Ornela VORPSI, Le livre d’Angelica
Opening Thursday September 12 2013, 6 pm
Exhibition : September 12 – October 2013

Analix Forever is proud to present the first solo show in Geneva by the Albanian artist Ornela Vorpsi.


Ornela Vorpsi graduated from The Brera Academy in 1997, where her work was immediately noticed by Gianni Romano, who served as a curator for Analix Forever in the early years of the gallery. Her photographic work was published as a monograph under the title Nothing Obvious by Scalo in 2001, and was selected by Harald Szeemann for « Blood and Honey », in Vienna in 2003.

The artist currently lives and works in Paris, and besides her painting (Peintures, entre autres;
I’m an artist, and sometimes, I use paint, 2008), drawings (« November Trees and Other Dreams », 2006), and photographic work (« Art is Fashion », 2011) – she also became one of the 35 most recognized fiction writers in Europe. After writing several books in Italian, she is publishing her first novel in French with Gallimard in 2014.

« Le livre d’Angelica » is her first children book. From girly dreams to sensual cats, from ludicrous plays to Wittgenstein’s tomb, the viewer doubts that this « Ornela in Wonderland » story is really meant for children. The tiny Geneva gallery will transform into a book, and Vorpsi’s drawings and writings enchant us – while in the mezzanine, the photographs of Szeemann’s times will allow us to penetrate more deeply in the highly diverse, often cruel and always aesthetic world of the artist.
