Pour que les murs se souviennent

Past: May 10 → June 23, 2012

After 22 years’ work at 70 rue Bonaparte, I’ve decided to move, to change the walls of the gallery. In order to put an end to this amazing adventure I wish to offer an entertaining and atypical exhibition miles away from the commercial and cultural ways for the gallery’s daily activities.

Co-thought out with Sylvain Sorgato, this final event consists in 13 artists’ works with a common aim at accepting and supporting their mural status. No canvas and stuffs, no screw or nail, the exhibition lives in the premises and results in a frontal dialogue. The art work is right there, raw, decisive like the direct consequence of artistic acts requiring an economy of rigour with no repent.

Even after having been painted anew, tattooed, marked like transfers, the walls will remember. Because you cannot erase this kind of intervention, you just cover it. For another destiny, underneath several coats of paint, such work will always stay in our minds.
It may be exhibited somewhere else but it will never be exactly as we remember it.

Now that I have made this appointment with you, I am going to jump the wall.
