The art room 3: "One night with Mickry 3"
The artists write the following about the room: "We realise again and again how impressed, almost enamored visitors are towards our studio. The romantic view of the sweet life of an artist can be found in his or her studio. In this space the desire to let your creativity flow freely comes over you inevitably. Everything seems possible: saw, paint, transform, drill or carve. There are no limits to the creative urge. Young, as well as old people share the enthusiasm for our working space, whether they are art lovers or not. The creative potential, which is sleeping in each of us is gently shaken up. Our studio means everything to us. Over all those years it grew to what it is today, and tomorrow it will have changed again. It resembles a sculpture, where depth and content play the central roles. We thought it could be funny to lie in a bed as white as a flower, that reminds you of a canvas, and everything else, from the floor to the ceiling is like a huge paint box. Once your eyes got used to the many impressions, you can see more and more sculptures, which are entangled into the whole picture. The "parquet floor" out of compressed wood has been created especially for the hotel room, and is an exact copy of our studio floor."
The artists: Mickry 3
The artist group Mickry 3, consisting of Nina von Meiss, Christina Pfander and Dominique Vigne, has worked exclusively as a collective since its formation in 1998. In 2001 the artists celebrated their first success with the exhibition M3 supermarket. The space-filling installation included over 1,000 handmade products made of paper, tape and all kind of things that was immediately available. The offer ranged from a replacement heart to an instant boyfriend, you could mix yourself with water. Their work smartly undercut the topic of our consumer society, as well as the art market itself. The works were offered at dumping prices. The message was art for everyone.
In 2006, they grappled with renowned artists such as Rubens, Caravaggio and Vermeer. They took over image concepts and motifs and confronted them with their own work. The copying and interpreting is a recurring aspect of their work, whereat the focus lies on reinterpretation. The work of Mickry 3 have been continually developed over the years. The central themes of their entire work are humor and the crutial attitude towards society, whereat they are always careful not to take a dunning attitude.
Since 2006 the artists are member of the AZB (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Zürcher Bildhauer). This membership enabled the rent of the studio near the city boundary. The studio plays a central role in the development of the trio and is also the starting point of the most recent work in hotel Teufelhof.
