The Quiet Eye is a selection of colour photographs by Felicitas Vogler (1922–2006), which are showing for the first time, as well as paintings and drawings by Ben Nicholson (1894–1982). The latter were bequeathed to the Kunstmuseum Bern by Felicitas Vogler. The artworks in the exhibition seem somehow interrelated without being the result of any artistic collaboration in the strict sense. They generate a two-dimensional and nuanced atmospheric density that oscillates between representation and abstraction. The landscapes become spaces that echo moods and own states of mind. They are part of a world of interwoven things that interconnect with beholders too. This is a “world of light”, as suggested in the German title of Vogler‘s illustrated volume lichte Welt.
