Locus Solus Prilly

near. meets Locus Solus. In mid-January 2017, a new art place was born in Catherine Monney's private apartment. Between 1987 and 1991 the now gallery owner  held the legendary artist-run space M2, in Vevey with well-known artists from the French-speaking scene such as Alain Huck, Robert Ireland, Jean Crotti and Jean-Luc Manz. Today, Catherine Monney offers her walls to artists who love to read. Each exhibition is thus accompanied by two events related to literature, art or theater.
