Viviane Rombaldi Seppey

Ici et Là

from May 8th until July 2nd 2014


Dubner Moderne is pleased to present,

Ici et Là

a solo exhibition of collages by the New York based Valaisanne artist Viviane Rombaldi Seppey.

The exhibition, her first in Switzerland, will be on view from May 9th through July 2nd 2014 with the official vernissage on May 8th from 18h to 21h in the presence of the artist.

In this digital world in which we are neither here nor there, Viviane Rombaldi Seppey repurposes the phonebook, an artifact of the analog age, to combine here and there in a single visual image. Having predominantly lived abroad as a Swiss expatriate in the East as well as the West, Rombaldi Seppey approaches the phonebook as a universal record that embodies a definition of place. As such, her collages which ultimately fragment this record, maintain the identity of some address listings, offering a glimpse into the characteristics of the location, whilst overall her compositions associate patterns, structure and imagery with the time, space and relationship of belonging.

Born in Sion, Switzerland, Viviane Rombaldi Seppey, has a MFA from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology at LASALLE-SIA, College of the Arts Singapore and has exhibited extensively throughout the USA and Australia.
