A new monograph on the Swiss artist's work, gathering several new essays as well as many examples of the recent prints produced by Gygi.
Designed by Gavillet & Rust
in close collaboration with the artist, the book hides in its Japanese binding a series of photographs by Olivier Pasqual of Gygi's customized car and accessories.
Produced by the Musée des Beaux-Arts du Locle, on the occasion of the Triennale du Locle.
Author of numerous performances, printed projects, and self-organized events in the 1980s up to the mid-1990s, Gygi has always claimed a social and political dimension to his work. The architectural structures or the public systems that he reproduces (screens, terraces, tents, stands, etc.) reveal the authoritative aspects and the control systems of our society.
