Charcoal and flowers! On Saturday, the Jura Museum of Arts in Moutier opens two new exhibitions that enhance nature. The first pays tribute to Ignacio Ruiz, Provost master of charcoal who died last year. With his black-white works inspired by photographs, the viewer never contemplates a distant, cold landscape. The artist immerses it in the foreground, sometimes in the movement of a river or the rustling of tree leaves. According to the museum curator, his work can be understood in two stages: “seen from a distance, his works are strikingly realistic, and when you get closer, you see the powdery and velvety side of the charcoal. »

The second exhibition is called “Flowers from the Collection”. As its name suggests, once a year, the museum releases certain works from its collection according to a chosen theme. For Mélanie Devaud, the curator at the Jura Museum of Arts in Moutier, it is a question of bringing these flowers into dialogue around different styles, artists and techniques, while shedding light on their universal language and their symbolism both from life, beauty, but also death and impermanence.

The two exhibitions “Ignacio Ruiz” and “Fleurs de la Collection” can be seen at the Jura Museum of Arts in Moutier from June 23 to November 10. As for the opening, it will open its doors this Saturday, June 22 at 5 p.m. /oza
