Conversation with Vivian Greven

Markus Stegmann, Director of the Museum Langmatt, in conversation with the artist.
On 17/06/2021
Vivian Greven (*1985 in Bonn, lives in Düsseldorf) is a highly-regarded young German artist. In the past years, her suggestive pictures have been shown in numerous exhibitions both at home and abroad. In this exhibition – her first Swiss solo exhibition – the artist offers an intense insight into her current work in the Museum Langmatt.

Vivian Greven draws her figures from antiquity and the Renaissance. Affection and injury, romanticism and cool distance are the diametrically opposed poles within her artworks. The figures appear to shine from the inside, as if they are inhabited by a mysterious and sometimes almost religious energy. Her pictures possess an incomparable, positively auratic radiance, and, at the same time, an extraordinary timelessness. Vivian Greven impressively demonstrates just how touching and existential painting can be in the present day.
