Self-Tattoos, estampes et multiples, 1982–2001
The exhibition organized by the Print Room of the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire presented a lesser-known side of the work of Fabrice Gygi (1965, Geneva) than his sculptures: graphic works, linocuts, drawings, silkscreens, ink-stamps, and edited objects. In 1982, Gygi began publishing small books and printing plate engravings. These works already contained the seeds of some of the essential motifs, particularly around the issues of authority and revolt, that would fully come to fruition only after his training at the Ecole des arts décoratifs and the Ecole supérieure d’arts visuels in Geneva. While these graphic pieces were the groundwork of his future efforts, they would also continue to be part of his repertoire for three decades. By 2001, the artist had created over 250 linocuts and silkscreens.
