The Swiss artist Zilla Leutenegger (1968) combines drawings with photography, sculpture and projections in her seemingly simple, but at the same time complexly composed installations and, in so doing, expands the two-dimensional image into the realms of space and movement. The ‘Apartment’ cycle – that has now been transferred to the Free State of Bavaria as a generous gift from the media holdings in the Goetz Collection– is now being presented for the first time in its final form in the Pinakothek der Moderne. ‘Apartment’, created between 2004 and 2007, comprises seven projections, each one devoted to a different room in a flat, such as the kitchen, bathroom, library and hallway. The sketchy drawings of the rooms and furnishings are lived in by the artist’s alter ego, Z, which we can watch repeatedly carrying out unspectacular chores or simply doing nothing.
