Julian Vogel


“Swiss artist Julian Vogel presents an installation in the CCS exhibition hall, in which he reveals the different facets of a set of small forms and installations composed of ceramic diabolos. Autonomous pieces of different sizes are in dialogue with each other. Relying on the principles of construction / destruction, Julian Vogel transcribes in his artistic and ephemeral acts, the vulnerability of bodies and human relationships.”
- SPRING Festival
