Bally debuts KOLKOZ’s Form Scratch at Art Basel

By Codi Mohr

June 20, 2014

Modernity, function, and innovation are part of a year-long exhibition by accessories designer Bally of French and Swiss modernist architects and designers. Curator Anissa Touati assembled a collection of Swiss designer Pierre Jeanerret’s most iconic furniture as a tribute to the modernist artist for the traveling show, which made its first stop at Art Basel 2014 this week.

To toast the exhibit, Bally brought in French duo Kolkoz to create an homage to both Jeanneret and the modernist concepts the he pioneered. The installation, “Form Scratch,” has the appearance of a deconstructed house suspended over the Rhine River in the Basel Harbor by boat crane. Resembling “a toy as much as a construction,” Kolkoz’s house is a work in progress with further renovations to appear at Art Basel Miami Beach and in Hong Kong. The public can watch the progression of the piece along with a series of interviews with seven art world personalities on Bally’s blog, Function & Modernity.
