Luca Frei’s work undermines the boundaries between fine and applied arts and design, bringing together different art forms such as craft, sculpture, installation, performance, as well as exhibition and graphic design. Important threads running through his multifaceted practice are how artworks and bodies cohabit within an exhibition space, and the critical and creative potential this encounter can generate.
Frei has had solo exhibitions at, among others, Malmö Konsthall (2020); Kunsthaus Glarus (2013); Bonner Kunstverein, Bonn (2012); Museo Cantonale d’Arte, Lugano (2010); and Lunds Konsthall (2008). Group exhibitions include Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; Moderna Museet, Malmö/Stockholm, The National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto; Centre Pompidou, Paris and Museum of Modern Art, Antwerp. Recent projects include the exhibition design for the avant-garde collection at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter in Oslo, and graphic design for the monograph The Otolith Group: Xenogenesis (2021).
