Images From an Site-Specific Exhibition in Gstaad You Need to See

If you ever find yourself in Gstaad, Switzerland between now and March 19th, then you’ll want to check out Elevation 1049: Avalanche, a site-specific exhibition curated by Olympia Scarry and Neville Wakefield. With support from The Luma Foundation, the exhibition features an international program of sculpture, performance, video and sound installations. Among the many installations, includes Sarah Morris’s Monarch, a 54-meter-long train clothed in her signature colors and geometric graphics and Douglas Gordon & Morgane Tschiember’s As close as you can for as long as it lastsa ring born from fire, smoke, and sound that obliquely references the history of yodeling.

 

If the likelihood of you heading to Gstaad is pretty slim, then check out some of our favorite images from this stunning exhibition.
