The recurring problem with exhibition openings at Galerie Cimaise is that they are so popular! I manage to squeeze in the door. There is a buzz in the air. With “Entre deux mondes” the discerning Mourad Ghedira, with the help of Aline Kundig and Nicolas Spuhler, serves us a delicious cocktail of works by five photographers whose images take us to other worlds. (And the wine is exquisite!) Bravo Mourad!
This busy corner is given over to five photographs by Tonie Bertherat. I love the image (“Arevamirp”) of a young woman wearing a helmet made entirely of sweets. I love the idea of making the helmet!
I stand looking at a large photograph that speaks to me of all the young princesses out there kissing all those damn frogs in the hope a prince will materialise. I have the privilege of talking to Madame Delahaye herself. Her other world is that of Aesop’s fables. Her model for the photograph is her niece. If I have to choose a favourite piece at this classy but fun exhibition, this is it.
Photographic exhibitions that excite interest are rare. This is one such. With “Entre deaux mondes,” Galerie Cimaise sets the bar high. I plan to return when the crowd disperses.
The exhibition closes on 28 May 2015.
