28.10.2021 Impressions of the VIP ART DINNER on October 22nd 2021

This past Friday, four very different worlds came together: That of the visual arts, that of football, that of the culinary arts, and that of music. The location was the Fusion Factory, David Pflugi's huge art studio. A large number of guests was in attendance - including many living legends of Swiss football history like Gilbert Gress and Andy Egli - to enjoy not only the fascinating art of David Pflugi, but also a gripping Brazilian soul performance by Anissa Damali and her band. A wonderful dinner rounded off this very special evening.

24.07.2021 New works unveiled in Lucerne

A very special cultural experience was enjoyed by guests and visitors at the Hotel Schweizerhof in Lucerne from July to November 2021: In the lobby of this grand five-star hotel, built in 1845 and under protection as cultural heritage of national importance, two spectacular new sculptures by David Pflugi were on display.

The works "Courage" and "Night seeds" were created especially for this exhibition, and were unveiled on July 24th during an event in the presence of invited guests. The special guest of the evening was Walter Gagg (former technical director, FIFA). The evening was hosted by Susanne Hueber.

On most days, the Fusion Factory is bustling with life and activity. But during the coronavirus crisis, we were mostly unable to hold public events in the vast expanse of David Pflugi's art studio. That is why it was a very special pleasure to be able to open our doors again on July 10th. And of course, that was only the beginning: David's team is already working hard to prepare the next event... Stay tuned for more!

02.10.2020 Final goodbye: The funeral

Update from October 29th: In accordance with yesterday's new regulations from the Swiss government, the new coronavirus protection measures will be in place at the event. Due to this, the audience will be limited to 50 people. Please reserve a place by Friday, October 30th 4 PM, by telephone or SMS to +41 (0)79 552 82 68.

In October 2013, David relocated to Brazil for just over nine months. During this time, he created his greatest work to date: The eight metres wide sculpture "The Seeds of Victory", which was signed in July 2014 in Rio de Janeiro by all players of the football world cup finalists of that year, Germany and Argentina.

In July 2020, the sculpture was completely destroyed by a fire in the industrial estate where David's studio is situated. Now, David has decided to recreate the sculpture over the coming nine months.

Before the arrival of a new beginning, there must be closure of that which has passed. On October 31st, the remains of the sculpture – which took on the shape of a small child when viewed from one particular angle and was therefore often lovingly referred to as "the baby" – will be buried during a special ceremony. This performance is meant to be a symbolic coming to terms with the tragedy, also for all others who have been affected by it. It will take place under the open sky, in the ruins where great buildings once stood, their remains arranged into a garden of sculptures – works created by the fire.

All members of the public are invited to witness this unusual funeral, and to be part of this final goodbye.
