“True to Self” , new exhibition at Galerie des Bains, Geneva

Exhibition from the 24th of June 2020 to the 25th of July 2020, Galerie des Bains, rue des Bains 22, 1205 Geneva

Galerie Des Bains in collaboration with Invisible Borders is pleased to present True to self: a dialogue between Ajarb Bernard Ategwa and Maurice Mboa, the first duo show of the two Cameroonian artists in Switzerland.

The exhibition True to Self is a conversational interplay between two young artists, whose path may seem similar but whose artistic expression contrasts. One uses a sociological perspective rooted in everyday realities and, the other, a philosophical one based on a multicultural experience. As much as their works and techniques diverge, they complement each other and reveal the ambivalence of the role of the artist. At times he is a the witness and transcribes the concrete realities of his contemporaries, and at times he deciphers the limits of the graspable and becomes a vector to escape those daily realities. In both cases, however, the artist must remain true to self.
