-histories of the self with the universal,” yielding obfuscated glimpses into a personal and historic queer autobiography.

 

Essential works of queer art, poetry, and prose are churned through Haitz’s process: rites of appropriation, reproduction, and repetition transform these components beyond their initial status as “readymades.” This is, per Haitz, a “photo-appropriative” gesture.

 

Haitz‘s flagship ongoing series of vitrines surreptitiously named “Archive” deploys stagings of the artist‘s personal effects. Although the objects appear like the contents of a pocket turned out onto a bedside table, the ontology of the vitrine as a means of display prevents the acceptance of this logic. Both the imposition of the acrylic membrane separating the viewer from the site of Haitz‘s act and the serial, imitative aspect of his work permits scrutiny of his sleight of hand.

 

The overwhelming paradox of a highly produced yet quotidian approach reveals the ways Haitz manages the vast formal and conceptual historical significances of his materials.”– Olamiju Fajemisin
