Since 2004, when Zilla Leutenegger (Switzerland, 1968) began her series of video installations based on the different spaces that make up a home, the artist has developed several more, which will be completed in the coming days of September 2023 with Spiral stair to planta1.Object, video projection and sound.



The project refers to planta1’s first space in Madrid, located on the first floor of an industrial warehouse building, which the organisation continues to maintain, although it is now located in a street-level space in the Carabanchel district of Madrid.

Continuing with his usual scenes in which reverie and imagination play an overriding role, Zilla suggests that we imagine that the exhibition space has become a kind of duplex apartment in which a person lives, whose shadow we can discover by going up and down the spiral staircase that leads from the first floor to street level.

A study in movement that speaks of the constants in Zilla’s work since the beginning of his career: his interest in spaces, the relationships that people have with these spaces and the light, both natural and artificial, that unfolds its often-magical effects on these spaces and people.



Since the beginning of his career, the axis of his artistic production has been the reflection on space, the person in relation to the environment and the relationship between space and light. His drawings emerge from the two-dimensional surface and merge with sculptures and video projections in installations.

He has had solo exhibitions at the Bündner Kunstmuseum Chur (2021); L'Abbatiale, Bellelay (2019); the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich (2015); Centro de Arte Caja Burgos CAB, Burgos (2014); among others. Major group exhibitions include Fly me to the MoonKunsthaus Zürich and Museum der Moderne, Salzburg (2019); Interval in SpaceOsage Art Foundation, Hong Kong (2017) and Sydney Biennial (2014). His works are represented in numerous collections, including Museum Kunstpalast, Düsseldorf, FRAC Lorraine, Metz and Kunstmuseum Basel.
