With its numerous art exhibitions and musical performances, FLON ART has once again highlighted the creative vibes in the Quartier du Flon, in Lausanne. Showcasing art in all its forms, this 6th edition has bought its share of artistic discoveries signed by promising talents, confirmed artists and experienced craftsmen. Many of them have caught our attention.

In Espace des Télégraphes, the visual artist and engraver Simon Kroug has presented his exhibition Symbiotique reflecting on the human place in nature. His hand-printed linocuts invite the audience to slow down and enter a contemplative state.

Reinventing a raw space into a sleek and elegant showroom, Moyard has celebrated the opening of its new pop-up store where contemporary design and art blend in to create a unique atmosphere. Showcasing its own furniture collection designed by Singal Mösch and Oloom among others, as well as international interior brands, the shop also exhibits artworks by Tonatiuh Ambrosetti, Daniela Droz, Flynn Maria Bergmann, Simon Deppierraz and Marc Mussler.

Moyard pop-up store is open on Wednesday to Friday 4-7pm, and on Saturday 11am- 6pm.

With its show entitled I was a galactic wienerli, the art collective Le Salon has taken over Espace abstract. Gathered for this astonishing exhibition, 16 photographers present their work, leading thus the visitors into this intriguing world. The Show runs until July 1st.

Playing with light and shadow, the artists Liza Trottet and Neal Byrne Jossen have dressed up the Cubes situated along the Voie-du-Chariot. Until September 10, this Cosmologie serie displays different patterns and colours that give consistency to these exhibition windows, transforming thus the support into the artwork itself.

For the occasion, many craftsmen and painters have opened the doors of their creative studio to the public. In the workshop of artist Jacques Walther, paintings and sculptures perfectly complete each other.
