Josette Taramarcaz
Concentrated on the human being, Josette Taramarcaz’s work follows a logical subjective, based on emotion, roots and memory. All her work turned to the symbol, analogy, the hidden side of things. The destinies narrated in her installations evokes the questions that shape us and accompany us throughout our life by setting these statements deeply related to our human condition. Alternating between figuration and abstraction, she develops a personal language following her intuition, with works in large and small scale, in clay, porcelain, concrete, wax and bronze. 1996 EAA (Applied Arts School),Vevey, diploma 2001, 2010, 2012 Prize-winner of competitions of artwork for the public place Selected Solo Exhibitions 1998 – 2002 Galerie Maya Guidi, Carouge, Switzerland 1999 Galerie Graf, Zürich, Switzerland 2000 Belle Usine, Fully, Switzerland 2004 Jardin Flore-Alpe, Champex; Gallerie Grande Fontaine, Sion, Switzerland 2010 Galerie Elfi Borher, Bonstetten; Le Crochetan, Monthey; Château de Venthône, Switzerland 2011 Musée du Manoir de la Ville, Martigny; Ferme de la Chapelle, Lancy, Switzerland 2016 Modern Art Museum of Yerevan, Armеnia 2018 Galerie Kaminska Stocker, Yverdon, Switzerland Selected Group Exhibitions 1999 Art Center, Kanazawa, Japan 2002 Galerie Marianne Brand, Carouge; Ferme Asile, Sion, Switzerland; 5th and 6th Biennale Le Caire, Egypt 2006 Design Biennale, Lucerne; Ferme Asile, Sion, Switzerland 2009 Fondation Brückner, Carouge; Musée d’Art et d’Histoire, Neuchâtel, Switzerland 2011 Triennale d’Art Contemporain Valais/Wallis, Leuk; Go Tell It on the Mountain, Verbier 3D, Switzerland 2013 Museo d’Arte, Mendrisio; 10 ans de sculpture, Champex, Switzerland 2014 Modern Art Museum of Yerevan, Armenia; Triennale d’Art Contemporain Valais/Wallis, Turtmann, Switzerland 2015 Come closer, Manoir de Martigny; Villa Dutoit, Genève; ArtEdifices, Assens, Switzerland 2016 MACT/CACT Arte Contemporanea Ticino, Bellinzona, Switzerland 2017 Triennale d’Art Contemporain Valais/ Wallis, Martigny, Switzerland
