21.02 — 27.04.2014
OPENING: THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 20 AT 6 P.M.
Throughout his residency at the Centre, Hayan forced himself to paint a large variety of subjects on medium format sized paper surfaces. The human figure in its primitive form is a recurrent theme of Hayan's work, visible in more or less obvious terms in almost all his paintings.
Improvisation and gesture are at the heart of his practice.
For his exhibition in the Project Space, Hayan will present a mural painting; its subject is still unknown to the artist. The title "Figurines de Genève" hints to the artist's inspiration for the mural – the local people –, yet will not appear in a clear manner in the mural.
Hayan Kam Nakache (*1982), lives and works in Geneva. He graduated from the Haute Ecole d'Art et de Design de Genève (2009).
As part of the artist's collective Tobby Landei, he participated in various exhibitions in 2013: "Hotel Abisso" (Centre d'Art Contemporain Genève), "A la recherche de la bohème perdue" (CAN, Neuchâtel) and "40 ans Visarte" (Manoir de Martigny).
Tobby Landei recently published its first book: "Travaux 2009-2013".
In 2013 Hayan took part of the exhibition "Travelling Généalogique" at Marbriers 4, Geneva. He was also in residence at the "Villa for Swiss artists" in Geziret el Daha (Cairo, Egypt).
Hayan's work was published in "Sources" a project by Vincent Romagny, published by éditions Rond-point projects, Paris.
