“Desapareció el pez mientras nació su recuerdo entre un infinito azul y las pepitas escupidas de una sandía de agosto,” dice el autor sobre la exposición. Leimbacher mostrará a través de pinturas, figuras, objetos e intermedios una exposición diversa, un ‘variado’ de recuerdos y miradas que abarcará temas y vistas de carices diferentes, convergentes entre si, desde la gastronomía hasta los demonios, pasando por mar y tierra y por el surrealismo del día a día.” (exhibition text)

“… Majorca has some excellent galleries showing local and international art, and you might be able to catch work by a Swiss artist who exhibits here regularly, Arti Leimbacher.

He’s part of a network of artists who are making some very exciting connections between Majorca and the art community at large.  His exhibition, Memories d’un turista, was one of the most exciting events in the cultural community here.  Drawing on some of the basic tenets of surrealism, and depicting an interior world looking at Majorca from an outsider’s perspective, his sculptural works are terribly haunting, drawing on the themes of memory and gastronomy…” (fuzzybus.com/25.9.2009)
