For sure Kissthedesign is one of the most edgy places for contemporary art in Lausanne. Until May 28th, the Lausanne gallery and shop showcases Christophe Lambert, Swiss artist. It is a very interesting exhibition in which Christophe Lambert displayed several art pieces. It is called LIFE IS SWEET PART 2. It refers as well to the PART 1 that was showcased at Art-Etage in Bienne. The work of Christophe Lambert feeds much of the history, mythology, war, art history, as current trends that draws equally in the news, Hollywood productions or in more confidential alternative creations. Daesh, mass culture, the cute little heroes of our childhood, even the children themselves, the evil murderers, hardcore metal bands, the products of the entertainment industry, all end up in the explosive universe of the artist. The binary notion of good and evil loses all meaning here.

The artistic purpose here shows an universe deviant but enjoyable, where cardboard paste decorations mimic a parallel reality and recontextualize imaginary worlds licensed. Christophe Lambert, life is sweet and shows the smiling face of family portraits, but the worst is to come.

The Biel-based artist, Christophe Lambert, signs here his third solo exhibition at Kissthedesign. Confirmed Artist , active on the Swiss and European art scene for over 10 years, he developed a distinctive style, inspired as much by the punk imagery by consumerist myths, cultural or chivalrous. Snow White on acid, serial killer spree, Bambi lewd, fluorescent Apocalypse, the world of the artist exposes a smiling facade on which transpires absurd postures and total anarchy.
