In autumn 2019, the group exhibition "Wo die Milane kreisen" was held in the interior and exterior of the former clothing factory in Ganterschwil. In the site-specific intervention "Nexus Bos Taurus" Eva Wandeler turned cows into performers. For cows, horns are means of communication and insignia of rank and are decisive for their social behaviour. For 26 days, the fourteen cows of farmer Xaver Amman wore abstracted "horn balls" and were tracked by GPS to record and visualize the herd's movement routes and their network of relationships. Together they formed a constantly changing sculptural structure and in the end a picture, a painting, was created by the cows.
