Les frères Chapuisat


Beach by Loodswezenplein

The Chapuisat brothers are a Swiss artists duo who prefer to stand aside from purely conceptual work. On the contrary they prefer the tangible and concrete: art lovers who want to experience their work, are more often forced to creep into a hole on their knees, in order to experience the work of art from the inside with grazed elbows. Erratique is a framework of metal reinforcing bars and wire netting, which was then sprayed with cement. The mysterious grey hump seems to have something in common with the erratic stones which move with the tide, such as those at Stonehenge or the stone monuments on Easter Island. Thus the Chapuisat brothers are extending an age-old phenomenon with a modern element.
