JULIUS BAER ‘A JOURNEY DRAWN THROUGH AN ARCHEOLOGY OF THE PRESENT’

Swiss Private Banking Group, Julius Baer commissioned Chourouk Hriech, a French emerging artist of Moroccan origin, to create and curate ‘A Journey Drawn Through an Archaeology of the Present’, an exhibition with a focus on creating a bridge between Switzerland and Dubai and charting the bank’s growth story. The artist is known to draw exclusively in black and white. For ‘A Journey Drawn Through an Archeology of the Present’, she presented contemporary yet almost fable-like artworks, which are sometimes retro-futuristic sometimes timeless, and transported the audience through the unexpected strata of an archaeology of the present.
