Swiss Cultural Centre
12 Sep → 14 Nov 2021
From Tuesday to Sunday 1 pm to 7 pm. Closed Monday.
Two sister artists, a four-handed work, questioning a crucial period of childhood. More and more, the world is an accumulation of images, of all forms, all origins, all subjects. Claudia and Julia Müller, for their part, have decided to reactivate these pre-existing images. Using vast archives, they search for exchanges of glances, power relations, configurations of relationships and stage what they notice in large wall drawings. These representations reveal familiar or mysterious situations, reflections of what these images say to them. The exhibition at the Swiss Cultural Centre focuses on puberty, on this period of transformation in adolescence through portraits drawn with four hands especially for the installation. The Müller sisters mix their own experiences with their observations and analyses. Mirrors, covered with drawings and collages, reflect murals and people in space, multiplying reflections of the self. In this way, they transcribe the fragile in-between of adolescence, between research and transformation, between image in the making and finished image.
