Exhibition in Centro Giacometti
Oppermann's exhibition 'How I came to the image'
In the exhibition 'How I came to the image' at the Centro Giacometti in September - October 2021, psychoanalyst Matthias Oppermann takes up a central theme in Alberto Giacometti's art: painting and drawing what the artist sees. The psychoanalyst lists the key moments in the biography of the artist from Breganze and contrasts these special events with the resulting key works, i.e. their implementation in art. Finally, in this part of the exhibition, Oppermann analyses the theoretical foundations of "seeing" in Alberto Giacometti's work.
In another part of the exhibition, Oppermann shows his own drawings and paintings of Bergell landscapes. In doing so, he focuses on passages that would otherwise never appear in painting: places and features that the hiker observes on the way to his destination. He visualises suppressed impressions as he walks, as he passively wanders his gaze over secondary scenes, impressions that are thought to have been lost, but which contribute profoundly to the perception of a lived landscape. In more recent works, the structures of the body make their way through landscapes and confront their own fragility in the face of the landscape.
