Edition 2018

Anne Golaz


Galerie C, Neuchâtel, Switzerland

The series Corbeau takes us to Anne Golaz’s childhood home, a rural farm she spent over 13 years portraying. Like its namesake, Edgar Allan Poe’s poem, Corbeau is a work possessed by questions of disappearance and remembrance, here of siblings and heritage. The story is told in layers of interwoven narrative. Running through the story as a whole is a young man full of duty and fidelity, put to work at an early age. Photos, still frames, text and drawing shape a narrative backdrop that leads the viewer through a documentary story, as well as a fictional, dream-like experience. To achieve this depth of storytelling, Golaz spent two years with the playwright Antoine Jaccoud writing the texts that punctuate the work. Thus, the artist creates passageways through the various media, each of which stays true to the closed-door narrative.
