An Exhibition within the Exhibition

The temporary exhibition inspired by the world of the Bosco Gurin legends is installed within the permanent exhibition in the museum’s main building. Each object created by the two artists finds the ideal location between the objects of everyday use that tell the traditional life of the past. The «exhibition within the exhibition» reminds us of how labile the borderline between reality and fantasy, between the apprehensible and the elusive is. In the past times, the fusion between these two worlds was an integrating part of everyday life and a natural element of it. It constituted the bridge between generations: during centuries, the tales and legends were passed down orally from generation to generation.
The spaces of the permanent exhibition offer the ideal frame for the artistic objects that are harmoniously and discreetly integrated into the museum’s context. Since nowadays the use of many of the exposed ancient objects is not known any more, it is not easy to distinguish them from Kurt Hutterli’s creations. The figures created by Elisabeth Flueler-Tomamichel, instead, are very well recognizable, but because of their great expressive power they could easily be taken for living beings that invite to a dialogue.
A visit to the museum during the period of this very special exhibition is worthwhile and offers not only the possibility to experience ethnography, but also to plunge into the past in a magically pleasant way.
