Tom Hackney: The Thought Game (le jeu mental)
Kunsthalle Marcel Duchamp, Cully
20 November - 22 January 2017
Tom Hackney’s works are directly related to Marcel Duchamp’s concept of the instantaneous state of rest but in a style of painting characteristic of the Zürich Concrete artists, not only giving the idea of ‘movement’ a new dimension but also embracing a fruitful reason for the appropriation or reanimation of abstract painting today. Stefan Banz, 2016
