Carmen Perrin


Stubborn geometry or the temptation to climb the sky

Celebrating the 100th birthday of Neuchâtel painter, Lermite, artist Carmen Perrin has created a wall installation in MBAL’s café. Sharing Lermite’s interest in light, Carmen Perrin offers visitors a truly poetic visual experience through tiny fragments attached to thousands of stretched threads, offering a fresh and contemporary look at the work of Lermite, whose foundation is housed by MBAL.


Born in Bolivia, Carmen Perrin (Switzerland, 1953) lives and works in Geneva and in France. She established herself in the 1980s as a visual artist creating sculptures, before increasingly focusing on architecture and landscape design. She is currently working on projects related to public spaces and is exploring the close relationship between sculpture and drawing. She is represented by Wilde Gallery (Geneva/Zürich), Gisèle Linder Gallery (Basel) and Catherine Putman Gallery (Paris).
