The exhibition INVERSO moves away from a run-of-the mill narrative appeal, thereby nourishing an absolute desire to recount.
All of the contemplation takes on it’s full meaning in the work of the artists who mould the exhibition: Christian Gonzenbach, Éric Poitevin and Uwe Wittwer create a universe where it isn’t about the reproduction of something visible, but rather the souvenir of a perception and this by the emergence of souvenirs that wander over the sensitive surface of the mind.
The main concern is to go towards to a performativity of the image.
Inversely to the normal situation, the head-and-shoulders of Christian Gonzenbach appear to retreat in an ultimate tension, whereas the birds of Éric Poitevin, try in a mortal vertigo, to attain a liberty now gone. The watercolours of Uwe Wittwer subtly display brilliant sunshine that appears to exits only in the nights of our imagination.
