ABOUT KAREN SARGSYAN
The base of my work is to show pure essence of human being. I look at the influences that people undergo in their life the same way as I look at a theaterplay. I want to show this play. My work does not consist of static images, but shows an active process. My figures are in the middle of a scene that will change their life. You see the moment when they falter; the moment that every firm idea or thought, suddenly looks different; the moment of wonder. That is the moment human being shows its true nature. The figures are theatrical, compelling and vulnerable as a child. Books or myths often lie at the base of my installations. The figures are caught in the moment, while the scene refers to a history. My installations consist of several three- dimensional figures. They are literally and figuratively layered.
SELECTION OF COLLECTIONS OF KAREN SARGSYAN

AMC Collection, Rabo Art Collection, HVCCA Art Collection, Nederlandse Bank Art Collection, Achmea Art Collection

ABOUT MARC MULDERS
The studio of Marc Mulders (1958) is based in a stable in the middle of a field full of wild flowers. Whilst painting in the doorway the bees buzz and the butterflies are fluttering around his donkey. Mulders calls his garden “my own private Giverny” a reference to the famous gardens of Claude Monet, a great example for him. In his pasty almost abstract oil paintings, he follows the course of nature around him: “In the spring and summer I sniff the scents, and in the autumn I paint my head with the echo of that floral splendor. I am driven by the desire for the new flowers that will arise in my field “says Mulders.

VOLTA will be back in Basel during the Art Basel week for its 15th time and this year I have amazing news for you all. There is a PROMO CODE to get FREE TICKETS to VOLTABASEL19
It’s super easy just use the code isawsomethingnice on www.voltashow.com/tickets for a general admission ticket (max 2 tickets per booking). FYI the Vernissage is on June 10th from 12-7 pm and is free for everyone so you can get yourself some free tickets to see the fair from June 11th to June 15th 2019!
VOLTA, Basel’s art fair for new international positions, debuted in 2005 as a collaboration between dealers and friends. The aim was to secure a platform for international galleries beyond young art stalwart Liste and market heavyweight Art Basel. Concerns and aspirations of the exhibiting gallerists have been first and foremost since VOLTA’s inception; in combination with the curatorial mind of Artistic Director Amanda Coulson, eclectic and dynamic presentations with a strong focus on solo presentations find a stage as refined as at the main fair.

Noted for being a “space for discovery”, VOLTA returns to the former COOP distribution center as the newest cultural hub in Basel. Located across from the Novartis Campus at Elsässerstrasse 215, just 9 minutes away from the main fair and within the neighborhood of the very first venue at Voltaplatz. VOLTA sets the tone and plants its (artistic) flag as the first major event within the space.
VOLTA assembles 79 galleries across four continents and 25 nations to showcase compelling artist projects. This year my friend Annelien Kers will be present with KERS GALLERY and I am so happy to share with you some information about her gallery and her featured artist/s soon.
