Luca Frei: The Fifth Business 
The expression Fifth Business refers to a kind of character in classical drama who is neither the hero, the confidant, the rival nor the villain. Although he plays only a supporting role, he brings a key element into the plot. This term drawn out of literary theory assumes a central role in Robertson Davies’ eponymous novel, to which Luca Frei (*1976, Lugano) refers in the title of his show. On the occasion of his first solo presentation in Germany, Frei shows sculptures and installations that orchestrate the space architecturally and, among other things, brings a bronze pineapple and hourglasses together.
