Biography

Teresa Hubbard and Alexander Birchler have been working collaboratively in video, photography and sculpture since 1990. The artists draw influence from the early history of film and photography to investigate relationships between architecture and narrative, character and environment; psychic and physical space. Rather than following a traditional storyline or narrative resolution, Hubbard and Birchler’s works reveal elaborate and enigmatic mise-en-scènes that invite personal and open-ended reflections on memory, place and cinema.

 

Born in Dublin, Ireland in 1965, Teresa Hubbard attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine in 1987, followed by the MFA Sculpture Program at Yale University School of Art in 1988. Alexander Birchler was born in 1962 in Baden, Switzerland and studied at the Basel School of Fine Arts from 1983-87, as well as the University of Art and Design in Helsinki in 1985. Hubbard and Birchler began collaborating as artists-in-residence at the Banff Centre for the Arts and later completed graduate degrees at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax, Canada in 1992. 

 

Notable solo exhibitions include Eight, Eighteen at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery (2014) and Sound Speed Marker at Ballroom Marfa in Texas (2014) which travelled to the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2014) and the Blaffer Museum of Art, Houston (2015) and was accompanied by a comprehensive monographic publication. In 2008, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth opened the artists’ first major touring survey in the United States entitled No Room To Answer, which traveled to Wurttembergischer Kunstverein in Stuttgart, Germany and Aargauer Kunsthaus in Switzerland through 2009. 

Other recent solo museum exhibitions include Eight, Eighteen at Linda Pace Foundation, San Antonio (2013-14); Single Wide at Saint Louis Art Museum (2012); Eight, at Museum Brandhorst in Munich (2012-13); Hello Darkness at K21 Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen in Dusseldorf (2008); House with Pool at Miami Art Museum (2006); Little Pictures at Mrs. Owen's House at Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea, Santiago de Compostela; Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler at Museum Sammlung Goetz, Munich (2005); House with Pool, Museum für Gegenwartskunst Basel; Single Wide at Whitney Museum of American Art (2004) and Wild Walls at Museum Haus Lange and Esters, Krefeld, (2001) which toured to Huis Marseille Museum for Photography, Amsterdam and Kunsthalle Kiel through 2003. Their work was also presented at the Venice Biennale in 1999, again in 2010 as part of the Biennale’s 12th International Architecture Exhibition and in 2008 at the Busan Biennial, South Korea.

 

Hubbard and Birchler’s work is well represented in private and public collections internationally, including those of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C.; International Center of Photography in New York; Kunsthaus Zürich; Modern Art Museum, Fort Worth; Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles; Museum of Fine Arts Houston; Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich; Museum für Gegenwartskunst Basel; Kunstmuseum Basel; Staedel Museum Frankfurt; Staatsgalerie Stuttgart; Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich and the Columbus Museum of Art, Ohio, among others.
