Vanessa is one of the sculptures making up part of the “Art and the City” exhibition in Zurich www.artandthecity.ch/which runs till 23rd September. The conceptual artist Alex Hanimann from St. Gallen provides one of the most eye-catching works of the exhibition with this monumental sculpture made of chrome steel. Vanessa was originally intended for the inner courtyard of a high school in Heerbrugg, but since the building has not yet been completed, the sculpture is temporarily located at the Steinfelsplatz.
