Thierry Furger’s impressions, observations and inspirations of the ephemeral graffiti are reflected in his creative work. Thierry Furger’s new series entitled flüchtig will be exhibited at Kolly Gallery from 25th to 30th May 2020.
In his series flüchtig Furger reflects on the transience nature of train graffiti on various levels. The word flüchtig in german means, fugitive, volatile as well as transient. The current series was mainly inspired by his observations on private railway lines in Italy.
A first level of transience can be recognized in the tradition of graffiti itself. Within minutes a piece is applied. The time of the “performance” is therefore very short. In order to preserve his anonymity, a sprayer always distances himself as quickly as possible from the “scene of the crime” and is therefore “fugitive”.
