Currently on view at Fondation Speerstra in Apples, Switzerland is “Week-End à Rome” a two person exhibition featuring Martine Bedin and Mai-Thu Perret. The exhibition is the occasion for an encounter between Martine Bedin (*Bordeaux 1957) and Mai-Thu Perret (*Geneva 1976). While the first is one of the rare women designers who have been part of the Memphis group, the second has over the last years played continuously with forms and histories of the modernity. If their meeting is unexpected, it seems nevertheless almost natural. Both artists also challenge the usual hierarchic relation that suggests that one should develop appropriate spaces for the other. Pleasantly and joyfully, they sew together the metaphors of their common interests.
“Week-End à Rome” is on view through June 8, 2014.
