David Pflugis riesiges Atelier in Laufen, die Fusion Factory, ist bereits seit Jahren die wohl grösste unabhängige Kulturstätte in der Nordwestschweiz. Auf über 3000 m2 sind hunderte von faszinierenden Werken zu sehen, vom kleinen Bijou bis zur raumfüllenden Skulptur – und tagtäglich entsteht Neues.

Doch damit nicht genug: Mit grossem Aufwand werden dieser Tage die grossen Hallen umgebaut und erweitert, damit die Fusion Factory auch als Schauplatz grösserer Konzerte dienen kann. Neu entsteht auch ein exklusiver VIP-Bereich, in dem an Anlässen Kulinarik auf hohem Niveau angeboten wird. Und ein neues Beleuchtungskonzept sorgt dafür, dass Kunst in noch eindrücklicherem Umfeld als zuvor zu sehen sein wird.

All dies wird am 22. Oktober erstmals zu erleben sein – anlässlich eines Konzerts der Brazilian Soul-Sängerin Anissa Damali und ihrer Band. Man darf sich auf einen musikalischen Leckerbissen freuen: Mit ihren Auftritten begeisterte Anissa Damali bereits Kritiker und Publikum in aller Welt!

Selbstverständlich werden auch spannende neue Werke von David Pflugi gezeigt. Unseren VIP-Gästen bieten wir ausserdem eine persönliche Führung durch diese einzigartige Welt der Kunst an, sowie ein edles Dinner in der exklusiven neuen VIP-Lounge, gezaubert durch das Team des Schlosshof Dornach. Und an der Bar wartet eine reichhaltige Auswahl von Drinks und Cocktails auf Sie.

24.07.2021 New works unveiled in Lucerne

A very special cultural experience is currently being enjoyed by guests and visitors at the Hotel Schweizerhof in Lucerne: 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 are 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.

A third sculpture is in preparation and will also be presented at the Hotel Schweizerhof.

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.
