Curating


2021

Artists : Elvire Blanc Briand, Léa Dumayet, Gaëtan Kohler, Emanuele Ravagnani, Morgane Porcheron, Paul Sauviron, Pauline Toyer.
>> Format Cabine is a collective project built around the notion of travel and displacement. The artists, at the initiative of the exhibition, were awarded the François de Hatvany collective project grant in 2017, and shared the Atelier Le Midi, in Montreuil.

2019

March – June
– Sortir de la guerre par la guerre, Victoire Thierrée, à l’invitation de Isabelle de Maison Rouge, Salon Turbulences.
>> The works selected by 8 art critics are presented online on a digital platform and IRL during meetings with the artist.
Victoire Thierrée developed an approach based on military survival strategies in hostile environments. His approach tends to recover the place of the human and the body through the aesthetic choices made by the army to go beyond the limits of the humain.

March 29-31
– . . ., exposition personnelle de Haythem Zakaria, L’Antichambre Acte I à l’invitation de Alta Volta, Hôtel de la Nouvelle République, Paris.
>> Neither a show nor an exhibition, this is l’Antichambre, an event dedicated to drawing and the extension of the gesture.
Haythem Zakaria’s metronome drawings blend into the setting of a hotel room, in a strident and captivating sound atmosphere. The artist’s gesture becomes an extension of the mechanical tool and the regular metric. Gradually, the brain becomes free and repetition becomes the expression of a moment of meditation.

2018

May 4 – June 16
– Darkroom in Use, solo show de Matthieu Boucherit à la Galerie Valérie Delaunay, Paris.
>> By transforming the gallery into a laboratory, Matthieu Boucherit moves the darkroom to another level, not technical or economic, but clinical. The black box whose opaque operation is to be penetrated then concerns another device for processing perception and memory…

April 28 – June 16
– B l ob !, Galerie Bertrand Grimont, Paris.
Artists : Vincent Mauger, Nelson Pernisco, Victoire Thierrée, Anne-Charlotte Yver.
>> The blob is neither a fungus, nor a plant, nor an animal. He is not male or female, and has a choice between 221 sexes. The works have the character of the blob, without being an illustration of it. They come alive, while remaining inert, gently colonize surfaces, aiming to adapt to their environment to better understand or reconfigure it.

February 10 – 28
– Avant la poussière, à l’invitation du projet Under The Sand, Lieu unique, Nantes.
Artists : Minhee Kim, Amélie Labourdette, Dominique Leroy, Wilfried Nail, Pascale Rémita, Benoit Travers.
>> » Avant la poussière » follows the last cycle of residencies of the Under the Sand project. The rhythms of a residence in an unknown territory, eager to discover the realities buried under the sand, are followed by other logics of the gaze, other temporalities. Rather than exceptional remains, the traces and modest clues of a collective life are preferred.

>> « Newwwar. It’s just a Game? » takes as its starting point the complex apparatus that supports the visibility of war, making it an almost fictional device, where fantasy, play and the manipulation of affects reign.

Artists : Ghyslain Bertholon, AJ Dirtystein, Cécile Hug, Inès Kubler, Frédérique Loutz, Erik Nussbicker, Lionel Sabatté, Barthélémy Toguo, Valérie Vaubourg, Elodie Wysocki.
>> For « Cannibalism Animalime », the works are displayed alongside the furniture of a bourgeois apartment as well as the instruments of a medical practice. Immersed in a subdued atmosphere, they tell their own story of domestication, from room to room. Staged on the borderline between decorative and utilitarian, the works nevertheless exercise a critical perspective.
