Zurich, 1.11.2013 – The private view is on 14 November 2013 at the House of Communication, headquarters of Serviceplan Suisse, Plan.Net and Serviceplan PR, and will be inaugurated by the cultural entrepreneur, curator and author Martin Heller.
Behind Jean Etienne A. is a doyen of Swiss advertising. The association of advertising and art is noticeable in two or three of the approximately forty works on show in the first exhibition venue. From 14.11.2013 the Galerie Burgerstocker at the House of Communication will be exhibiting Jean Etienne A.'s series of works entitled "Undercolor Diary": Striking monochrome collages with a poetic depth that do not reveal all at first glance and yield fresh insights each time they are viewed.
"The residents of the House of Communication, Serviceplan Suisse, Plan.Net and Serviceplan PR, are absolutely delighted to be able to provide the Galerie Burgerstocker and Jean Etienne A. with an appropriate space," says Christian Baertschi, spokesperson for the House of Communication and managing partner of Serviceplan Suisse. The previous tenant of the building, a secondary school, used the marble hall as a canteen.
Sacha Moser, Managing Partner and Creative Director of Serviceplan Suisse, adds: "This exhibition represents the fulfilment of two wishes. First, Burgerstocker is exhibiting the work of an artist and creative for whom we have huge admiration. And second, we are launching our concept, the use of the hall as a venue for various events, training sessions, exhibitions, as a photographic or film studio or even as a pop-up store. We're always very happy to consider innovative requests."
The exhibition will be inaugurated on Thursday 14.11.2013 at 18.00 at the House of Communication, Freiestrasse 129 in Zurich.
