(Introduction/translation) 'Switzerland's contribution to the 36th Venice Biennale is placed under the sign of confrontation: the presentation of a painter and a sculptor sheds light on two different aspects of contemporary art in Switzerland. While for the painter Richard Paul Lohse, it is a question of the consecration of the rich and mature work of a lifetime, the sculptor Willy Weber, for his part, reports the state of a work still in full swing. evolution. The exhibition is, however, not only the confrontation of two generations, but the confrontation of two conceptions. At Lohse, meticulous organization of the work, which does not remain isolated, being part of a series which obeys the same principles. At Weber, on the other hand, thoughtful use of a powerful force put at the service of the creative deformation of industrial materials, plates and pipes in chrome steel...' Willy Rotzler
