Founded in 2020, ESCAPEMENT ART presents modern and contemporary art practices by established artists from Europe and East Asia. Our gallery provides the Zurich public and global netizens with critical insights into the timely issues, new art tendencies, and cultural identities. Our exhibition program aims to transcend the stereotypes and linguistic barriers, vocalizing artists’ responses to humanitarian crises in our age.
"The root “escape” refers to the evasion of something undesirable or fight from confinement. It can also be a form of a temporary distraction from reality and routine. On the contrary of “escapism,” ESCAPEMENT ART does not rush towards an exit in phantasies, but progresses continuously towards an understanding of the reality. Exactly like an escapement linkage in a mechanical watch."
Gallerist, MA from University of Zurich with focus on the eco-art in East Asia; Expertise in modern and contemporary art incl. provenance research.
