Eva Aeppli, the soul is in purgatory

"I must tell you about Eva Aeppli, because without her I could not have become constructive and existed [...], I was forced to face this woman who thought only of self-destruction and disappearance." These words of Jean Tinguely in 1983 are one of the rare testimonies of a life and work in the form of the myth of Orpheus, struggling with a darkness that has veiled its knowledge. Under the spotlights and shadows of Jean Kalman - to whom we owe the lights of her shows with Christian Boltanski and Franck Krawczyk - the Centre Pompidou-Metz takes us into the purgatory that Eva Aeppli wove throughout her life by studding it with the works of those closest to her.

Extract from the article of Tom Laurent published in the issue 102 of the magazine Art Absolument, published on July 12, 2022.
