Press Release
Zurich – 1/01/2008
Red Door Gallery - Zurich

On 28 February Protected content , Red Door Gallery in Zurich launches an exhibition of work by the young Russian painter Elena Habicher (b. Protected content . Habicher has been steadily gaining a reputation as one of today’s most promising international painters crossing the boundary between classic figurative and graphic illustration work. Following successful exhibitions at numerous international galleries and art fairs, including the 6th Florence Biennale, Primo Piano Living Gallery, Berliner Liste, and others, her newest body of work can now be seen for the first time in a solo exhibition in Switzerland. The show features a selection of painting, video and light installations many created especially for this exhibition.

For Uncomfortable Transparency Habicher targets our sensibilities about relationship, displacement, sexuality, and identity to create a compelling view of the human condition. In many ways the work is a social commentary on the emotional and physical challenge of cultural assimilation. In others, it becomes a deep analysis of the psychological undercurrent dealing with a woman's "place" in society and her ability to be a controller, manipulator, nurturer, or object of desire. Habicher utilizes friends and found imagery as her source material. She creates unique photorealistic imagery by painting directly on plastic or acetate sheets which when combined with light, create unique frame stills similar to projected film transparencies. This interesting and time-consuming technique adds a three dimensional quality to the work which changes depending upon the frequency and intensity of light.

Uncomfortable Transparency can be seen from 28 February to 5 April at Red Door Gallery, Zurich, open daily 14. Protected content , Wednesday 16. Protected content . Entry is free. Private viewings are also available by appointment.

See you there
