Last Night's Vernissage

  • March 11, 2017

Last night, March 10, was the vernissage of the new exhibition of "Teatime for a Universe" in the gallery sam scherrer contemporary. Lawrence Grimm (with a striped pullover on the foto) explained the "Butterfly Wall" to the numerous audience, whereas not only the frames are mirrored on the right and left, but also the themes, e.g. if there's a cat-cartoon on the right, there's also one one on the left in the same distance from the center... (however, it's unclear if these cats know each other).
