Re-relating in art practice
ISBN 9789090354699

As an “exhibition” in book format, the publication
reflects the relationships between the artworks and
art practices of a group of artists presented in text and
image. It brings up this “in-between space” in texts
by various authors and makes the field of interaction
visible and tangible.

Corona protocol ciphers M1 – 2020
Location: Museum1, Luzern-Adligenswil, Swit-
zerland



While passing through Switzerland, the Corona
Lockdown in April put me on the spot, mainly
with friends in the Italian-speaking part of Swit-
zerland and occasionally in Lucerne. The
Corona ciphers were created during these
weeks of isolation and this mode of being
thrown back on oneself, which we all experi-
enced ourselves. They record in a cipher-like
abbreviated
form the timeless sequence of days of the
week, the names of the places where he stay-
ed or the friends who hosted him, as well as
the activities and events of the day.

situational history:

The 100th issue of the 975 art magazine of
the artist and publisher Stehan Wittmer, who
values independence, was to become a major
event: 100 artists were invited to take a ten-pa-
ge magazine (printed with the photographic
motif of the moving sea surface and titled town
ho) as a starting point for their own work. The
title Town ho is based on the story of Mobby
Dick, a seafaring novel by the writer
Herman Melville.

I glued the magazine to be an object in which
angle measurement is important, and the de-
termination of the horizontal in case of strong
heeling etcetera etcetera.
