THE LION'S LOCKDOWN

2020

 

"A monument where usually several thousand tourists from all over the world gather day after day, has become quiet in a state of emergency: the Lucerne Lion lies deserted. The Lucerne artists Barbara Hennig Marques and Olivia Lecomte take advantage of the peculiar situation in front of the monument and illustrate with the photo series "The Lion's Lockdown" in seven cycles the new sentiments of this disjointed time. The Lion's Monument 21 project of the Kunsthalle Lucerne publishes this impressive photographic art as a digital performance in social media and on its homepage almost daily until the beginning of June." (Karin Mairitsch, Curator of Lionmonument 21)
