Delicate Pleasures (Zarte Freuden)
Fasanenschloessen / Little Pheasant Castle
30/04/2022 - 30/10/2022
For summer 2022, Rebecca Stevenson will install sculptural works in response to the unique setting of the Moritzburg Fasanenschloessen. Her sculptures will reflect the palace's history both as a hunting lodge and a place for feasting and celebration. The Rococo fascination with novelty and the exotic, exemplified in the Fasanenschloessen’s chinoiserie style and unusual wall coverings (feathers, straw and pearls) finds a contemporary correspondence in Stevenson’s work.

'Artists' Conquest': Interventions by Margret Eicher, Luzia Simons, Rebecca Stevenson and Myriam Thyes.
Four contemporary artists respond to the historic interiors of Pillnitz Palace, renowned for its playful combination of baroque and chinoiserie style, as well as in the collections of the Museum of Applied Arts. Taking an approach that is at once affectionate, ironic, provocative and thoughtful, 'Artists’ Conquest’ aims to open up new ways of seeing and thinking and to challenge preconceptions about historic spaces. The artists’ interventions sharpen the mind and re-focus the vision, generating a new perspective on familiar forms.
