After Merry Crisis and a Happy New Fear (Again) (14.12.2018 – 20.01.2019), presented at la rada, Locarno, Luka Rayski and Augustin Rebetez are together again for the second chapter of this double solo-show: Nyarlathotep.
The title of the exhibition refers to Nyarlathotep, a fictional character in H.P Lovecraft’s literary mythology, a deity bringing chaos. Reflecting on this figure, the two artists are invited to invest the rooms with their works, encompassing video, drawings, paintings and photography.
The exhibition Nyarlathotep asks the visitors to interrogate themselves about the tempest around and inside themselves – it is indeed in the scary and exciting whirl of chaos that we might catch a glimpse of truth.
