The exhibition “Durch das Pfauenauge” by Parisian artist Gwen van den Eijnde (born 1981) opens at the Kunst Raum Riehen one day before the Museum Night. “Le lion habillé en fleur,” “Pam-Pam,” and “L'obélisque” are three of the fictional figures at the center of his exhibition. These figures, steeped in Greek mythology or Japanese Kabuki of the Edo era, continue the tradition of metamorphic characters, while their French titles evoke the Parisian tradition of Haute Couture.
