Sometimes we should take time out to readjust our marks, start looking at things from a different position, go back on our steps, take a step backwards in order to better understand what is happening in the present, just stopping for a second so as to be able to take two better steps forwards.

We frequently lose our points of reference, which is a little destabilizing, unsettling and often troublesome for our personal and collective identity. It is essential to continually question yourself.

Sometimes, it is enough just to look at what has been done over the past few years and is continuing with force and relevance in order to centre our vision and apprehend the near future. We should always understand the diverse artistic research in our times and anticipate the main preoccupations of tomorrow.

This years programme will try to find parallels between the artistic research carried out by artists of different generations. On the one hand, artists whose work is enough in itself to question us and who have developed over a certain time, a theoretical position and a continuity based on reflection, and, on the other hand, a younger brand of artist.

The public can take an intellectual meander passing back and forth between a fairly recent topic and a more or less distant past in the field of contemporary creation, learn how to find its reference marks and experiment with them.

Michel Ritter, director of the Centre culturel suisse de Paris
FROM 22 JANUARY TO 26 MARCH
IAN ANÜLL
Ian Anüll was born in 1948 in Sempach in the canton of Lucerne (Switzerland). He now lives between Berlin and Zurich.

The Centre culturel suisse is organising the first large-scale exhibition of Ian Anülls work in France, showing paintings, videos, watercolours and installations spanning a period from the end of the 70s to the present.

Ian Anüll is an artist who has for a long time been part of the world known as the subculture; turning up here and there, he has always steered clear of any sort of established order, whether bureaucratic or artistic (Bernhard Bürgi in the Ian Anüll catalogue, representation national Swiss during the 21st International Biennal of Sao Paulo, 1991)
Project Room
FROM 22 JANUARY TO 19 FÉBRUARY
MARCO POLONI / photographs
Marco Poloni was born in 1964 in Amsterdam. He now lives between Geneva and Chicago. He represented Switzerland in the national pavilion at the last biennale of Venice.

Here, he is showing 64 photographs entitled AKA (Also Known As) Script for a Short film, 2002, whose fictional and composite subject is the terrorist of a dormant cell based in Germany. The portrait of this character is made up from photographs of different people and is presented in the form of a storyboard.
FROM 23 FEBRUARY TO 26 MARCH
IRÈNE HUG / installation / private viewing Thursday 23 February / 6 pm
Irène Hug was born in Zurich and lives and works in Berlin.
In the project room, she is presenting a specific installation made up of photographs, sculptures and paintings depicting the signs, letters and language of advertising and interrogating our environment more and more saturated by graphic signs. In her opinion we are used to seeing words without necessarily connecting them with their lexical signification or phrasing. Bettina Carl
