Psx 20181206 132513 1 grid Marion Verboom — Galerie Jérôme Poggi La galerie Poggi présente jusqu'au 12 janvier Ester, la seconde exposition personnelle de l'artiste Marion Verboom (née en 1983). 2 - Bien Critique

For its second exhibition dedicated to Marion Verboom, Jérôme Poggi gallery is pleased to partner with LVMH Métiers d’Art to close the artist-in-residence program offered to Marion Verboom in the Manifatturia Thélios in Italy during the first semester 2018.

Under Léa Chauvel-Lévy’s direction (curator of the exhibition), LVMH Métiers d’Art has been inviting artists-in-residence for three years in different production sites of the LVMH group.
Confronting artists to specific savoir-faire and raw materials that are essential to fashion Houses and fine leather goods is an opportunity for an artistic project to flourish, fed by the relationship with expert artisans in sector-leading manufactures.
A chance for LVMH to support an emerging artist in its creative process as well as to stimulate innovation within its own crafts.

Thélios, new entity specialized in eyewear for the LVMH Group’s companies ensures integral product monitoring, from the initial design to the final steps of distribution.
Combining cutting-edge technology and unique know-how, Thélios promotes innovation as well as tradition.

This six month immersion at Thélios resulted in an ensemble of fifteen works that Marion Verboom produced through her experimentations with acetate, a fundamental component to eyewear manufacture which presents a great plastic potential, particularly inspiring for the artist.

This group of artworks created during the residency will be exhited at the gallery from the 1st of December 2018 to the 12th of January 2019. Marion Verboom’s experience at Thélios will be published in an artist book by Éditions RVB Books, which will be presented at the gallery. The publication will include a text by the American art critic Mara Hoberman as well as  Alexandre Guirkinger, Antoine Vanoverschelde and Nicolas Brasseur.
