Between Four Walls

[14.06.14 – 31.08.14]



Sion, Switzerland

Los Carpinteros have been selected to participate in the Triennale of Contemporary Art in Sion, Switzerland curated by Helen Hirsch, Director of the Kunstmuseum Thun. Entitled ‘Between Four Walls’, the exhibition will take place in an ancient penitentiary, which now serves as an art space. Through the site’s location and bygone associations, the show explores the relationship between architectural spaces and their distinct historic strata, from a local as well as global point of view. More particularly, the site ties into Los Carpinteros’ ongoing interest in the panopticon, a space for disciplinary control designed by Jeremy Bentham that they have repeatedly re-imagined as a site for interaction.
