The Poltergeist Experimental Group (PEG) Applied Spirituality and Physical Spirit Manifestation Florian Germann - The Poltergeist Experimental Group (PEG) Applied Spirituality and Physical Spirit Manifestation
First monograph, documenting the cycles of works "The Poltergeist Experimental Group" (PEG), "Applied Spirituality and Physical Spirit" (2011), "Saint Helena/Riches from the Depths of the Mountains" (2010), and "The Werewolf of Vienna" (2009).
Published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Zurich, from November 2011 to january 2012.
In his wide-ranging cycles of works, each of which is devoted to a unifying thematic narrative, the Swiss artist Florian Germann (born 1978, lives and works in Zurich) creates complex systems of reference, playing with the role of the artist-researcher. As points of departure for these individual experimental arrangements, Germann uses characters from history such as Napoleon, or motifs from myth and fantasy such as lycanthropy (from the Greek lukos, "wolf," and anthropos, "man": the werewolf), which he subjects to a revisionary rewriting, interweaving factual and fictional aspects.
Edited by Raphael Gygax and Heike Munder.
