CRYSTAL OF RESISTANCE BY THOMAS HIRSCHHORN at the swiss pavilion / the best show at the 2011 biennale which absolutely deserves to win!

The crystal stands for beauty itself. I am thinking of a child, a girl who finds her “own crysal” – perhaps her first – she finds it herself or receives it as a gift, and – for this girl – it’s th emost beautiful crystal, and to her, it will always remain the “most beautiful”! That’s why each crystal is for me the “most beautiful”. Thomas Hirschhorn
