The Proposal No.2; Untitled

Innovative gallery cum b&b returns with 2nd "proposal"...

You may recall us featuring Zürich’s The Proposal at the tail-end of last year – if you don’t then you really need to check it out – we said then that it’s “not just a gallery, but possibly the most astonishingly unique b&b we can recall”, and now the guys are back with the 2nd in a series of 6 planned proposals.

Running until February 12th, “Untitled” poses American philosopher Henry David Thoreau’s question “what are we busy about?” – as artists Jeremie Maret, Lenny Staples and Christian Weber explore the concept of workers losing perspective of what exactly it is they’re doing. 337 Euro-pallets fill the courtyard – and surround the 1977 Peugeot J7, one of the b&b’s two rooms – to symbolise industry and the production process, whilst inside the main gallery the question is posed about society’s connection to these processes.

Once again it’s innovative, thought-provoking and, well, we just can’t wait for No.3…

What Are We Busy About? What Are We Busy About? What Are We Busy About? What Are We Busy About? What Are We Busy About? What Are We Busy About? What Are We Busy About? What Are We Busy About? What Are We Busy About?
