Nothing predicted that Anton Hirschfeld, a young man with a mental disability, would one day become a well-known artist. Anton’s Journey retraces his trajectory, filmed from birth by his mother.

Discovered thanks to the writer Nancy Huston, he is one of the youngest artists represented by the gallery. With his cursive writing, Anton Hirschfeld meshes lists of names, playlists or guests in processional columns, to form the unexpected frame of his works.

First presented to the public in 2017 at the gallery, in march 2023, it was the subject of a documentary entitled “Le Voyage d’Anton” directed by Mariana Loupan with Schuch production.
