New Swiss Performance Now: Raphael Hefti, Florence Jung

Raphael Hefti, We are not one way trip to mars people, 2018, study for the performance

Raphael Hefti presents a new performance entitled We are not one way trip to mars people.

The action pivotal quest revolves around some fundamental visual codes we all share spanning from the tropes of painting to the street marking vocabulary and combine their means through the macroscopic dimension of labour. The result is a performance that liberates their scopes and reconfigures it by making use of specific gestural procedures and through an ephemeral temporality.

Hefti’s crew will be composed of a team of professional street markers together with whom the artist will create an impressive floor painting by misusing a street marking machine.

Florence Jung’s work Jung59 takes place at the same time.

Daily and over the whole duration of the exhibition Marta Margnetti presents her new work Dispositivo di protezione (protective device), 2018, and every Thursday to Sunday Jérôme Leuba presents battlefeld #132, 2018. An overview of the performance times of the exhibition can be found here.
