Luca Curci – Your work was exhibited during Hidden Rooms exhibition in Venice on November 2014: can you talk about your personal experience in Venice with International ArtExpo?

Huber.Koelliker – It is the first time the Swiss art duo huber.koelliker is on an international platform and we are very proud of it. Our Project “Le chevreuil courant aux oreilles de lapin” was unfortunatly not sponsored by anyone. So we could not be present at Venice.

L. C. – Can you talk about the artwork you presented in Venice? How is it linked with the festival’s theme?

H. K. – On first sight, you notice a simple narrative story about a woman playing saxophone and a hunter who is shooting. The hidden identity is the archetypical meaning of acting like a woman or a man. This hidden story can be told and discussed in many different ways and everytime being told or discussed it also shows the hidden indentity of the one speaking about.

L. C. – What are you currently working on?

H. K. – We are working on “raging water”, a project in Swiss mountains. It will mix up recordings of saxophone improvisations and filmed sequences of mountain waters. An edition of computer modified prints will accomplish the work.
