    Daniel Silver at Art Basel Parcours

    Rock Formations
    18 – 21 June 2015
    Antikenmuseum, Basel for Art Basel Parcours

    On display at the Antikenmuseum Basel und Sammlung Ludwig, Daniel Silver’s Rock Formations (2014-2015) is composed of a series of semi-figurative sculptural works that embody the artist’s ongoing obsession with the ancient world. Presented by Frith Street Gallery (London), the works which make up the installation are composed of couplings or collages of stone and bronze heads placed directly on a piece of Carrara marble.

    Parcours looks to engage with Basel’s past and present by weaving artistic interventions into the fabric of the specific location each edition inhabits. The 2015 edition of Parcours will be sited in the historical center of Basel around the city’s iconic cathedral, infiltrating key locations such as the Museum of Culture, the Natural History Museum, the Town Hall and the Münsterplatz itself. 23 site-specific artworks by internationally renowned as well as emerging artists will be featured, the biggest selection to date.
