Annemarie Von Matt (1905–1967), a prolific yet little known artist, is presented in Paris for the first time ever outside her native Switzerland. She is accompanied in this exhibition by nine contemporary artists and authors who are invited to explore and interrogate her life and work. Her exuberant practice encompassed painting, drawing, sculpture, applied arts, assemblage, photography, self mise-en-scène, and an obsession with writing. Propelled by a playful approach to language, her voice is full of humour yet honed, too, by a critical awareness of the constraints of conservative society; it speaks of her urge to flout the social and artistic conventions of her day, of her need for uninhibited self-expression.

The exhibition reflects the fragmentary and mercurial character of her life’s work. While not presuming to offer an exhaustive account of this vast oeuvre it invites the public to (re-)engage with it through the performances, installations, drawings and texts of Mathis Altmann, Sophie Jung, Judith Keller, Simone Lappert, Quinn Latimer, Céline Manz, Sam Porritt, Davide-Christelle Sanvee and Manon Wertenbroek.

In cooperation with the Nidwaldner Museum, Stans and the Kantonsbibliothek Nidwalden, where a first version of the exhibition has been presented from May 13–September 27, 2020.
