Installation artist work “It means to think about the world’s problems without falling asleep”
(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Jeon Myung-hoon = A hotel room in Saion, Valais, southern Switzerland.
It is equipped with a double bed, a side table, and a stand, and the ‘Butler Service’, a personalized customer service that can only be found in high-end hotels, is also provided. The cost of a night’s stay, including breakfast, is $337 (440,000 won).
It sounds like a decent hotel, but there is a crucial problem. This hotel has neither walls nor ceilings. Privacy protection is a no-brainer. Even right next to the bed is a gas station, and cars are running fast on the street in front.
The ‘Hotel’ in question is the work of the Swiss-born twin installation artists, the Ricklein brothers, and the title is ‘0-Star Hotel’.
Twin brother Frank Riclin told Reuters on the 23rd (local time) about this work, “It is not for the purpose of sleeping. It is important to show the situation of the world. It’s like making a statement.”
“In a nutshell, now is not the time to sleep,” his brother Patrick urged.
Reuters explained that the intention of the writers is to get a good night’s sleep in a noisy roadside bed and think about climate change, war, and the harm that mankind has done to the earth.
It is said that the ‘0-star hotel’ will actually operate from the 1st of next month to the 18th of September. In addition to the vacant lot next to the main station, the same work was installed in places with outstanding rural scenery, such as vineyards and hills, the news agency added.
