Exhibition “Markus Raetz | Le reflet des mots”

Le langage est l’un des trois cœurs de l’œuvre de Markus Raetz (1941–2020). Son art ne cesse d’appréhender les mots, d’en explorer les relations croisées au sein de plusieurs parlers et de s’incarner dans l’univers de formes visuelles parlantes.
Au gré de sculptures, dessins, estampes et carnets, l’exposition éclaire l’une des parts motrices de la création chez Markus Raetz.
