#Mysweetquarantine: At Home During Coronavirus Outbreak?

The past weeks have brought unprecedented changes to all of us around the world.  Prioritizing health and safety have meant
canceling events and closing doors. The Coronavirus outbreak has posed huge challenges for the art businesses, and containment measures turned audiences away from the arts and culture in the physical realm.  We may not be physically present, but we are still here to help you! 
[dip] commitment in helping collectors with their purchases and enhancing their art collections, as well as their value, is perhaps now stronger than ever.

tales

Opening: March 12, h. 18.00
On view: March 13 – May 25, 2020

Peter Wüthrich’s work evolves around the solid, but precarious fabric “book”, which he uses for construction, colour, picture and lettering; like no other contemporary artist, Wüthrich has been working on the metamorphoses of the book with obsession and ease since the 1990’s. Following and developing his poetic of the “book”, his investigation may easily serve as additional reflection to the changes and questions in today’s media. tales is the first solo show in the region of Tessin, Switzerland and marks the beginning of a collaboration with [dip]. Featuring a selection of recent works, tales reflects the artist’s investigation into books, dissociating them from their original purposes to become infinite metaphors for the world, a recurrent interest which Peter has consistently explored over the course of a career spanning more than thirty years.
