Antoine Boulder-Shaped Cabin in Swiss Alps

Dec 30, 2014

Category: Living

To say someone “crawled out from under a rock,” is surely to slight their character. But to say someone “crawled out from a cabin disguised as giant boulder,” well, that can only mean this creation in the Swiss Alps, commissioned by the Verbier 3-D Foundation, an artists’ residency in Switzerland. It has a name too: Antoine.

Antoine gets its name from the main character in Derborence, a Charles-Ferdinand Ramuz novel in which the main guy survives seven weeks under rocks. Inside the cabin there seems to be enough room for a sit-down meal and perhaps reading by skylight, but since the cabin is part of an exhibition (Mutations: Contemporary Sculpture in Context, which runs through July 5, 2016), we suggest admiring Antoine as a piece of art and not an actual place to stay.
