Vernissage of the 41st Exhibition with works by Werner Zemp at foryouandyourcustomers Zurich
The team of foryouandyourcustomers Zurich, Werner Zemp and Guido Baumgartner are looking forward to seeing you!
We look forward to welcoming you to the 41st exhibition of foryouandyourcustomers to present the works of sculptor and artist Werner Zemp at the location in Zurich. The date of the opening of the exhibition has not yet been determined, and we will announce it at a later point in time. The introductory speech to the works will be held by curator and graphic designer Guido Baumgartner.
Thoroughly in the spirit of concrete art, Werner Zemp draws on the potential of geometric forms with his objects. The circle is the archetypal harmonious form, but is also an invitation to play: objects that can be rolled and that can be assembled in different ways make it possible to experience the transformation from surface to space or from the straight to the round. The search for technical perfection in combination with aesthetic effect has moved Werner Zemp throughout his life. For decades, he worked in product design for industrial production. As a designer, he created award-winning everyday objects such as coffee machines, office furniture and information systems. His Abfallhai waste bin conquered numerous cities in Europe and was included in the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich’s collection. Werner Zemp has been living and working in the mountain village of Amden above Lake Walen since 2008. Free from the need to make something useful, he creates experimental objects and large-scale sculptures there.
