French artist Guillaume Bruère works at great speed, creating multiple works of energetically vigorous draughtsmanship in a short space of time. He prefers to draw on site in museums.
« Zurich is very close to my heart. I’ve made many friends here and received great support in many areas. So I’m delighted that now we’re staging the exhibition at the Kunsthaus. » — Guillaume Bruère
« With Böcklin’s ‘War’ I deliberately tested out the grey areas of what’s allowed. If you ask whether you’re allowed to spread a roll of this size out on the floor of the Kunsthaus you’ll certainly be told no. So I just went ahead and did it. » — Guillaume Bruère
« A painted portrait confronts us with a contradiction: you have the impression you’re looking at someone who in turn is looking at you (through the white dot in the painted pupil), even though it’s just a painting. » — Guillaume Bruère
