Wall of Things, 2018
Represented by Galerie C in Neuchâtel, unfurls a collection of "human things" across the wall, strange objects that question our identity as a homo faber (a man who makes). At the crossroads of natural sciences and the art of science, Gonzenbach is like a researcher: his production takes forms that are as variable as the experiments that intersperse his career. Although his means of expression are multiple, each is marked by a desire to apprehend the world using unconventional means and to show it in uniquely different ways. His work, driven by the daily observation of life in the widest meaning of the term, an insatiable curiosity, a poetic imagination and a constant need to be doing something new, swings between the human, animal and plant worlds, regularly highlighting the human traits we attribute to objects or animals, or conversely man's animal side.
