Espace Jean Tinguely - Niki de Saint Phalle

Interesting
The former tram depot has been turned into a home for work by two famous artists and temporary exhibitions. Niki de Saint Phalle created Relief monumental, for this space, an allusion to the Fribourg years of Tinguely, who was born in the town. In the centre of the room, the main piece is the Retable de l'abondance occidentale et du mercantilisme totalitaire, by Tinguely, which moves at regular times.
