Christian Frosi, 1973 in Mailand geboren, präsentiert überraschende und hintergründige Installationen, in denen er sich mit Begriffen wie Subjekt, Qualität, Öffentlichkeit und formale Entwicklung und ihrer gegenseitigen Abhängigkeit auseinandersetzt. In Basel 2003 liess er z.B: weissen Schaum auf eine Strasse fliessen (Foam 2003). "Ich denke nicht, das die Kunst sich ihrer eigenen physischen Essenz ganz bewusst ist...Mich interessiert es, diese Qualitäten, die ein Kunstwerk ausmachen und beschreiben, zu trennen und sie weiter auseinander zu bringen" (Frosi).

Der Künstler sagt über die Ausstellung bei Rüdiger Schöttle:
"All the works in the show are related at the concept of number 2, like a reflection of the same thing or a split in a two parts of a singularity. Every single work can be perceived like a space between two points that allow me to use the idea of distance inside my work in different ways: formal, cultural or physical. 
Sometimes I like to play with physical distance using geographical connection with my works. Chris Dercon shoes are a way to connect my sculpture to the social city's context. 
The double text of Piraha tribe is a way to point out a different horizon, to talk about different structures of languages (and talking about a distance is the first act to decrease it.) 
The bicycle-work is divided in two wood tubes; it is an abstract system to maintain the singularity in a double form that can play with the space.
The wall sculpture is an extemporary action on an everyday object like media images. Everyday object like the shoes and the bicycle. (Like simple words when you try to learn a new language.)
The definitive form of the black form on the wall was not predicted and its fragile relation with the upsidedown image is the research of an incompatible co-existence. The title of the work is in relation to the Piraha tribe and the actual incompatibility between their language and ours."
(Christian Frosi)
