Roman Signer »Le temps gelé / Die gefrorene Zeit«
Centre de la photographie, Genève (CH)
Opening:September 15, 2016
Exhibition until November 13, 2016

The CPG is hosting the first solo exhibition in Geneva of visual artist Roman Signer (born in 1938, lives and works in Saint-Gall) since the one held at the CEC (Centre d’édition contemporaine) a quarter of a century previously.
It examines for the first time a little known aspect of his work: the snapshot, in other words time stopped, time frozen. Starting with his little known photographic series, the »Reisebilder«, the CPG reveals the links between sculptural works and photographic works and attempts to showcase what is photographic in nature in Roman Signer’s work.

The exhibition will be crowned by a publication in November 2016 with texts by curators Joerg Bader and Carmen del Valle.

The exhibition is supported by the Fonds cantonal d’art contemporain, the Fonds mécénat des sig – services industriels de Genève, Pro Helvetia, the Alfred Richterich Stiftung and the Galerie Häusler Contemporary München | Zürich.
