Drawing Now Paris 2011 — Galeries françaises

Past: March 25 → 28, 2011
AD Gallery, Béziers
AD gallery presents Hervé Di Rosa’s one-man show with a new series of drawings especially created for this edition as well as historic drawings.
AL/MA Gallery, Montpellier
Since 2002, the Gallery AL/MA presents works in different media (painting, volume or video) favouring abstraction. In his solo exhibition, Didier Demozay proposes a set of drawings, each consisting of a few marks, either dry lines drawn with a pencil or wide and colorful painted gestures recording a shape — often an angle or a square. With their repetitive and parallel lines, Eve Gramatzki’s drawings initiate a reflection on the notion of duration; while Janós Ber’s drawing exploits the idea of disappearance, the erasure of the line. Vladimir Skoda’s work on paper resumes his sculptor’s constant questioning around the sphere. Olivier Fillipi presents felt pen drawings, interrupted lines, too broad for the sheet of paper out which they burst. The selection of artists presented here extends the reflection led by Gallery AL/MA on the capacity of the drawing to produce meaning, without relying on a narrative or a representation of the real.
