Paul Wiedmer. Iron. Forms. Energy
From 15 April to 28 May 2017
Hermann Geiger Cultural Foundation
Piazza Guerrazzi 32, Cecina (LI)
Open daily from 4 to 8 pm. Free admission
Opening: Saturday 15 April, 5 pm
The Swiss artist Paul Wiedmer explores the possibilities of synthesis between heavy industry products – cast iron and steel – and all things natural and vegetable. Everything is subject to the constant law of change, everything is moved by a profound harmony that the artist explores through the organic forms of the metal, and sometimes the use of fire and mechanical movement.
The exhibition Paul Wiedmer. Iron. Forms. Energy, from 15 April to 28 May at the Hermann Geiger Cultural Foundation, presents the series of the Objets boudlés, formed by twenty-six works completed between 1974 and 1976 with scrap metal, discovered and unearthed in the cantons of Switzerland with the help of a metal detector and assembled according to the place of origin. Also on show are Lava (2015) and the installation Stützen der Gesellschaft, created between 2011 and 2016 and inspired by Henrik Ibsen’s play, The Pillars of Society.
