Annemarie von Matt - Je ne m'ennuie jamais, on m'ennuie
Centre culturel suisse
32 - 38 Rue des Francs Bourgeois
Annemarie von Matt, a prolific yet little known artist, is presented in Paris for the first time ever outside her native Switzerland. She is accompanied in this exhibition by nine contemporary artists and authors who are invited to explore and interrogate her life and work. Her exuberant practice encompassed painting, drawing, sculpture, applied arts, assemblage, photography, self mise-en-scène, and an obsession with writing. Propelled by a playful approach to language, her voice is full of humour yet honed, too, by a critical awareness of the constraints of conservative society; it speaks of her urge to flout the social and artistic conventions of her day, of her need for uninhibited self-expression.
