LIBERTAS LIBERTAS

An actual real 5 cents swiss coin from 1984 has been scanned in 3D to produce those sculptural elements.

This work commissioned by Josiane Imhalsy and Madeleine Schuppli for Pro Helvetia is installed for two years on the ancient building portal at Hirschengrabe in Zurich.

It has been crafted by a crew of fine artists in collaboration with TMF to obtain two giant tossing coins revolving in the wind. The figure appearing on the smallest Swiss coin is « Libertas » and this artwork stands for the actions made inside this building, promoting artists and generating diversity in conjunction with the Helvetic Confederation administration.
