La Grande Salle
For the young Swiss artist Louane exhibiting at the Kolly Gallery is a big challenge. Nevertheless he thought to himself „go big or go home“ and entitled his exhibition La Grande Salle. Kolly Gallery is pleased to present Louane with his solo exhibition in Zurich. The pop up exhibition lasts from January 17 to January 19, 2019.
The exhibition is multilayered, clever and conceptual, as it incorporates various concepts from art history to communication strategies to theories of aesthetic and non-aesthetic. Quite early Louane has been inspired and fascinated by Marcel Duchamp, at that point he realized the power of art and communication. He understood that communicating art can generate certain feelings and he devoted himself to detect these strategies. Similar to Duchamp he would like to explore, question and challenge the role of spacial contexts. Therefore Louane’s aim is to a study structural communication meticulously in order to achieve non-structural communication through his art. In other words: «Learn about the rules perfectly to start breaking them» (Louane, 2018).
