A Fragile Balance


How do we keep our bearings in a world that’s changing at a dizzying speed? Where will we find new points of reference? What, ultimately, does our balance depend on?

As part of our Year of Mental Health (2022–2023), we have given carte blanche to three contemporary Swiss artists: Denise Bertschi, Nicolas Cilins and Nina Haab. Their unique productions, together with a sculpture by Olafur Eliasson, explore our physical and mental limits and make us mindful of our inner balance.

A FRAGILE BALANCE is an invitation to become fully present in the moment through a process of discovering, feeling, doing and letting go.
