Several exhibitions are currently in preparation and will be announced soon.
W A V E S II took place from December 2019 until January 2020, in a exhibition space within the Grand Bellevue Gstaad, Switzerland.
W A V E S II paid tribute to different artistic means of expression and suggested a broad interpretation of its main subject, Virginia Woolf’s interludes from her novel „The Waves“ (1931), which retrace the progress of the sun through a single day in an uninhabited seascape. Through her perception of the intensity of changing shore, Woolf represents the boundaries between humans and the natural world as porous, framing sensations and thoughts.
The exhibition captured these sensations and thoughts through art installations and art pieces by a
variety of artists. Artworks by Anthony Bannwart alongside established artists Lucio Fontana, Hafis
Bertschinger, Mario Giacomelli, Robert Kushner, Marc Tobey, Richard Wright and Zurab Tsereteli. This exhibition was curated by Geneva art historian and curator Isabelle de le Court.
