Flux Laboratory left its Schiffbauplatz site, which will be demolished to make way for a new property development.
In response to this premature departure, Flux Laboratory has given artist Roman Signer carte blanche to stage a final in-situ performance.
An exhibition based on this performance has been held until 26 March, accompanied by various events.

Roman Signer's work is characterised by constant experimentation that extends beyond his famous  explosions and controlled destructions.
With his "actions", which he calls "temporal sculptures", Signer is concerned with sequences of time in space and minute details that evoke matter being transformed, mutated. The temporal dimension of his work thus becomes a metaphor for change.

"I wish I could see in slow motion"
Roman Signer

His work has been exhibited at the Venice Biennale, Documenta, Skulptur Projekte Münster and, recently, at KINDL (Berlin), Kunstmuseum St. Gallen and Bund 18 (Shanghai). He has also been the subject of a documentary, "Signers Koffer", by Peter Liechti.
