Escapism – Roger Eberhard

Exhibition open from 3 September 2022 to 8 January 2023

 

As part of the Festival Images Vevey (3 – 25 September 2022), the Zurich artist Roger Eberhard has taken an interest in a Swiss tradition: collections of coffee creamer lids.

These lids have long been illustrated with images that cover all genres of photography.

Favouring visuals of idyllic landscapes, those that encourage escape, Roger Eberhard reproduced them with a high enlargement factor.

Then he printed them in very large format.  Thus reinterpreted and magnified, the images resonate with the concerns of our time.

The exhibition is proposed by the Festival Images Vevey in collaboration with our museum.
