For the inaugural event in Kunstverein München’s new Autumn series k.m codex, artist’s Veit Laurent Kurz and Julien Nguyen have created a special window display dedicated to their fictitious character, the crypto-polymath Vetjylien N’gyrz.

An aged rock wall is installed as the backdrop for materials relating to the character’s early life as a botanist on the cusp of a formative moment that leads him to perverse thought and experimentation. Fashioned in the style of a grotto or early Christian catacomb, the display is infused with rusty tech, scepters and a veneration icon of a young N’gyrz.

and of course I walked away with a small present by Kunstverein


a beautiful and warm evening
