Room (size: 19m²) with twin (two beds of 1m width - we can fix them together if needed) with shower/bath. Artful rooms along the art concept of the Teufelhof - wired up in Teufelhof standard. The rooms are accessible by elevator only (due to preservation of sites of historic interest).
The art room 5
On the plateau is the devil. Above the devil in the night sky, two figures stand out representing actual constellations. The winged bull acts as a symbol of Saint Luke, who is worshipped as the patron saint of all painters (artists). Next to him is the holy Genesius of Rome, who is regarded as the patron saint of all performing artists, with its typical attributes, the theatre masks and the stringed instrument. They both are the protectors of all representatives of those art forms, which are supported by the Teufelhof with the numerous art and theatre projects.
The artist: Andreas Mattle
After studying art history at the University of Basel and subsequent employment at the Kunstmuseum Basel as assistant to the director, he made the decision to focus on his own artistic work. His artistic work moves between the areas of painting and sculpture and tries to identify possibilities to combine the two techniques in an interaction.
Since 2012, he has been studying at the HGK Basel doing his Master of Arts in Fine Arts and is still pursuing his curatorial work in various projects.
Andreas Mattle lives and works in Basel. His two art rooms are inconspicuous in daylight but surprising in the dark. His painted figures glow softly as the light fades.
