The works specially conceived for the exhibition provide an insight into the current work of the artist from Beromünster, who has lived in Germany since the 1980s. Parallel to the exhibition in Emmenbrücke, further works will be on display at Galerie Mai 36 in Zurich.
A publication and an annual journal will accompany the exhibition.

The artist Pia Fries (born 1955 in Beromünster, lives and works in Düsseldorf), winner of the art prize of the city of Lucerne in 2014, has persistently developed painting in an elaborate interplay of lines and colors in her more than 30 years of work. She combines dynamic, precise gestures and strong coloring to create witty and sensual pictorial inventions. Always with an eye on the attempt to explore the spatial dimensions and explore the limits of the material. The color, especially in its material quality, sets the rhythm, it is movement, plays with emptiness, stillness and opulence, embodies severity and playfulness and oscillates between concentration and openness.
