Booklaunch of Luca Etter, Guérisseurs
The Fribourg photographer has created a sensitive children’s story in the form of a photo-novel in a local landscape, with close partners. An encounter in the form of a meditation on the passage of time. Luca Etter is a professional photographer. At the same time, he develops educational modules based on the concept of opening the eye in various institutions. He has published several photography books (La Bétaillère, Bruxelles à l’infini). In 2020, he published Entre-deux with Sériel Éditions, a publishing structure he founded. This narrative intersects the environments of the criminal police and a prison. In 2023, with Sériel Éditions, he publishes the photographic children’s tale Guérisseurs, a work combining text and images that he will present at Friart.
Margaretha Jüngling will be offering Friart a new version of her original dinners. She honed her culinary skills during three years as chef de partie at the prestigious Relæ restaurant in Copenhagen, as well as in various kitchens in Thailand, the USA, France, Mexico and Japan. The Zurich-based chef-artist shares her research in the form of speculative dinners, collective culinary and food experiments, oral and sound performances, edible fantasies and giveaway bags.
The music of Grenoble-born Denis Morin and aka Vague Imaginaires crosses and pollinates modal and synthetic music, equatorial ambience and rhythmic circular minimalism in an ecological imaginary of “natural forces and enchanted worlds”. After releasing a cassette album with California’s Not Not Fun and an EP with Scotland’s 12th Isle, both of which were highly acclaimed on the international scene (sold out on cassette and vinyl). He is currently releasing a CD album which, without leaving the ecological sphere, takes on a social character with melancholy. His music transforms reality into “a new world, an exoplanet without gravitons, a world of voluptuousness, like when you dream you’re flying”.
Basile Dinbergs is a Geneva-based artist. At Friart, he will propose a performance on the spirit of place, constructing a fictional narrative from certain traces and objects found. The artist has been a member of the Ok confiance collective since 2015 and of the itinerant project space _x_x_x_.ch since 2019. His practice explores sculpture and performance as attempts to set up parallel and collective economies, while questioning notions of value, circulation and production of know-how, labor and objects.
Over the course of three choreographed evenings, Friart will give the floor to artists, cooks and musicians whose practices converge around sensitivities to landscape and degrowth perspectives.
To accompany this expanded vision of the arts, the exhibition space of the Petites-Rames 22 industrial building will reveal traces of its history, from the cardboard factory (1896 –1936) to a shelter for the most destitute (1936 –1989). The Kunsthalle invites you to engage in a deeper time that dissolves the boundaries of consumption.
