His work «Lamp of Urban Expectations» provides for a fascinating interplay of transparency, creates reflections and color effects. The luminous object created especially for Homburger welcomes our visitors in the entrance area.
a celebration of art
Art is a source of inspiration and a catalyst for atmosphere. The artworks we have curated are not only here to be seen – they imbue our space with meaning.
Whether alone, in tandem or as a group, these pieces – spread across eight floors in the Prime Tower – reflect the unique styles of the artists who created them.
When we moved into the Prime Tower in 2011, we invited prominent artists from Switzerland and from abroad to put their talent to work and give each individual floor a special touch. The result: artworks that appear to stand alone at first glance, but nevertheless form a unified, captivating whole (curator: Ulrich Gerster).
«Way Horizontal Bands of Color» is a six-part work by the artist. This work has accompanied Homburger for a long time and forms the basis for the work of the other artists.
The work «Piff Paff Puff» is dedicated to the phenomenon of counting-out rhymes and thus to decision-making. The work extends through the floor in five languages, filling entire walls or in the form of long bands of writing.
At six crossing points of the corridors the artist creates partially unfolded color bodies («Lotus in Room 1-6»). The surfaces of the bodies extend in a highly glossy and reflective manner over walls, cupboards, ceilings and floors.
With her abstract spray work the artist creates an impressive intervention in space. The work covers walls, ceilings, and cabinets, thus creating an impressively plastic world of images.
The art duo works with colored bands that weave together into an impenetrable network. The forms and the colors used in the work «Beautiful Wall # 20» resemble the architecture of the Prime Tower.
With over 600 individual, stucco crystals, the artist’s work extends into the room as «stucco». In their form, the objects develop a multiplication of the Prime Tower’s exterior form.
An expressive declaration of love to the beauty of the world and the transience of existence. «In Love With What Vanishes» celebrates life in a colorful way and sets strong contrasts against the light.
