A Husmann/Tschaeni artwork stares you in the face. Under the layers of pinks, greens and blues, you sense movement. As if it is watching your back. Suddenly, you feel yourself being drawn into
the art, losing focus. „We work backwards …“ greets you as you enter the gates. A small plaque reads: „A hell of positive energy with a small hint of hidden otherworldly darkness mixed with visual
poetry and deep sensitive natural beauty. A daily biological presence combined with absurd undefined monstrous fantasy.“ Whatever it means, you feel impelled to move into this otherworldly
place. Huge floating fluorescent orb-kites, perched on top of barely-there stilts, strut around you. Characters who seem to be built from the back-forward greet you, shake your hand. Fabric,
furniture and bodily cells float around in the air. Touching one of the cells, the landscape shifts sideways into flying oils, glitter, crayons. A voice is heard above the chaos: „Our canvas forces us
to think backwards … what’s painted can’t be painted over“. A feather enters your vision, and as it slowly transforms into an iron glove, you shift again. You now see people who live with cats, goats
and fish in an idyllic lake valley. They are making art, the stories of their daily life. The last chapter of their great grandmothers, the birth of kittens, the passing of their goat, fallen trees in the
neighbouring forest, the growing of their kids, the disappearing of childhood. Everything that surrounds them soaks into their art. Walking away, a little voice whispers, „welcome to our world“.
