Yypfyffe (2018)

A collective experience, commissioned in relation to Basel’s own performative tradition, Fasnacht, is Johannes Willi’s Yypfyffe (2018), a project envisioned with the Basel Fasnacht clique “Die Unbaggene.” The artist presents a forest-like setting in which the theme and props he designed for the clique are inaugurated with specially built music instruments. This and other events taking place throughout the exhibition’s duration lead to its grand finale on February 18 and into the wee hours of February 19, when all of Basel turns off its lights at 4 am for the Morgestraich, the ritual beginning of carnival, thus connecting the exhibition to the broader city’s collective performance.
