Dominic Michel (b. 1987) examines the cultural significance of objects and the way this significance can be changed in his works. In his CARAVAN exhibition at the Aargauer Kunsthaus, Michel shows a full-scale concert grand of wood which is missing its innards. As a result, the instrument is transformed from a prestige object into an empty shell and, figuratively speaking, a mere sounding board.
The Series of Exhibitions of Young Swiss art is a fixture in the programme. CARAVAN offers the public opportunities to encounter surprising young art and discover as yet unestablished artists at the Aargauer Kunsthaus.
Over the course of the year, the three solo exhibitions appear as “mobile interventions” in different locations at the museum. The artists are invited to bring their works into a dialogue with the building, the collection and the programme of the Kunsthaus.
