Archives Regine Kolle — Tropical Wool Past: October 24 → November 23 Regine Kolles’ ten new paintings are not on friendly terms with one another. The fault lies neither with the Axolotl, a small lovable amphibian staring back with big curious eyes, its legs glued to the canvas, nor the gazing Blue Ink Elephant.
Archives Julien Beneyton — A toute épreuve Past: September 7 → October 19 In his new exhibition “A toute épreuve”, Julien Beneyton proposes four group portraits with different contents and ambitions, forming together a remarkably unified ensemble. All the scenes take place outside, not in full nature, but with the city and its concrete monuments of urbanization as a setting.
Archives Elodie Lesourd — Musical Perforation Past: March 23 → May 11 A new installation, seven new paintings, a series of drawings, “Musical Perforation” confronts us with extremes, contradictions and violence, skims their surface with a clever caress. We must penetrate the skin, this authentic animal part, to reach the very essence and create a form of ritual in the most ghostly automatisms.
Archives Henri’s Dream Past: February 9 → March 16 The artists invited for this exhibition clearly share common visions. The power of intelligence, the inevitability of death and the shift of the unexpected: three concepts against which, according to Bergson, nature fights and religion is based. Three “virtues” that form the singularity of the works presented here and the reason for their gathering in pack.
Archives Paranoïa déambulatoire Past: December 1, 2012 → January 12, 2013 Towards this generalized “deambulatory paranoia”, some artists have decided to show a tacit resistance, an act of renunciation shaped as a stop. Neither sit-in nor immobilism, even less a denial to move on, but the shared will to pause in the history. Take the time, suddenly to realize.
Archives Lionel Scoccimaro — Sérendipité, de la nécessité du voyage Past: October 19 → November 24, 2012 Lionel Scoccimaro’s new exhibition owes nothing to chance. We naturally meet again with the ghosts of minimalism; once respected, only to be abused, nailed, decorative or mocked. But it is precisely in his pretend irony, that he pays the most beautiful homage possible to this movement’s pure energy, to its chilling ferocity and henceforth embalmed.
Archives Pierre Petit Past: September 8 → October 13, 2012 In the work of Pierre Petit, the memories the most diverse mix, with the genuine pleasure, imagination with reality. He plays with objects and images to reach the surface of our eyes, the newspaper, now insignificant, but significant, the common object, which is unusual.
Archives Grégory Cuquel — From beyond Past: June 21 → July 28, 2012 Gregory Cuquel’s approach acts metaphorically on its production: he develops his art from items that nobody wants, but as they are transformed into art these items are brought into another life. Once acquired by a collector or institution, these combinations of materials that no one wanted become the objects of much attention and care.
Archives Donatello parmi les fauves Past: May 10 → June 16, 2012 With Donatello parmi les fauves, the artists share this complete awareness of a belonging, a fundamental belonging to their time. They express a presence in the world which is neither directed to its disenchantment, or its re-enchantment, but to its exposure. They reveal the voluntary disengagement of the historic fauves.
Archives Alex Da Corte — Night Chat- exposition prolongée Past: January 7 → March 10, 2012 For his first solo exhibition in France, Alex Da Corte presents new work inspired by Halloween, John Carpenter’s 1979 horror classic, the story of The Shape who stalks babysitters in Haddonfield, Illinois.
Archives Julien Beneyton — Remember That Past: December 2 → 31, 2011 The unveiling that Julien Beneyton recalls in this series is not only a story of lifted clothes. Twenty-four paintings like twenty-four portraits, and shared memories. He paints the flesh, what it says and what it remembers. He reveals the soul inked in the body.
Archives Entre d’Eux — Julien Beneyton invite Oxmo Puccino Past: June 30 → July 16, 2011 Oxmo Puccino, poète et chanteur, dévoile son regard à travers l’appareil photographique. Julien Beneyton, peintre, a bien compris qu’au désenchantement du monde répondait une poésie de la lumière. A l’origine, tous les deux viennent du rap et partagent cette même terre cultivée.
Archives Elodie Lesourd — Modern escapism Past: March 12 → April 24, 2011 Le concept global de l’exposition sera l’exploration de la mélancolie au travers de la musique, avec des thématiques récurrentes comme la destruction, la disparition et la mort. Mais le titre laisse entrevoir quelque chose de plus positif, comme une volonté de dépasser le mal (peut être par le mal lui-même finalement…).
Archives Je représente — Julien Beneyton Past: January 8 → February 19, 2011 Fascinated by hip hop culture, Julien Beneyton puts all the energy which he draws from this cultural and musical movement in the service of his creation, taking on the representative’s position to deliver his overview/low-down of the current world.It is no accident if the exhibition is entitled “ I represent ”
Archives Désirs Archaïques — Exposition collective Past: November 27 → December 31, 2010 The galerie present young artists from the New York art scene. New York is a laboratory tuned to the future: from its telluric ground emanate vibes of consciousness that infuse its artistic creation. Like a chameleon moved by desires and challenges, this surprising and vivifying city under goes continual metamorphoses to maintain access between two worlds.
Archives Joey Haley — Paintings and drawings Past: October 21 → November 20, 2010 What is so fascinating in Joey Haley’s work is that he is the only one capable of bringing together Dave Davies, outstanding guitarist of the Kinks and Albert Einstein, outstanding physicist of relativity. All three agree on the notion of distortion.
