About the print:
SAUVAGE. Le corps sauvage au cœur de la jungle.
Lire. Délire. Ruines du futur rongées par le temps.
Le temple est vide, les esprits aussi.
Restent les sensations. La lumière, les odeurs, l’humidité, la chaleur du soleil qui passe à travers la canopée.
Sur le sol, les insectes creusent. Les plantes s’échappent.
Le corps sauvage s’échappe et se libère de tout. Fichtre
About the artist:
Mathias Forbach (Fichtre) studied at the École Cantonale d’Art in Lausanne and graduated from there in 2005 with a Bachelor in Media & Interaction Design. He began teaching illustration at the École Cantonale d’Art in Sierre, Valais in 2009, and decided in 2012 to proceed his artistic education by following the Work.Master programme at the Haute École d’Art et de Design in Geneva. In 2014, he co-founded STADIO art gallery in Vevey with Joëlle Nicolas, Guillaume Ehinger and Jacques Duboux, and was awarded a Masters degree in Visual Arts in 2015. As a freelance graphic artist, he uses drawing and illustration as means for experimentation and research. The exhibition space is core to his approach, and he is constantly questioning and changing it. It is a multi-faceted vector, with infinite possibilities, a revival of graphic languages. The result is a “hyperarea”, a continent with undefined edges, which reminds us that visual art is limitless, as is the variation of its medium.
