About the Emerging Artists Programme
Art Plural Gallery established the Emerging Artists Programme to promote the work of promising artists at an early stage of their career. The selected artist is offered his first solo show in the unique space of the gallery, the publication of an exhibition catalogue in his namesake, and the possibility of fringe events in partnership with educational or social institutions. Art Plural Gallery’s commitment to emerging artists is made possible thanks to the support from corporate partners Gereje Corporate Finance, Vandaalen Swiss Value Partners and private partner Ian Dunderdale, as well as official sparkling partner Chandon.
About the Exhibition
Shot in an abandoned mansion on an undisclosed location, Sans Souci creates an ambiguous space in which to explore notions of beauty, memory and history. The series of twelve prints present a compelling portrait of a place in time and a way of life at once fading and being reinvented with each new season. Poetic focus on relics of an indelible past draws from the viewer a sensation or memory, allowing fluid narratives to form in a visual setting of stasis and decay.
