Peter Hächler: Metamorphosen

Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Selnaustrasse 25, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland

Peter Hächler (1922 in Lenzburg – 1999 in Lenzburg) was one of Switzerland’s most radical sculptors, particularly with regard to his language of forms. Since the 1980s, he used only a few basic modules: the rhombic cube, the rhombohedron, three-sided and four-sided prisms, or ruled surface bodies constructed by rotation. Without a doubt, Hächler can be described as a constructivist-concrete sculptor, who varied his exact, standardized basic elements playfully and intuitively without being dogmatic. He started his career in art by studying architecture, eventually graduating in sculpture. Throughout his life, Hächler maintained a strong attachment to architecture and realized numerous percent-for-art projects, as well as site-specific sculptures.

The exhibition at Museum Haus Konstruktiv juxtaposes this artist’s impressive oeuvre with a reconstruction of his Lenzburg studio, which has been preserved to this day, and which is being specially reassembled in the museum for the exhibition. Percent-for-art works that have been photographically documented, as well as a selection of his sculptures, shall also be on display.
