Let’s Play

Let’s Play is a project that aims to put a face on contemporary creativity in Switzerland. Since 2012, visual artists, architects and designers, all generations and linguistic regions considered, have been taking part in an unusual portrait session. Each participant receives a box of wood blocks of various shapes and has 30 minutes to create a free form, with the only constraint of using three pieces selected by the previous player. The result is then photographed and exhibited side by side with the creator. Through this series of diptych, visitors get to see how much the aesthetic of the compositions resembles the formal language developed by these personalities.
