Pascal Robert Portraits April 23 May 23 2009

Laleh June Galerie is pleased to present the first solo exhibition by the Swiss born artist Pascal Robert (born in Bern 1978, french-swiss / vietnamese parents,
lives and works in Geneva) at Laleh June Galerie, Basel.
Pascal Robert in his striking abstract portraits explores issues of identity and processes of image—making that have particular relevance for an age of instant communication. After completing his studies at Geneva University of Art and Design (HEAD / ES BA) his works were last exhibited at the Kunsthalle Bern, at the Kunstmuseum Thun and
at the Kyrgyz National Museum of Fine Arts in Bishkek in 2008.
According to Robert “ aim thereby has been to understand the essence of the fascination for biographies and societal portraits in the sense of shifting identities...” Portraits - Before and Beyond the Images Opening Reception will be on April 23, 2009 and the exhibition continues through May 23, that features a powerful line up of drawing, collage, video and video still.
