Dorothée Elisa Baumann invites her father Martin Baumann to her exhibition. Paintings titled "Wind Poems" by Dorothée are on display outside. Wind Poems were created in the spring of 2022 on the roof of a building in New York City. The strong wind in New York City reminds Dorothée of the wind in Gunten, Switzerland, where she lives in the family home. There is a wind blowing over Lake Thun, especially in the afternoon during the summer months. Inside, one is immersed in the projection of the painting of her father, Martin. An interplay of primal forms and primary colors - circles, angular shapes and colors as the basic structure and play for any form of representation of the living. This authentic language of the father runs through his entire oeuvre. Martin's works were created between 1970 and 1975, the years in which his daughter was born.Both the father and the daughter have a deep relationship with nature.

 
The father uses the language of abstract painting for this, while the daughter breaks new ground in her artistic practice by co-creating with natural actors, the living, in her works.
