Zilla Leutenegger (*1968) is a nationally and internationally famous Swiss artist. Her works have been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions. The Art Museum Graubünden now shows a comprehensive overview of her work following its central topic: the significance of spaces as reservoir of memories, as places of longing, fears and dreams, but also as openings for the imagination. The exhibition is arranged as a large continuum and can be experienced as an integral whole: As a tour through inner and outer spaces with different insights and outlooks. She integrates older works and connects these with her most recent creations, which are shown here for the first time. Installations, projections and large-size pictorial works together create a world that seems completely private and yet very universal because in it we recognise ourselves, and with our memories and associations it allows us to become a part of a greater whole.
The exhibition is accompanied by a richly illustrated publication with texts by Elisabeth Bronfen, Patrick Frey, Max Küng, Stephan Kunz and Juri Steiner.
