Simon Berger : Le verre dans tous ses éclats
9 April – 28 August 2022
The Bernese artist Simon Berger (*1976) spent years optimizing his artistic technique. He has always been fascinated by human faces. In 2016, while he was still in an experimental phase, he created his first work in glass. His art confounds perceptions of reality and his chosen aesthetic gives new meaning to our notion of a “broken window”.
Today, Simon Berger is in demand for projects all over the world. In 2021 his career gained momentum as a result of his portrait of the US Vice President Kamala Harris, which was exhibited in the National Mall in Washington.
For his exhibition at Vitromusée Romont, his first in a museum context, Simon Berger is creating completely new works, to give visitors an overview of his artistic production. The exhibition includes a video interview with the artist (see an extract here).
Creation of a live work
