Path of Humanity

Lucerne (Switzerland) | 11. April - 8. May 2015

Tanja Boukal

Soloexhibition. Art in discourse with humanitarian disasters.
Theme Months “Humanity”

In her work, the Austrian artist deals with humanitarian catastrophes, as happened in Lampedusa and Melilla. In collaboration with the AB Gallery Lucerne, the Bourbaki Panorama Foundation is showing selected works from The Melilla Project in the museum.

A white lace cloth, hand-knitted of highest quality cashmere by Tanja Boukal, bears the libretto of the Europe Anthem framed by barbed wire panels. This cloth accompanied the artist’s wanderings around Melilla. On both sides of the border, she took photographs of migrants wrapped in this luxury plaid, wrapped in these high ideals of Europe.
