About the work

This work is a memory of a winter in the Swiss Alps.

About the artist:

Born 1975 Geneva, Marc Bauer lives and works in Berlin and Zurich. Graduated from BA Fine Art at HEAD Geneva (1999); and Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, Amsterdam (2004).

Bauer's work deals with the representation of history and memory, taking historical events and their documentation, reworking them in a drawing-based process, and placing them in new contexts.
The results of this approach are often presented in the form of installations, with drawings made on a range of materials: paper, aluminium, or straight onto the wall. Preceded by extensive research, Bauer's works present historiography as a construction that is always subject to personal interpretation.

Selected solo exhibitions includ L'Etat de la mer (Lame de fond, 2011-2020), FRAC Auvergne, Clermont-Ferrand (2021); The Blow-Up Regime, Berlinische Galerie, Berlin (2020); Mi piace Commenta Condividi, a Rhetorical Figure, Istituto Svizzero Milano, Milan (2020); Mal-Ȇtre / Performance, De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill on Sea (2020); Mal-Ȇtre / Performance, Drawing Room, London (2019); and Tracing Identities, Frieze Project, London (2017). Selected group exhibitions include Smoke and Mirrors: The Roaring Twenties, Guggenheim Bilbao (2021); Schall und Rauch, Die wilden Zwanziger, Kunsthaus Zurich (2020); United by AIDS-An about Loss, Remembrance, Activism and Art in Response to HIV/AIDS, Migros Museum, Zurich (2019); and SUPERPOSITION: Art of Equilibrium and Engagement, 21st Biennale of Sydney (2018).

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm, Mon 5th July. However, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Bid Increments

£50 increments for bids of £300 – £1,000

£100 increments for bids of £1,000 – £2,000

£250 increments for bids of £2,000 – £5,000

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
