APO-CALYPSE is an ambitious project which will bring together 28 Swiss and international visual artists on the theme of the apocalypse. The exhibition will be bringing together very young artists as well as major figures of contemporary art. Einzweidrei will be exhibiting photography, video, sculpture, ceramics, drawings and installations.
Altogether 21 works will be produced specifically for the project, includingworks by Jonathan Monk, Shilpa Gupta, Gianni Motti, Jeanne Susplugas and Alain Declercq, to mention but a few.
We wish to build on this interest to provoke wider discussion, not exclusively focused on the theological or cataclysmic aspects. This project offers a cross-section of viewpoints in thinking about the end and about a possible new world. Our hope is that the works presented and the warm welcome with free admission will draw a wide non-elitist public, and not just lovers of contemporary art. An absolutely unique exhibition area and effective promotion should contribute to this objective.
The exhibition will take place from the 16th November to 21st December 2012 in an exceptional and non-institutional 1,200 m2 space in a former silverware factory located in Clarens, near Montreux, Switzerland, on the shore of Lake Geneva, one hour by train from Geneva.
