Installations

  • Genesis 2

    Rychenbergstrasse 67, Winterthur, Switzerland

    Artist collective Projektil’s latest show is a continuation of last year’s major success, Genesis. Genesis 2 finds days 4 to 7 of the creation story staged in the sacred space of Lucerne’s Church of St. Leodegar. The ceiling, walls and other structures of the church are brought to life by means of light projections, mesmerising the audience under an open sky that provides a visual reinterpretation of the history of creation. A heavenly fantasy world in a breathtaking venue. The show lasts about 20 minutes.

    Projektil

    Over the past two years, the Zurich-based artists' collective Projektil has delighted over 250,000 spectators with shows such as Illuminarium, Light Ragaz and Illuminated Art.
