AllArt – Moving Art by Martin Solèr & Roswitha Lüthi
Martin and Roswitha create mad, spacy art objects called AllArtgenossen. After a few swing by manoeuvres some of their spectacular objects, equipped with various apparatuses, softly touched down in the Garden Villa where they found a new home. From their final mission they send out regular signals of cosmic joy.
For many years, with a lot of brains, heart and hands, Martin and Roswitha created freaky moving machine performances out of previously used devices and throw away gear which they showcase in groovy venues.
In the imaginative installations the spectators discover familiar utensils, which interact with their every day life and also the immediate environment. Thus, the art becomes extremely vivid and the spectators are guided back to their own perception. This sensation is further emphasized by Martin’s and Roswitha’s approach which is similar to how we were guided as children: nothing is planned, but spontaneously inspired by the environmemt and the discoveries in our acting and being.
