Gathering the works of four artists from Switzerland, Austria and Hungary, the exhibition aims to recreate a feeling of staged intimacy and interiority, recalling the visitor the artificiality and precarity of our personal Lebenswelten as well as of the codes of displaying cultural products such as contemporary art by placing the exhibition into an emptied living room. Some objects refer consciously to furniture and applied art, oscillating therefore between representation and application, while others recall classical picture formats, in which at second gaze portrait and landscape get deconstructed, with their primordial elements laying bare.
