Web finissage and documentation from Luzerne

The monthly long exhibition AAA CC DD EE G H IIII J KK LLL M NN OOOO RRRR U at Produzentengalerie Luzerne, Switzerland has now come to an end. 

Curated by Ray Hegelbach and Stéphanie Lagarde with the artists Nicolas Colon (USA), Cecilie Bjørgås Jordheim (NO), Mikko Kuorinki (FIN), Stéphanie Lagarde (FR) and Oliver Laric (AUT).

They clean, they order, they simplify. 
These five artists are methodical.  
Where there are too many rules they wipe some off, where there is no need for rules they embed some in. 

Elaborated curatorial statement here.

Here follows a set of installation and performance photos of my project Horizon. No Horizon.
