LUCAS HERZIG and often means always. Manor Art Prize Ticino 2022

Press kit

MASI Lugano presents “and often means always”, a solo show by the artist Lucas Herzig (Zurich, 1988), winner of the Ticino edition of the 2022 Manor Art Prize Ticino 2022.

Herzig’s show presents a selection of new works including installations, compositions of found objects, video, drawings, sculptures and bas-reliefs – all realised for the occasion. Each exhibition room has been staged in detail by the artist. Herzig’s works play with our perception to encourage us to go beyond an immediate, surface reading, and reflect on the differences between appearance and reality, and the inevitably subjective nature of interpretation.
