Comenius Roethlisberger's Sweetest Invitation. Cocaine and Sugar Luxury Brand Logos.




Above: Artist Comenius Roethlisberger, b. 1971




There seems to be no end to artists combining fashionista with drugs. In addition to Tobias Wong and Big Game's Commentary on society's obsession with wealth and debauchery, provocative Swiss artist Comenius Roethlisberger has recently been exhibiting his latest commentary on luxury and society, “Dearest constellation, sweetest invitation” at Colette in France as well as at the Saatchi Galleries. The installation merges famous luxury brand logos with sugar powder and cocaine, all presented in clear polyester resin boxes, lit from below.
