The Suspects consists of 110 collages by Agnès Wyler, created between 1987 and 2015: a loosely arranged sequence or – more ominously – ordered by the laws of chance. This artist has a light hand, not only does she juggle with selection and succession, she juggles techniques as well as thoughts, the visual and the pun, dead aim hitting the bull’s eye – or was it just a lucky shot? Mischievously she creates a happy chaos out of snippets, objets trouvés, personal notes, biographic rubble and sour memories, cryptic messages, and a tossed salad of words – all this becomes “collage.
Here everything is permitted, all is possible, and the impossible is the program. You, esteemed beholder and reader, are crossing a minefield of ingenuity. (Guido Magnaguagno)
