The 12th edition of the Swiss Sculpture Exhibition Biel/Bienne (Switzerland) is entitled Le Mouvement. The contemporary art exhibition is dedicated to performance in the urban space. Among the invited artists is the Czech, Prague-based Jiří Kovanda, who presents his work Kissing Through Glass, a performance in which he invites passers by to exchange a kiss through a glass window. In Biel/Bienne, the performance took place at the entrance of the Volkshaus (Maison du Peuple).
Jiri Kovanda: Kissing Through Glass. Le Mouvement – Performing the City, 12th Swiss Sculpture Exhibition 2014, Biel/Bienne, Switzerland. Performance, August 30, 2014.
Czech, Prague-based artist, Jiří Kovanda (b. 1953) active since the 70s, has earned an international reputation for his slight, poetic yet very potent gestures, actions and interventions. For Le Mouvement, he presents Kissing Through Glass, a performance in which he invites passersby to exchange a kiss through a glass window. At once joining and dividing lips through glass, this work inevitably speaks to the boundaries between the public and the private, interior and exterior, and most importantly, between bodies themselves.
