“Los Últimos Serán Los Primeros” – “The Last Shall Be the First“, under this contrasting and somewhat controversial title stands this, our first participation at the KUNST 12 ZÜRICH fair in Oerlikon. Six artists from South America and Europe will be showing their latest and most gripping pieces on this subject.

The stunning installation “Breath”, an over-sized lung constrained inside two giant ship containers created by Swiss artist Carlo Borer, forms the centrepiece. The lung is artificially respired by two big external ventilators, trying to expand itself, but is eventually limited by the container’s restrictive walls. The “keeping alive” of an abstruse and paradoxical construct is a pessimistic, yet tender symbol for our culture and our ever-increasing population.

In the epochal triptych “Los Últimos Serán Los Primeros”, the Argentinian artist group Mondongo focuses on the urbanisation of our society. In 2009, for the first time, more people lived in big cities than in rural areas. With ecologically questionable logistics and a lot of effort the people living in these metropolis can be fed. But for how much longer?

With his apocalyptical masterpiece “Ashes to Ashes”, Gordon Cheung dares to look further into the future and presents the “spectre” of a dead planet hostile to life. Be curious and let yourself be enchanted by our monumental highlights “Breath”, “Los Últimos Serán Los Primeros” and “Ashes to Ashes” just as by the fascinating works of Artists Anonymous, Lorena Guzmán and Pierre-Alain Münger.
