The Geneva Biennial of Sculptures will be held for the first time this summer in the Parc des Eaux-Vives. Following artgenève’s initiative to present sculptures in the public space, on the Quai Wilson during the January fair, this second summer event allows visitors to discover around twenty works of contemporary art in one of Geneva’s most beautiful parks.
The WFAC is associated with this exhibition, curated by Lionel Bovier for this 2018 edition. Alexander Calder’s 1973 work The Sun on the Mountain, well known to Genevans, is the only permanent resident of this temporary exhibition. A second work, commissioned by the WFAC, finds here the opportunity to be shown in a new context – Denis Savary’s performance Roma Roma Roma, an activation of model hot-air balloons, was presented in the heart of the old city last winter during the Geneva Lux Festival. Finally, Martina-Sofie Wildberger’s performance RUN-UP was created expressly for the Biennale.
