Daniel Turner (* 1983) is engaged in a critical examination of the lives of objects, often melting down, liquifying, burning, or otherwise transmuting the materiality of everyday objects into other forms. The US-American artist probes how the materialities of objects retain embedded traces and histories of the contexts for which they were made and in which they were used. For his first institutional solo exhibition in Switzerland, he has created a new body of sculptures made from elements extracted from sites in the Basel region that triangulate between architecture, the pharmaceutical industry, and psychology.
