Video series – Experience art

Swiss Post has countless works of art recounting fascinating stories. In our video series, we take you on a short art journey – and get up close with the camera.

Experience art in a different, surprising and innovative way

To mark the opening ceremony of the new station area in Delémont, two new buildings have been constructed for Swiss Post as part of a Real Estate Services project. The official opening was followed by an art performance by the internationally renowned artist Victorine MüllerTarget not accessible. The artist from Grenchen is known throughout the world for her ethereal performances – one of which was staged at the new “Place de la Poste”, right in front the new buildings.

Victorine Müller created a new inflated structure especially for Swiss Post, marking a new milestone in her artistic career. It was the first time that she had created a coloured object, in contrast to the transparent PVC objects she is known for. She also positioned the work on an oval mirrored surface that reflected the surrounding architecture, complemented the object ingeniously and pulled the piece together into a complete work of art. Using dominating horizontal and vertical shapes, Victorine created a towering wing reminiscent of Hermes, the messenger of the gods: a nod here to Swiss Post. The ephemeral performance adds an innovative edge and reflects Swiss Post’s fresh focus on its commitment to art.
