Exhibition Catalogue Alberto Giacometti, Barbara Chase-Riboud, presented at Institut Giacometti, Paris (20 oct. 2021 - 9 jan. 2022).
Their dialogue rests on points of contact : the work on matter and bronze, a passion for Ancient Egypt and writing. This confrontation between Giacometti, whom one considers as "streamlined" and classical, and Chase-Riboud, "tangible" and baroque, also reveals a shared passionate attention to the representation of the body.
This exhibition, the rst in France for Barbara Chase-Riboud since 1974, offers us the gaze of a woman artist on the oeuvre of Alberto Giacometti with whom she is in sympathy.
