The Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève is happy to present the first institutional solo exhibition in Switzerland of Icelandic artist Hreinn Friðfinnsson. With more than seventy works, To Catch a Fish with a Song: 1964–Today celebrates this understated but major artist, looking back on more than half a century of his inventive practice.
Hreinn Friðfinnsson’s work is celebrated for both its lyricism and its stark poetry, which transcends the often-commonplace subjects and materials he uses to create his pieces. He has sometimes been compared to artists working in Conceptual and Romantic Conceptual modes. Indeed, his practice shows a certain kinship with these movements; for example, it is grounded in the dematerialization of art and has strong links to landscape and natural phenomena.
Opening hours: From Tuesday to Sunday from 11.00 to 18.00
