Until June 8: Max Neumann & Max Mertens, Galerie Clairefontaine

Saarbrücken artist Max Neumann focuses on the human shape and shadows in his paintings, which evoke a dream-like atmosphere, asking the audience to fill the narrative gaps and image a world for the empty faces depicted on canvas. Neumann's works are shown at the Espace 1 in Place de Clairefontaine. Max Mertens works, on display at the Espace 2 in Rue du St Esprit, take everyday objects placed in another context to comment on our everyday habits.
