Marion Baruch: Letting go endless blooming
[Press Release]

Galerie Urs Meile is delighted to announce the first solo exhibition of the artist Marion Baruch (*1929 Timişoara, Romania, lives and works in Gallarate, Italy) at the Lucerne gallery. The exhibition Letting go endless blooming explicitly refers to the present time. The artist responds to the dangers of the pandemic and the limitations imposed to combat it with open-mindedness and positivity. On show are newer works made of fabric that contrast the notion of lockdown and limits with the theme of free spaces, in both the metaphorical as well as the physical sense. They are remnants from the fashion industry, which the artist gives a new life through her work.

“The artist Marion Baruch possesses a special talent: she always lives in the moment and nurtures herself with the present. What sounds like the simplest, most banal thing in the world is, however, an art in itself, which is reflected in more than just the ninety-year-old artist’s philosophy of life. Her oeuvre is also permeated by this astounding energy. Her long-term body of work speaks with a vital voice that has never shied away from consistently pursuing its own path. Living in the now is not child’s play: it requires great strength. Then again, this attitude is also connected to the ability to let go—especially with the sense of ease and weightlessness that is particularly manifested in the latest phase of Baruch’s work.“  (Excerpt from the press release by Susanna Koeberle)

The solo show Marion Baruch. Retrospektive – innenausseninnen at the Kunstmuseum Luzern runs until 11 October 2020. On Wednesday, 24 June, 6–8pm, the book vernissage of the exhibition catalogue will take place at the Kunstmuseum Luzern.
