'BEGENUNGEN (CONNECTIONS): ECHOES OF PEOPLE

Updated: Apr 23

Anticipation is high as I look forward to another gem at the Anja Edith Brinckmann Gallery. Basel!


From 20 April to 31 May 2024, visitors can experience 'BEGENUNGEN', a coveted show that fuses art and humanity. .


The occasion reunites two renowned artists after a ten-year gap since their previous creative duet. German painter Henri Deparade and Swiss sculptor Paul Louis Meier converge with a shared focus on the act of being people. We are in for a treat!


In his colourful paintings, Henri Deparade traces bodies in the imaginary pictorial space of ancient myths. The etherial overlapping of colour and lines create a dance of intrigue and delight. 


Paul Louis Meier captures human nature in figures fashioned from plaster and bronze, They emerge as sculptural events, a grouping of figurines each telling a silent story and capturing a moment frozen in time.

Together, the artists achieve an aesthetic consensus, a whispered pact. Their treaty heralds the bodily structure of our species, whilst depicting our minds' emotional depth and existential experience. In a cacophony of diversity and differences, it is such moments of coming together that we spectators, freed for a moment to pause and reflect, are reminded of what it is to be human. This is the power of art that hums a silent spell of enchantment and connects our souls.
