This first fall show, curated by Samuel Gross, references late artist Rémy Zaugg’s ICH, ICH SEHE DICH (I, I SEE YOU), a work from 1998. Bringing together diverse positions by eight Swiss artists of different generations, it offers various takes on the underlining thought of the work of this renown painter—primarily known as a conceptual artist—and a small glimpse on the history of painting.
Rémy Zaugg (ex-fellow Istituto Svizzero Roma, 1943-2005) presents to the public an important body of work from the late 70’s early 80’s: an installation made-up of eight paintings.
Two series of photographs—one of the two unprecedented—related to Hannah Villiger’s (ex-fellowIstituto Svizzero Roma, 1951-1997) performances at Istituto Svizzero, Rome during her stay, will be hanged in the space.
In the next room, new corpuses of paintings by artists Renée Levy (1960)and Emil Michael Klein (1982).
Julie Monot (1978), instead, will present to the Roman public a new version with further developments of a performance and sculpture.
Ramaya Tegegne (1985), first time showing in Italy, will show an important set of works related to her practice of quoting other artists.
Also showing for the first time in Italy: Yoan Mudry (1990). This young artist will re-enact his installation of works presented at Union Pacific in London.
Niels Trannois’s (1976) work will inhabit the rooms of Villa Maraini too; for this occasion, he is producing a site-specific installation
Artists Yarisal & Kublitz live and work in Berlin. Istituto Svizzero has commissioned them a new piece of artwork that will be installed in the patio of the dipendenza. For this occasion, they have created an artwork that resembles a gateway. The installation will open on the same night of “ICH, ICH SEHE DICH” and will viewable to the public for a year.
