Café Hammer Basel: Creeper, 2016

With Austin Lee and Corydon Cowensage

Curated by Deli Projects
13–19 June 2016, 
Café Hammer Basel

Taking place in the notorious night bar Café Hammer, the temporary gallery CREEPER has been developed site-specifically by the artists Corydon Cowensage and Austin Lee in collaboration with Deli Projects. The show includes painting, sculpting and a framework programme of performances, poetry and live music.

Each time Deli Projects (Jenny Baumat, Benedikt Wyss, Philippe Karrer) curates a new exhibition, they invite artists from varied disciplines to explore new places, resulting in unexpected collections of site-specific thoughts. This time, the curatorial team has invited NYC artists Austin Lee and Corydon Cowansage. Austin‘s work is dominated by the figure and sometimes explores the complexity of human and horse emotions. Corydon straddles the line between representation and abstraction, hinting playfully at bodily, plant and architectural forms. Austin made some dancing sculptures. Corydon put a painting on a chair. There will be some plants if the neighbors bring them.

CREEPER will host a series of perfor­mances, readings and concerts by Berlin-based Swiss performer and installation artist Reto Pulfer, Swiss poet and performer Jürg Halter (Bern), NY-based Norwegian performance artist Constance Tenvik, Basel-based vocalist Sarah E. Reid (CAN) and composer Tomek Kolczynski (CH/POL) with artist Zied Hadhri (TUN).

In the context of their two current programs CREEPER and HAUS#99 [last days] (Neuweilerstrasse 99) Deli Projects is also presenting a series of performances/concerts/DJing at Art Basel | Parcours Bar by the artists/musicians Sadaf H. Nava (US), Nathan Gray (AUS) and Sybren Renema (NL/SCO) a.o.

Deli hosts NY online radio Know Wave.
