Aw, for the love of triangle!

Spring has never been so far away when leaves start falling from the trees and birds migrate south, but wait, there comes Daniel Hunziker and brings: Geometry.

The artist does not merely present us with blow up versions of hexagonal decatrons and mutated cubes, but a real interpretation of space and a studied presentation of the effects of light and shadow on the work itself. Mysterious objects which seem to fail to correlate, raise enigmatic questions to the spectator who wants to grasp the meaning of the real life paralellepiped but has to complete investigating by following the clues brought by the triangle covered in metal rings.
True 'connoisseurs' (I still don't understand why you anglophones feel the need to incorporate misspelled french loan words into the sophisticated language) would soon realize that geometry itself is self-fufilling and needs no explanation.
"Nothing shows itself at once. To focus on the various layers, that we see unconsciously, is so exciting." (DH)
