Léon Wuidar. À perte de vue
Practising an art that has been built up assiduously and not without a few notes of humour, in the house designed for him in the 1970s by the architect Charles Vandenhove, for whom he has also created certain artistic integrations, the Liège artist Léon Wuidar has produced a body of work that is as coherent as it is surprising. After the Museum Haus Konstruktiv in Zurich, the MACS is staging a major retrospective which brings together a number of his paintings, collages and sketchbooks created between 1962 and the present day. With its title À perte de vue (As Far as the Eye Can See), the exhibition emphasises the immense labyrinth of his oeuvre, as well as the “smiling rigour” of an artist who plays with lines and colours, words and objects.
