About the product

Central to the themes of the Swiss artist Hannes Schüpbach are the moments from which art is created. With his latest work, “Explosion of Words”, a cinematographic photo installation extending frieze-like over 24 metres, he responds to the lived spaces of the poet and language activist Stephen Watts, who is based in London and works between extensive research on poetry and his own contributions as a poet to the ongoing “explosion of words”. As a part of this project, Hannes Schüpbach has translated a selection of Stephen Watts’ poetry into German.

Accompanies exhibitions at Nunnery Gallery, Bow Arts (London) and Strauhof (Zürich), in 2021.
