People who have saved this event:



In his first solo exhibition in London, the renowned Swiss artist Urs Lüthi will present, within his cycle “ART IS THE BETTER LIFE“, a special project for GALLERY SO showing recent glass sculpture, photography and graphic works.

”¨Urs Lüthi is an important representative of European Conceptual Art; already his works from the 70's testify to an extremely complex and ambivalent way of dealing with photography and the topic of self-portraits.

Lüthi's art is provoking, combines irony and self-irony with a controlled quest for form. The artist has managed to raise his autobiography, his ego, his body, and its various physiological changes to a single coherent work of art. Independent of the various applied media in his work, he has remained faithful to that certain line along which a life becomes an aesthetic experience.
