Uwe Wittwer - The Mission
Tue-Fri: 10-6pm; Sat: 12-5pm
Parafin is delighted to announce a new exhibition by the acclaimed Swiss artist Uwe Wittwer (born Zurich, 1954), his third with the gallery. In ’The Mission’, Wittwer weaves together historical and fictional subjects with autobiographical elements, forming a web of cultural references around collective and personal memory. The legacy of conflict, displacement and the failure of the imperial and colonial projects are recurring themes.
In addition to oil paintings and watercolours, a new series of sculptural glass works will be shown for the first time in the UK. Taken as a whole, this new body of work evokes a ‘dream journey’, exploring ideas around authenticity and truth and the search for knowledge.
