Installation view: 'Jorge Macchi. Container', Kunstmuseum Luzern, Lucerne, 2013

"Container" (2013) is an installation that creates great tension. An actual container is in the exhibition space and with its great steel mass, the visitor wonders how the building resists the weight of the huge piece. The artist sees the various rooms of an exhibition place as containers which are to be filled with content. Humorously Jorge Macchi now created a contained container, which was ripped out of its context and relocated to an exhibition room, where its contents weight could overpower the spectator below.
