ABOUT THE ARTISTS


Karin Wälchli and Guido Reichlin have been working together in Zurich under the project name of Chalet5 since 1995. In the past twenty years they produced an extraordinarily wide-ranged oeuvre which illustrates their lively interest in ornamental forms occurring in the everyday life of different countries, cultures, and contexts and which involves a differentiated transformation into a great variety of artistic media.

Seit 1995 arbeiten Karin Wälchli und Guido Reichlin in Zürich unter dem Projektnamen
Chalet5 zusammen. In den vergangenen zwanzig Jahren entstand ein ausserordentlich breit gefächertes Werk, das ein lebhaftes Interesse an ornamentalen Erscheinungsformen im Alltag verschiedener Länder, Kulturen und Kontexte zeigt und eine differenzierte Transformation in verschiedenste künstlerische Medien vornimmt.
