The exhibition Hayawan brings together recent bronze sculptures by the Swiss artist Harumi Klossowska de Rola, drawing inspiration from the animal kingdom. Displayed in the tranquil setting of the Protestant Church of St. Moritz, the sculptures evoke deities from ancient civilisations while offering a meditation upon the power and grace of the natural world. Harumi takes inspiration from the flora and fauna that she encounters in the forests near her home in Rossinière, as well as from her profound interest in ancient civilisations such as the Egyptians and the Incas. From noble cheetahs to dainty birds, the sculptures exhibit a sensitivity to the physical and spiritual essence of the animals they portray. Around the walls of the church juxtaposing these sculptures are a selection of works by 20th-century masters, including an exquisite paintings by Picasso and Miró and two Fontana tagli.
