Kunstmuseum Winterthur, Schweiz
To celebrate the inauguration of the two part installation at the two museums A WORK OF ART WITHOUT EMOTION IS NOT A WORK OF ART and ARE YOU SURE? and to integrate the publicly accessible work into Bethan Huws’ oeuvre, the Kunst Museum Winterthur will present two essential aspects in the artist’s multimedia and conceptual oeuvre: Works on Paper / Word Vitrines.
"Works on Paper": Bethan Huws’ watercolors are of an incomparable tenderness and vulnerability. The act of drawing is also one of personal memory. It can be a reminiscence of certain places or things.
The "Word Vitrines" are commercially available metal boxes with glass front and black rear wall, which serve as information, for example as a price and offer overview in a restaurant. The artist plays these everyday objects with short texts, transforming them into complex linguistic images.
