The exhibition Die Rückseite des Spiegels at Kunstmuseum Solothurn in 2011 focused on Albrecht Schnider's sculptures and paper works from the past 25 years.
The title Die Rückseite des Spiegels alludes to the behavioral scientist Konrad Lorenz (1903-1989). Like Lorenz, the artist is interested in processes of knowledge, in particular in questioning the methods and limits of this field of research. The catalogue starts with the early charcoal portrait drawings of the early 1990s up to the painting series of the 'empty' heads, which was completed a few years ago. The works on paper are juxtaposed with the small sculptures created from 2000 onwards - strikingly small plinth works made from (studio) waste, which look like models or ideas for works still to be executed. It would probably be more appropriate to call them assemblages.
