Zurich artist Harald Naegeli caused quite a stir back in the 1970s. His stick figures, which were illegally sprayed on house façades and mostly embodied nature spirits, even led to a warrant being issued by the Zurich police for his arrest.
Nowadays, the “Sprayer of Zurich” is a celebrated artist. At art ufnau, he is showing 37 previously unpublished drawings from his work, “Ufnauer Totentanz – ein Bilderzyklus der Vergänglichkeit” (Ufnau Dance of Death – a Picture Cycle of Transience). St. Martin’s Chapel on the island of Ufnau provides a spectacular exhibition space for the cycle. Here, Naegeli’s works perform a dance of death of the subconscious with in part disturbing imagery and somber symbolism.
The program is supplemented by guided tours, concerts, and readings on the theme of transience.
