ALBERTO GIACOMETTI & ALI CHERRI
Sharing with Giacometti a special interest in the representation of the human head, the artist explores the notion of “envisagement”, a term referring to both the act of envisaging something and the evocation of the face (visage). This double meaning finds a particularly striking echo in the sculptures and paintings of Giacometti in which the human face is the motif of a relentless search as much as a creation in the making. An original and creative scenography, specially designed for this exhibition, offers a new interpretation of the space. This exhibition will display new pieces by Ali Cherri, most of them specially created for this show. These original works will be presented alongside a rich selection of paintings, sculptures and drawings by Alberto Giacometti from the collection of the Fondation.
