The video is available in English
The new online series provides all who are interested with exciting insights into topics and questions about the artistic positions of the exhibitions. For the Artist-Statement, the artists are each asked five short questions, whereby new insights into their work emerge and a current reference to conceptual art is established.
Lorenza Longhi (*1991 Lecco, lives in Zurich) appropriates graphic image materials from advertising and marketing industries, among others, through various artistic processes. By isolating and re-integrating them into art, the power structures hidden behind the imagery are made visible. For the HALLE FÜR KUNST, Longhi combines images of luxury consumer goods with echoes of modernist formal language and incorporates these elements into pavilion-like arrangements.
