Salutation and introduction to the exhibition by Michael Sutter, director of Kunsthalle Luzern
About the exhibition
At Kunsthalle Luzern the German artist Mirko Reisser (DAIM) (born 1971 in Lüneburg (Germany), lives and works in Hamburg) will realize a large-scale graffiti-work directly on site onto the exhibition wall. For the artist it will be a return to a site known to him from his past: Mirko Reisser studied Fine Arts at Lucern University of Applied Sciences and Arts 20 years ago, before he returned to Germany and acquired worldwide recognition as a graffiti artist.
In so-called “Writing” the main element of the pictorial composition is the artist name DAIM in a very unique and site-specific design. The typography in the works of Mirko Reisser is based on processes of construction and deconstruction, the abstract letter formation functions as the core component of his three-dimensional works. The four letters serve DAIM as a tool, to push visual and personal boundaries in his highly complex 3D-Style and by doing so also discover himself. Consequently, his works can also always be seen as self-portraits.
An accompanying poster-booklet is published.
