Press release in English

Song of the Chimeras by Yuval Avital will open at our gallery in Geneva at Grand-Rue 23. This is the artist's first solo presentation with Gowen. 

The exhibition consists of works from Avital’s most significant series. Spanning sculpture, sound, painting, drawing, photography and video, it immerses the viewer in a multi-sensory experience. By exploiting these different mediums, Avital investigates new veins of expression with an atmospheric intensity. His singing tubes and singing masks challenge the viewer with their spatial presence, their sound effectuating mysterious revelations. Paintings and drawings which assume a freedom in their instinctive, expressive lines and forms explore surreal compositions in bold colours.

Born in Jerusalem in 1977, multimedia artist, composer and guitarist Yuval Avital has displayed his works in a variety of spaces from public venues to industrial archaeological sites, theatres and museums including  Macro Museum, Rome; Ostrale Art Biennale, Dresden; La Fabbrica del Vapore, Milan; Museo Marino Marini, Florence; Manifesta 13 Biennial, Marseille; Loop Festival, Barcelona; La Fabbrica del Cioccolato, Blenio (Switzerland); Saint Antoine Church, Istanbul; GAM, Turin and Tel Aviv Museum. Avital lives and works in Milan.
