Galerie Gilla Lörcher | Contemporary Art is very pleased to present FABRIC, a group show with French and Swiss artists, curated by John Cornu.
The exhibition FABRIC brings together a choice of works by artists belonging to different generations. All the pieces on display are concerned with reconsidering the canvas as a medium through absolving themselves from the constraints of the frame. This involves, among other things, escaping from the rectangular pollution Roland Barthes wrote about, leaving behind the rigidity of the canvas frame, and generally putting this perspective-generating apparatus under examination.
From depositions to tensions, suspensions, casts, collages, and juxtapositions, the exhibition offers up different variations on this artistic archetype that is the canvas as a modality for showing. The works take possession of their site, unfold and adapt to the different spaces, embody themselves from the floor to the ceiling in the heart of the host architecture in order to create a new format: that of the exhibition.
