Musée Ariana, Switzerland

Ceramics, Glass

Stand number: A19

The Musée Ariana in Geneva has over 27,000 items in its rich collections, illustrative of all ceramic, glass and stained glass techniques from the 9th to the 21st century in Europe, the Middle East and the Far East. The institution has commissioned the photographer Nicolas Lieber to embody the diversity of its collections at TRESOR. The artist links Basel and the Ariana by uniting the joyful, wild profusion of colours, evoking the carnival’s Totentanz (Dance of Death), with the black and white of the city’s coat of arms.
