Stitching Instead of Spraying
New Art for Züri West



“Less is enough” is written on the large advertising billboard in the pedestrian underpass of the the Hardbrücke train station in Zurich. With this plea for modesty, the new edition of 17ZWEI has started. The project, which was launched by the Zurich University of the Arts and Deutsche Bank in 2011, offers art students a high-profile forum for their work. Every day, thousands of passersby encounter the artwork on the 17 x 2 meter billboard, as it is located in the one of the most-frequented train stations in Switzerland. Moreover, the Hardbrücke station is the gateway to “Zuri-West.” In recent years, the former industrial district has transformed into a lively trendy area and has been the site of Deutsche Bank Switzerland headquarters since December 2011.

Nowadays, young international artists are invited to participate in 17ZWEI. One of them is Monika Drożyńska, who conceived Less is enough. The nostalgic letters and roses seem to recall “the good old days” but are taken from life today. She modeled her embroidery on graffiti found on the streets of Liverpool. Entitled Urban Embroidery, Drożyńska’s project transforms male-focused street art using a “female” handicraft technique and puts it back in public space. Among the other artists chosen for 17ZWEI are the Dutch video and performance artist Marieke Gelissen and the Israeli artist Idan Hayosh. For his installations he arranges chainsaws, engines, and generators into strictly geometrical formations. But the next artist to realize a concept for 17ZWEI will be Hugo Orlandini, a Cuban who lives in Barcelona. With his sculptures and installation, he addresses current social issues such as migration. He will present his work Shortcut N° 5 on October 17 at 5 pm.
