ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS – WITH TIME ACROBATICS AND DOUBLE MAGICAL ENCOUNTERS
Thursday, May 25, 2023 – 6 p.m
Konzepthaus Laboratorium, Berntorgasse 16, 3600 Thun
Exhibition until July 1, 2023
Ermanno Cristini pays his debts! What profoundly shaped his professional and personal life were his magical encounters with Bruno Munari and Max Huber.
Cristini shows objects and images that have emerged from learned methodical attitudes, dispositions and a perspective that is geared towards a constant reversal of the gaze, in which what is said gains value precisely because it is contradicted – a kind of mental gymnastics .
Quotation Ermanno Cristini: “When I think of this time today, I think of the Walser walk, where you marvel at the encounters and in the end it was no longer me, but someone else, but precisely because of that more me! (Robert Walser, The walk).”
