Le Mouvement is a multipart exhibition which investigates the nature of sculpture and public space by hosting multiple performances in the town of Biel/Bienne. The show touches upon a variety of inter-related topics and issues, which include the nature and uses of public space; art in public space; the individual and shared body in public space, both static and in movement; and the relationship between the fleeting materiality of the body and the more permanent materiality of sculpture.

Swiss Sculpture Exhibition ESS-SPA
The 12th edition of the Swiss Sculpture Exhibition in 2014, curated by Gianni Jetzer and Chris Sharp, continues the innovative spirit of the format by offering the most radical edition yet. True to its provocative legacy of 60 years, Le Mouvement will challenge the very definition of public art by creating no sculpture at all. The 12th Swiss Sculpture Exhibition in Biel/Bienne will be solely dedicated to performance.
