Zilla Leutenegger combines drawings, objects and video projections into site-related installations. Her works are about the representation of inner worlds, psychological dispositions, desires, childhood dreams. In these, the artist herself always acts as the sole protagonist.

In "Corridor", a wooden staircase leads up to the wall, where it morphs into a drawing that continues up the wall, creating the illusion that it ascends through the ceiling. Avatar "Zilla" sits calmly below the staircase. Lost in thought, she appears to be shut off from the world. The androgynous figure is a video projection of the artist's computer-animated drawings. Leutenegger underscores the meditative nature of the installation with a song she has composed herself. She sings of her personal wishes and ends with the refrain “perfectament bé; perfectly happy”.
