Solo exhibition of the dual Franco-swiss nationality artist, Mathias Schmied In his exhibition at the Art Museum of Pully, Batman and Spiderman disappear in favor of broken color spots, detach the pages, leaving behind their universe. Covered with paint, posters of pin-ups only reveal a few pieces of flesh and words, finely cut, are reduced to a few lines. A game of hide and saw that gives a narrative ambiguity to works. The absence and silence are the heart of the practice of the artist: it is up to the viewer to try to fill them.
