The Espace Jean Tinguely - Niki de Saint Phalle is a stroke of luck: In the high-ceilinged rooms of the disused tram depot in the heart of town, the rattling work of art by Fribourg-born Jean Tinguely is a great sight to see. Similarly, the lush "Nanas" (female sculptures) by his wife Niki de Saint Phalle delight the eye too.
As they rattle and clatter, wheeze and pant, the sophisticated and dynamic works of art by the artist Jean Tinguely exert an extraordinary fascination on viewers. And you could spend hours here trying to understand the complex mechanics, the likes of which are second to none.
Inside the Espace Tinguely it’s easy to see time while away - as the spacious, bright room of the disused tram depot, which is located just a few steps from the cathedral, invites you to linger. Anyone who has then seen enough of Tinguely's infernal machines can admire the beautifully round and harmonious shaped sculptures of his wife Niki de Phalle. Also exciting are the regular exhibitions that present additional artists in a dialogue with the works of Jean Tinguely or his wife, Niki de Saint Phalle.
