A platform for young and established artists
Galerie Maria Bernheim was founded in December 2015 by Maria Bernheim, to pursue the goal of showing the work of contemporary artists from around the world.

    Denis Savary: Ventimiglia

    26 May - 12 June 2021

As often in his oeuvre, this series pays homage to artists such as Duchamp and Sophie Taueber Arp whilst being simultaneously imbued with themes and images of old world tales, where temptation and salvation represent two pieces of the same puzzle. The play on light and transparency mixes kitsch with a romantic pre-raphaelite idea of landscape, whilst creating an immersive environment for the viewer, transporting them to a small village on the Italian coast.
