Josephsohn / Märkli

A Conjunction

30 September 2017 - 1 January 2018


Hauser & Wirth Somerset is pleased to present an exhibition of works by the late Swiss sculptor Josephsohn (1920 – 2012) alongside the architectural drawings of his long-time friend, Swiss architect Peter Märkli (born 1953). Taking its name from ‘La Congiunta’, an isolated museum designed by Märkli to house a number of Josephsohn’s bronze sculptures, the exhibition, curated by Niall Hobhouse, examines the intense and longstanding collaboration between these two powerful creative minds, exploring what two very different disciplines – sculpture and architecture – can offer the other as insight, and about the generosity and humanity of such an exchange. The exhibition brings together a selection of Josephsohn’s sculptures produced throughout his 60 year-long artistic career, as well as some of the artist’s works on paper, alongside a series of drawings by Peter Märkli. The material includes both artists’ early efforts to find distinctive creative voices.
