Who knows why artists in Switzerland keep including drugs in their gallery shows, but hot on the heels of the ecstasy ordering robot, a new exhibition features the city of Zurich painted using a cocaine mixture.
“I wanted to paint a very prude artwork which looks like a master piece which you could find at your grandmother’s living room. The work gets its message only if you know what I mixed into the color”. And Onur adds: “This is how it is in real life. At the first glance Zurich looks very lovely and almost perfect. But at second one you will find out that not all is gold that glitters”
If this turns out like the drug bot incident, expect Swiss authorities to confiscate the work right around the 14th of February. That’s when the show’s run at Soon Gallery is scheduled to close.
