Die Ausstellung «GLOBAL HAPPINESS» von Helvetas handelt von einer glücklichen, nachhaltigen Welt und nimmt die Frage auf, wie alle Menschen auf der Erde zufrieden und innerhalb der Ressourcen des Planeten leben können. Das Glücksstreben ist eine alte, weltweite Sehnsucht des Menschen.
The NIBELUNGENLIED is a legendary epic so many have heard of, while few know the original. This medieval heroic saga is famous . The Russian artist Genia Chef, who has lived in the West for decades, is fascinated by the tragic violence of this epic; the eternal drama of love-hate, loyalty and betrayal, power games and battles, which through their rich contrasts are as if made for graphic interpretation. He draws with bird feathers and ink on papier déchiré prepared with tea stains and, as the art critic Mark Gisbourne writes in his foreword to the exhibition catalogue, uses „controlled chance“ for his elaborate picture cycle. “Chef’s drawings are less about storytelling but rather about illuminating a world.”
