Emma Kunz – Visionary Drawings: An exhibition conceived with Christodoulos Panayiotou
This catalogue accompanies the first solo exhibition in the UK of Swiss healer, researcher and artist Emma Kunz (1892–1963) at the Serpentine Galleries, London (23 March – 19 May, 2019) which was conceived in collaboration with artist Christodoulos Panayiotou. The exhibition will tour to Muzeum Susch, Switzerland (26 July – 10 November 2019). Kunz discovered her gifts of extra-sensory perception at an early age and dedicated her life to researching the restorative energies of plants and minerals. From 1938, with the aid of her diving pendulum, she began making large-scale, abstract and geometric drawings. These were made primarily to support her divination and healing practice, yet Kunz predicted that her legacy of over 400 drawings would be seen and appreciated by future generations. Illustrating over 65 works this book designed by Roland Brauchli includes texts by Dawn Ades, Bice Curiger, Desmond Morris, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Tabita Rezaire and Ali Smith.
