Rémy Zaugg

The first time I saw the work of Rémy Zaugg was his exhibition A Sheet of Paper at the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, organized by Rudi Fuchs in 1984 (with a beautiful catalogue designed by Walter Nikkels). After inviting him in 1996 for the project and exhibition Travaux Publics [Public Works] I met him during the installation of his exhibition The Work's Unfolding at the Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo, in 1996 to talk about his work and a print for this project.
Rémy Zaugg was known, beside his paintings and prints, for his works in public space. He worked in collaboration with the architects Herzog & de Meuron (who designed and renovated the Bankside Power Station into Tate Modern, London). Rémy Zaugg curated and installed the exhibition Herzog & de Meuron at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, 1995 and the architects built his studio in Pfastatt, France.
Rémy Zaugg died in 2005.
