Full Description

Swiss artist Rochus Lussi, born in 1965, examines the individual’s existence in the mass. Issues of vulnerability, sensitivity, and defensibility are also key topics of his art, for which he mainly employs the mediums of sculpture and installation, but also drawings and performance.

This first monograph on Lussi offers a broad survey of his work from 30 years, featuring small and multi-part installations, wood sculptures, works on paper, and photographs of his performance actions. The human figure is at the core of his early works, yet over time this begins to dissolve, and forms from everyday life, structures, draperies, surfaces of different body worlds come to the fore. The comprehensive visual presentation of Lussi’s oeuvre is supplemented with essays contributed by art historians, curators, and art educators.

Text in English and German.
