Discover The Espace Jean Tinguely - Niki de Saint Phalle Switzerland

If you are planning on visiting Fribourg, don't miss one of the places dedicated to two important artists from the 20th century: Jean Tinguely and Niki de Saint Phalle. A former tramway depot, where some remaining pieces of tramways can still be seen, houses the 'Espace Jean Tinguely - Niki de Saint Phalle', where the original works of these two geniuses are exhibited. Love and work intertwine in this splendid atmosphere of culture and creations which are really worth taking the time to see. The centre is also home to other temporary exhibitions. In terms of the career of French sculptor Niki de Saint Phalle, a representative of the Pop Art movement, visitors can see her work Relief monumental. As for Swiss artist Jean Tinguely, his highlighted piece of work is the Retable de l'abondance occidentale et du mercantilisme totalitaire (Altar of Western Abundance and Totalitarian Consumerism), comprised of mobile creations which come to life thanks to mechanisms which cause them to move at regular intervals.

Just next to the 'Espace Jean Tinguely - Niki de Saint Phalle' is the not-to-be-missed Museum of Art and History Fribourg.
