Highlights

Etienne Krähenbühl

Born in 1953 in Vevey (Switzerland), Etienne Krähenbühl is a sculptor interested
in the traces time leaves in the matter.

Situated between art and science, philosophy and poetry, his approach is “on the lookout for natural phenomena, tuned to the great existential questions and in search of a poetic sublimation of the matter” (F. Jaunin).

Georg Baselitz

Born in 1938 in Deutschbaselitz, municipality from which he took his artist name, Georg Baselitz, born Hans-Georg Kern, is a painter, a sculptor and an engraver. His figurative work is characterized by the display of “upside down” paintings. His sculpture, most often on wood, is made with a chainsaw.

Georg Baselitz deconstructs matter to extract life from it: “I think that sculpture is a more direct path than painting to reach the same result, for sculpture is more primitive, rougher and less reserved, which painting sometimes is”.

Aboriginal art is the most ancient form of continued artistic expression in the world, going back almost 60,000 years.

The artworks are visual representations of lyrical poetry passed down from generation to generation. Each group has its own symbols and certain emblematic ones are shared by several groups.

When passing on the stories, traditions and cultural beliefs, Aboriginal artists use a range of mediums to express themselves such as painting, sculpture, engraving, pottery, weaving and, more recently, photography.

These pieces serve as a permanent testimony to the legends and stories that took place during the Dreamtime, connecting Man to Earth and our ancestors to the present.
