This first monographic book by Camillo Paravicini accompanies his solo exhibition HART, ABER FAIR (FIRM, BUT FAIR), which was held to coincide with the Chur Manor Art Prize at the Chur Museum of Fine Arts. One of Swiss art’s risk-takers in recent times, Camillo Paravicini is constantly on the search for possible answers to understand our present. This curiosity fuels a journey across uncertain terrain. Although the extraordinary craftsmanship and precision alone make Camillo Paravicini's works impressive, they are further brought to life by a humour-tinged philosophical questioning of what is considered true and certain.

In this first monograph, the most important works of recent years become testimonies to a conversation that sees the artist stepping into the ring with curator Damian Jurt — this time to be questioned as a questioner. Texts on individual aspects of his work by Jana Bruggmann, Gianni Jetzer, Claire Hoffmann, Aoife Rosenmeyer and Sabine Rusterholz Petko accompany the entertaining and enlightening conversation.
