3 weeks, 35 artists, 15 faculty and what do you get?
An exhibition of the Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art created a series of site-specific installations and performances.
Visitors were invited to witness the temporary transformation of the tourist office, the streets, the meadows and the surroundings of this village. The works reflected on the notion of the singularity submerged in the multiple. They aim to link the knowledge learnt, shared and re-conceived during the weeks spent at the Institute, whilst using multiple means to generate conversations within space.
