British art at the Kunsthalle & Zurich Art at Helmhaus

With the International Art Festival starting in Zurich next Friday and the art theme in mind, you might be interested to know that British artist Helen Marten has an exhibition at the Kunshthalle Zurich entitled “Almost the Exact Shape of Florida” which runs until the 4th November. Marten has created a group of works interweaving diverse forms of media – from sculptures to wall pieces and floor works – all in a comprehensive exhibition. Marten pokes fun at the idea of ownership and dishonesty in materials, the relationship of object to artefact and of package to product.
