A Californian country house rises in the Swiss Alps; it is made of mirrors, to reflect the beauty of the landscape and the change of seasons.
The installation is called “Mirage Gstaad” and it is the third one of a series of works by artist Doug Aitken. The first one (2017) was placed in Palm Springs, California, and later moved to an old Detroit bank (2018). This time, it will remain in the Swiss mountains for two years so it can interact with the environment, in addition to being part of Elevation 1049: Frequencies, initiative that gathers international artists both visual and interpretative, to establish a dialogue between Mirage Gstaad’s semi-permanent structure and the ephemeral art of performance. Its opening had place from February 1st through the 3rd, 2019.
