Over the last decade, Diego Marcon (*1985) has used cinematic and sculpture means to interrogate the fraught relationship between reality and representation. Tracing inspirations ranging from the cinematic genres of horror to slapstick comedy, the musical to the cartoon, the Italian artist presents a selection of new and recent sculptures, videos, and films for his first exhibition in Switzerland. Marcon’s protagonists—a rapturously singing boy, a miniature marching band, and a murderous father—invite us into worlds that are at once poignant, absurd, and often a little uncanny.
