Group Show at the Kunsthalle Lucerne from June 5 until July 11, 2010.

In Previously on … Lustenberger works with three different genres: the portrait, the still life and the tableau vivant. She references Baroque paintings by Caravaggio, Artemisia, Jan de Bray, Rembrandt and many more. Previously on … feels like the Baroque meets the present time. The modern soap opera draws from Baroque sources. Due to longstanding experience with TV-series the viewer will guess and make up stories that lie behind the images. Gazes, gestures and symbols inherent in portraits, tableaux vivants and still lives give a hint of an insight to a clan or some part of society.

The photographs provoke the viewer to visualize the single episodes and to cross reference among the family members.
