Press release

“To study men, we must look close by; to study man, we must learn to look afar.“ Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Essay on the Origin of Languages (1781), chap. viii.
Gowen is pleased to announce Next, a group exhibition presenting around ten Swiss and international artists. The show includes artists who have either been invited by the gallery, as well as artists with whom it has recently started collaborating along with historical artists from the gallery.

A multitude of universes and languages thrive through which the artists tell stories, conveying the viewer to unreal, ambiguous and dreamlike environments, both near and far. ‘Next’ is equally a term to express the idea of a passage, of a change, it means ‘which comes after’, ‘the following’ and also something ‘which is near’. The exhibition leads us on an exploration of dialogues and narratives in which past, present and future coalesce into a flow that comes and goes between fragments of memory and parallel temporal realities.

Works on loan from private collections are included.
