Intervention # 15
Museum Boijmans van Beuningen regularly invites contemporary artists to offer an intervention, a presentation in which they reflect on the collection or relate to the museum building. For example, Perforated Perspective, a photo installation by Hans Wilschut in the stairway by Robbrecht & Daem was also known as Intervention # 14. Requiem of Heroism by Anne Wenzel was Intervention #13. Intervention # 15 was The studio in the Heavens by the Swiss art duo Andres Lutz en Anders Guggisberg and consisted of pieces of scenery for a theatre piece that was performed in May 2010 by three different companies in the Stadstheater in Bern.
Andres Lutz and Anders Guggisberg are from Switzerland and have a studio together. They do not make art in easily digestible chunks, nor do they serve up possible meanings on a platter. A viewer shouldn’t even want such patronising behaviour from above. Experiencing art is personal and what makes art so special is that meaning isn’t fixed, but streams, bends, intertwines and changes with the spirit of the time. In this interview, the artist duo talk about the origins of the installation The Studio in the Heavens and about the different ways in which you, as museum visitor, can view it. This interview is a compilation of an interview with Lutz & Guggisberg in Boijmans TV (episode 9). The interview is supplemented with material which could not, for time constraints, be included in the television programme.
