Christian Niccoli is mostly known for his cinematographic work in the twilight zone between art and film. Few knows that he also draws. For the first time a selection of Niccoli’s drawings are shown in an exhibition.
Christian Niccoli’s work derives from a sharp self-observation as well as from the observation of strangers, friends, family. The focus of these observations is the condition of individuals in a context such as family or partnership, but also in a situation of lostness and loneliness.
In his films and drawings Christian Niccoli investigates the desires, wishes and fears related with our being alone or with others and analyzes how we manage to find our own psychological stability.
