Poggi, Bertoux associés / Objet de production

Poggi & Bertoux associés gallery, by devoting its booth to Bertrand Lamarche’s drawings, concurrently with a major one-man show in his name at the gallery, pursues its exploration of the very notion of drawing, in its most contemporary aspects.

Besides his preparatory sketches that at times take on very accomplished forms — as revealed in his study for his recent installation at the Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent or his architectural drawings — it is “between the lines” that is enacted his relationship with drawing, taking on digital, indeed heliographic or photogenic, shapes, drawn with “the pencil of nature”, to recapture the expression by pioneer of photography William Fox Talbot.

A collection of graphic works by Philippe Caurant and Dominique Furgé will round out this panorama of contemporary drawing, alongside some rare works on paper from the 1970s by Dutch artist Kees Visser.

Eric Dupont Gallery

Where is drawing going? To this recurrent question, I want to answer : “We can’t stop it, drawing goes everywhere”.

The proof is in the proteanpractices of numerous artists who have for some time been expanding drawing’s province towards other domains, such as sculpture, video and, of course, photography, for example Etienne-Jules Marey’s photos of smoke, dating from 1874.

Yazid Oulab uses barbed wire, defining with a single twist the image that he wants to create: a nail, a hand, an animal. The shadows of the mobile sculptures by Clement Bagot and Didier Mencoboni draw random shapes on the walls that surround them, incessantly changing by playing subtly with a look that wants to embrace them all at once. In the centre of the stand, Siobhan Liddell sets on a table graphic elements that were left in the studio; she manipulates, cuts and twists them, and in so doing the drawing becomes space.

Maria Lund Gallery

Female landscapes maintain the long commitment between Galerie Maria Lund and drawing in its most diverse forms, from the simple line and application of fluid matter to cut-outs and the creation of volume.

This project confronts female landscapes from artists of different origins: Catherine Maria Chapel (France), Elle-Mie Ejdrup Hansen (Denmark), Lyndi Sales (South Africa) and Yoo Hye-Sook (Korea) around a one-woman-show by Min Jung-Yeon (Korea). This multiplicity of views explores sometimes ambiguous territories, appealing to our senses.

In her own way, Min Jung-Yeon takes us into a personal world, bathed in great sensuality, where her anxieties and desires are revealed. If her universe reminds us of the Surrealists, above all it is one belonging to a contemporary woman who has integrated two very different cultures and the virtual imagery born from digital technology.

Galerie Catherine Putman

The Catherine Putman gallery is specialized in works on paper of contemporary artists.

The gallery will present a one-man show of Alvaro Oyarzun, a chilean self-taught artist born in 1960. He constantly produces series of drawings made on colored papers, combined to create a narration with no apparent order. The artist considers caricature and self-mockery as analysis tools to question the artist’s character, helplessly facing the contemporary art world contradictions. Some of Alvaro Oyarzun’s drawings will be shown at Je te mange, tu me manges, an exhibition standing at La maison rouge in Paris from February to May.

The gallery will also display some recent drawings of Champion Métadier, Carmen Perrin, Frédéric Poincelet and Georges Rousse.
