‘OH! PLASTIC SACK’ the show curated by Susanna Kumschick und Ida Marie Corell is travelling from Winterthur to Lausanne.
This time the MUDAC will be taken over by plastic bags. This time a museum rather than the natural environment will be filled with plastic. This time I will be in ‘good’ company with plenty other bags!
LINN ANNEN a fashion and custom designer whose work extends into the fine arts limbo. Her creations are a very personal view of how clothing and fine arts should mingle together:
Here is how Linn describes her work for CENTRAL BOOKING in New York City where her work is currently on display:
“I am dealing with different forms of expressions on the border between fashion and art. The basic idea of my work is to wear art on the body. I create so-called ”wearable objects” composed of different materials, colors and shapes. A combination of new and used materials, parts of garments, and fabrics is part of my style. “Word-robes“ are clothes, which become an area for the projection of my thoughts. I like to turn the inside out and to use the fashion surface as a medium for personal text fragments and aphorisms. A special way of handwriting done with sewing machine is characteristic feature of my work”.
CONNIE KRAUS a stone mason carver by trade applies her tactile skills creating poetic and sensual interior designer objects which go under the trademark of MOHNLICHT

Palazzo Bottigella is plastic bag free!
As from yesterday the beautiful renaissance palazzo is getting ready to welcome new ventures. Artists, watch out for that magnificent space!
I’ve just come back from Pavia with a huge van full of bags: all the work created during my six weeks at Palazzo Bottigella.
The bags that invaded the ancient frescoed surrounding are now in a huge pile waiting to be transformed into new forms and concepts. The next show is quickly approaching. Soon the bags will be at MUDAC in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Once again I would like to thank the Calisti family for all their support. It has been a mad adventure that has open new views and doors on new possibilities. The access to such a unique amazing space as well as to new materials have definitely contributed to further my artist practice.
In 2007 I was commissioned by film director Caroline Bridges to set my ‘field of Emptiness’ at the Solihull Art Centre in the Midlands, UK. This collaboration resulted in ‘Disposable Love’ a large scale site-specific mix media installation.
Here is a video of it

Thank you Verónica! Not just for been such an amazing reporter but also for all your patience, your support and for putting up once again with me and my crazy projects!
