In the Galerie Triebold (Basel), a large-scale wolf was painted on one of the gallery walls. A television monitor was built into the same wall, on which popular TV programmes where shown, from news to soap operas.⠀

The project Lupus Viator (latin: wolf walking) began as a series of monumental painted installations of an ephemeral nature and realised in situ. Later the project continued to evolve over a period of 7 years. It travelled to 7 different countries worldwide. ⠀
Taking into consideration its extensive duration, as well as its territorial movements, from country to country, Lupus Viator can be understood almost like a mythical pilgrimage, which covers the trails and places, where wolves have formerly roamed in abundance, before the species has widely become extinct.⠀

Wall painting, installation and sculpture⠀⁣
The windows and beams of the gallery were covered with fabric, mattresses, wardrobes, chairs and other objects, as if a tornado had sucked everything into the gallery space. One of the gallery walls showed a large-scale mural of an elephant, tilted horizontally. All concentration was focused on the trumpeting of this elephant, which has not got a floor to stand on anymore.⠀⁣

The project Marcha de Elefantes, is a metaphor of walking: the walk of all the wild animals and people which have lost their habitat and homes, uprooted and forced to leave their place of origin.⠀⁣
The work began as a series of large-scale murals, but later the wall-based work was complemented by sculptures, videos and also performances.⠀⁣
