Pfastatt’Art: a contemporary art fair like no other | m2a magazine

An extraordinary exhibition

Organized for many years by the city of Pfastatt and the Municipal Office for Sports, Arts and Leisure (OMSAL), the exhibition Pfastatt’Art brings together a panel of professional artists around a specific theme every two years. For this edition, it is contemporary art, and more particularly street and pop arts, that are in the spotlight. And for the occasion, the famous Mulhouse sculptor David Zeller has generously agreed to sponsor the event.

“ZED, our sponsor for this edition, is well known in the region and far beyond. His success is mainly due to his Flexos, little men made of Plexiglas, steel or bronze, who embody the Human in all his universality. We are very happy to have him with us this year.” explains Elisabeth Ellerbach, painter and collagist and city councilor in charge of culture in Pfastatt.

Professional artists with varied works.

If the circles of pop art and street art share the same interest in colorful creations, the themes and materials differ, at the service of an originality whose secret only these fields hold. The artists then manage to distinguish themselves by their respective singularities. While the Pfastattois Sabri Hajheri advocates emotion in her paintings, Annabelle Amory tries rather to match her deep convictions with the world around her, associating collages and painting.

As for the sculptors, Anne-Catherine Muller offers an enigmatic imaginary world, oscillating between mythology and the sacred, while Éric Junod strives to re-enchant wood marked by time, in a logic of recycling.

A moment of conviviality

But what makes the particularity of Pfastatt’Art, is above all its ease of use. In a space of intimate proportions, the proximity between artists and public is facilitated. The visit becomes conducive to exchanges, discussions and meetings, which give full meaning to the event.
