Current exhibitions

Simone Holliger. Wasting My Breath

-
In the exhibition space, the abstract shapes become architectural and anthropomorphic figures. Two sculptures coexist, at the same time independent and yet linked by a sinuous bond. The installation evokes the intimate question of the couple: what space is there for oneself, what is the relationship to the other, what belongs to us? She overturns the socially standardised representations of it as an ideal and considers what is perceived, accepted or obligatory.

Stéphane Zaech. Nefertiti

-
The exhibition retraces the last ten years of Stéphane Zaech's painting. Since 1986, his work, which draws on art history and literary allusions, has become increasingly freer. He paints colour, the joy of the paintbrush etching the canvas, the joy of the cloud etching the sky. He paints today's world with the techniques of the old masters. Without lengthy discourses on art, Zaech makes light of references and of reality to simply show painting itself, both as work and as play.
