HELL RAISERS

Curated by Stefano Pult

John Copeland, Drew Heitzler, Frank John Aaron, Wes Lang, Olivier Mosset, Steven Parrino, Jeffrey Schad, Vincent Szarek

Exhibition from june 20th to july 28th 2012

A Ford Pick up, a 66 Pan/Shovel, a 2004 Custom (Jeffrey), a 69 Triumph (Vince), a 64 El Camino, a 65 Bel Air (painted by Vince), a 62 Duo Glide, a Comet (was Steve Mc Queen’s), a 2000 Special Construction (all, OM), a 1969 Harley, a 2003 Dyna (Wes), a 59 Pan, a 62 Pan, a 65 Pan (John Copeland), a 68 Sportster (Drew) and two red Jettas (Vince and Aaron), Steven had a Sportster and a Superglide.

It is because of these vehicles that these artists know each other and that we have this exhibition in Zurich.

Of course there is the biker culture, the art world, the beer, etc.

As hell goes, they say: “better to reign in hell, than…”

In a way, this is also an homage to Steven Parrino (who had another homage at the Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, “Born to be wild”, 2009).

Because Steven is not around us anymore, we have this show, seven Samurais, the magnificent seven. Thanks for coming.
