Gelbe Kristalle

A participatory installation centred around chicory, espace libre, Biel/Bienne, 2023

by Piero Good

espace libre has been transformed into a dark cave into which visitors can enter with a headlamp and sound accompaniment to immerse themselves in a cluster of yellow crystals that grow slowly and silently in the damp darkness.

For the duration of the exhibition, the chicory continue to grow in the space and are regularly cared for by the artist and curators. The exhibition culminates in a communal harvest and meal.
