Amongst Those Present
Réunion Zurich
Aug 2013
Happening

An experimental approach to one of contemporary art's major themes—the "unknown"—this project was executed on the occasion of the grand opening of Réunion in Zurich. For it, professional safecrackers emptied two ancient vaults, both of which had been sealed for over 20 years. Neither keys nor owners were known, and most importantly, no one knew what lurked within, so the unearthed findings were shared among all present. The hidden inspires collective imagination, dreams, and art alike.
