Rhonda Weppler & Trevor Mahovsky: Midnight Star Market

Light Installation

In the spirit of events like Basel’s Fasnacht, Rhonda Weppler and Trevor Mahovsky have created a corner store in the form of a lantern. Hundreds of lanterns, laboriously assembled by the artists, represent a cornucopia of products and a rainbow of flavors, as well as illuminated shop signs. The store will gradually darken, as visitors select free lanterns to carry away.
