Nicolas Party’s playful and colorful creations – exclusively made for the Magritte Museum – will turn the place upside down!
Today Nicolas Party, born in Lausanne in 1980, is recognized for his electrically sensitive pastels that feed on a make-believe world that is at once gentle and ironic. At the Museum, he engage in dialogue with René Magritte, a painter who has made a deep and lastingly impression on him. Looking at these pastels with their new sensuality, the two artists meet in certain aspects. First among these is a striking sense of mystery and the resurgence of the marvellous. Both artists are keen to show the "beautiful side of things" as well as to re-enchant an over-morose and utilitarian reality.
Next to more than twenty pastels and sculptures, Nicolas Party also created a large mural in context of this project.
