Collection on Display showcases selected works from the collections of the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst. The new exhibition puts the focus on sculptures by Oscar Tuazon and Banks Violette. Despite the considerable differences between their formal aesthetics, both artists’ works point up the fragility of our existence. Tuazon’s sculptural objects bear the marks of physical disintegration; Violette signals decay with a symbolism derived from the iconography of heavy metal music.
