Château d'Oiron

Noémie Goudal, Charbel Samuel Aoun, Tiphaine Calmettes, Anne-Charlotte Finel, Laurent Tixador, Capucine Vever

From June 26 to October 02, 2022

Curator : Patrice Joly 

The “event horizon” is a term taken from astrophysics. It designates the limit of what is visible before the extreme density of the black hole that this horizon borders prevents light from escaping. Like many scientific expressions, this one has a literary connotation that makes one think more of an esoteric formula, a weather documentary or a disaster movie… Which is indeed the case: Event Horizon, the movie, retraces the winding path of a team of American scientists and military personnel in search of a ship lost on the edge of a black hole. This B-movie, which has become a cult, gathers all the clichés of the adventure film, which it mixes with a metaphysics of counterpart such as that one generally associates with the mysterious objects which populate the universe and give rise to the most unbridled speculations.


Gare Saint-Sauveur – Lille, France

Art orienté objet

From May 14 to October 2, 2022

In his latest book, the English scientist James Lovelock announces a new era, the Novacene, which will succeed our current era, the Anthropocene, marked by climatic and environmental upheavals caused by human activity.

Nearly 50 years after his hypothesis, Gaia, which asserted that the Earth is a living being, this famous English environmentalist optimistically predicts a positive relationship between man and the environment, aided by technology. The Novacene exhibition, which takes place in all the spaces of the Gare Saint Sauveur, is part of this post-anthropocene utopia and reveals its signs.

The artists presented are the avant-garde of a new civilization in the making. Seismographers of the last tremors of a hyper carbonated world (Allora & Calzadilla, Julian Charrière, Maarten Vanden Eynde), explorers of the subtle kinships between living beings (Fabien Léaustic), alchemists of climatic phenomena (Marie-Luce Nadal, Bigert & Bergstörm, Bianca Bondi), artists place care (Object Oriented Art, Otobong Nkanga), action (Lucy+Jorge Orta), senses (,Zheng Bo, Anna Komarova) at the heart of a reinvested common good, and raise the ethical questions of this next world (Haroon Mirza). In an eco-design approach, Novacene becomes a place of exploration, dream and union at the time of the last chance to have a viable future.

Musée de l'Hospice Comtesse – Lille, France

Art orienté objet, Kate MccGwire

From May 14 to October 2, 2022

In dialogue with the museum’s collections, The Cosmic Snake explores how artists are inspired and nourished by nature and the living to create utopias. A truly immersive and sensory experience to explore differently our place in the world and to awaken the deep connection that unites us to nature, notably through ancestral rites and practices such as shamanism.

Les Rencontres d'Arles – Arles, France

Sandra Rocha

From July 4 to September 25, 2022

Two artists, a common territory. Two visions, one exhibition. Sandra Rocha (mentor) explores the image in all its dimensions, and Perrine Géliot (mentored), designs three-dimensional photographic objects. They form the first duo of Pernod Ricard’s Arts Mentorship program. This multidisciplinary pair travelled to Chiapas, Mexico, where they drew parallels between the history of the Mayan people and the contemporary Anthropocene era. The collapse of one of the most powerful societies of the ancient pre-Columbian civilization at the dawn of the ninth century is believed to be the consequence of overpopulation. The two artists embarked on a journey to the heart of a rich heritage, now overgrown by lush vegetation. It is in this harmonious and ritualized setting where humans, animals, plants and minerals coexist that Sandra Rocha and Perrine Géliot construct a poetic narrative that does away with the course of time. Their immersive exhibition on display at the Commanderie Sainte-Luce will bring together photography, video, sound and sculpture, offering a visual, organic and philosophical experience.


Brownstone Foundation, Paris

from September 3 to 21, 2022

The Brownstone Foundation presents from September 3 to 21 the exhibition LO QUE VI CHILI 1973-2022 by the French-Chilean artist Paz Corona. Composed of three films and a ceramic installation of 1,500 flowers, conceived as a reference to Monet’s Water Lilies, LO QUE VI CHILI 1973-2022 poetically traces Chile’s turbulent history and its inexorable repetition.

Born in Santiago, Chile, Paz Corona emigrated to France at the age of 5 following Pinochet’s coup d’état (1973), only to return there forty years later. Forty years is also the time it took for the Chilean people to take to the streets and rise up. The political events in Chile in October 2019, when many of the films were shot
contingently, have placed this exhibition in a burning actuality. With LO QUE VI CHILI 1973-2022, Paz Corona traces the history of her native country, which she intertwines with her own narrative, a journey of initiation in search of reconciliation. The spectator wanders through this vast metaphor of the cyclical passage of time, to experience and think about what is repeated in history: that of Chile, and that of the world.

KENNY DUNKAN | Dust Specks on the Sea: Contemporary Sculpture from the French Caribbean & Haïti

La Villa du Parc – Annemasse, France

Kenny Dunkan

From June 11 to September 18, 2022

Dust Specks on the Sea – Contemporary Sculpture from the French Caribbean and Haïti presents the works of twenty-six artists from Guadeloupe, Martinique, French Guiana and Haiti. The exhibition features a variety of material and conceptual approaches to the practices of artists from this region of the world, and aims to highlight their participation in a globalized art world while pushing the question of who is at the “center” and who is at the “periphery” to its limits. Conceived from the medium of sculpture, the exhibition presents the artworks in a distinct yet integrated manner to evoke a network of ideas around heritage, history, identity, the social body and politics.


Palais des Congrès, Vichy

Janette Beckman, Katrien De Blauwer, Evelyne Coutas, Antoine d’Agata, Denis Darzacq, Charles Fréger, Renaud Monfourny, Nelli Palomäki, Peter Moore, Malick Sidibé

From June 24 to September 4 2022

Curator: Charlotte Boudon, Marie Magnier

The gallery Les filles du calvaire, led by Charlotte Boudon and Marie Magnier, is swinging the festival this year with a dynamic display that has as its theme the body in motion. From vahines gently undulating under the eye of Charles Fréger to shots of musicians on stage or staged by Évelyne Coutas, Renaud Monfourny or Janette Beckman, from the grammar of gestures of Nelli Palomäki or Katrien de Blauwer to the stunning performances of dancers captured by Denis Darzcq or Peter Moore, all media are required – photos, videos, clips – to bring the public into the dance.


Les Rencontres d'Arles – Arles, France

Katrien De Blauwer

From July 4 to August 28, 2022


Whatever you do, don’t tell Katrien de Blauwer that she makes collages: “Let’s say I’m a photographer without a camera. For me, cutting is comparable to clicking on the shutter release”. She snips, glues, assembles, infringes, colors and handles photographs from the old magazines she collects. Close to photomontage or film editing, her works conceal an intense narrative charge. They are linked to memory and personal history, but, paradoxically, as intimate as they are anonymous, they become the possible scenario of everyone. “What Katrien de Blauwer unearths in her black and white images is the archaeology of ambiguity. She doesn’t cut this ambiguity of desire with a raging knife: on the contrary, it interests her. She works it to the maximum. She refines and sharpens it” (Philippe Azoury). The Pictures She Doesn’t Show to Anyone brings ten years of creation together in a book and an exhibition on an unprecedented scale.


Les Rencontres d'Arles – Arles, France

Noémie Goudal

From July 4 to August 28, 2022

Anchored in ideas around deep time (which can be loosely defined as a geological history of the planet), paleoclimatology (the study of past climates) and relational geographies, Noémie Goudal’s complex and performative series of films and constructed photographs reflect on the inter-connectedness of human and non-human life. Knitting together lush vegetation, rocky coastlines, snow-capped mountains and swamplands, her latest body of work explores spatiotemporal vastness and post-anthropocentric modalities of belonging. Goudal’s poetic film Inhale Exhale, 2021, considers how the Earth is in a state of perpetual movement by depicting an unspecified equatorial landscape that was once part of the arctic environment in a constant state of transition. Meanwhile, her series Phoenix, from which the exhibition takes its name, deploys optical illusion and altered realities to question photography’s indexicality as a marker of truth. Ultimately, Goudal’s theatrical work marks a philosophical shift in our approach to ecology and an awareness of how the Earth’s temporal rhythms are critical for planetary survival.


FOMU – Antwerp, Belgium

Diana Markosian

April 1 to August 28, 2022

FOMU presents the European premiere of the exhibition Santa Barbara by Diana Markosian (Moscow, 1989). In a surprising and deeply moving way, she tells the migration story of her family. Using film, photographs and archive images, Markosian explores the profound sacrifice made by her mother in pursuit of the American dream.

This exhibition is Diana Markosian’s attempt at understanding her mother’s decision that would change their lives forever. Not only by using family photographs, but by re-enacting her childhood years in the form of a soap. For this reconstruction, Markosian cast actors and wrote a script with one of the creators of the original tv series Santa Barbara. Visually, she also drew from the slick aesthetic of television. Markosian’s Santa Barbara is an interplay between the idealized vision of America and the reality of the immigrant experience. Mixing memory and imagination, Markosian pushes the boundaries of documentary photography in an inspiring way.

Diana Markosian is an American artist of Armenian descent. She takes an intimate approach to her photography and video storytelling, in work that is both conceptual and documentary.


Centre Pompidou (Paris), Galerie 4

Paulo Nozolino

From June 8 to August 22, 2022

Dedicated to the Portuguese artists Pedro Costa, Rui Chafes and Paulo Nozolino, this collective exhibition is presented as a renewed dialogue between cinema, sculpture and photography.

Articulated around the installation As filhas do Fogo by Pedro Costa and Rui Chafes, and the film Minino macho, Minino fêmea by Pedro Costa accompanied by a series of photographs by Paulo Nozolino, the exhibition is thought as a mental and immersive journey. Invited to wander through a voluntarily labyrinthine space plunged into darkness, the public experiences a complex collective work conceived at the crossroads of the plastic interrogations of these three artists engaged, over the years, in a fruitful collaboration.

L'Entrepôt – Paris, France

Paulo Nozolino

From June 10 to July 9 - Opening Thursday June 9, 2022

The gallery Les filles du calvaire is pleased to present at the Entrepôt, the solo exhibition “Oracle” by Paulo Nozolino. Paulo Nozolino is undoubtedly one of the major figures of Portuguese and European photography. Since his beginnings, the photographer cultivates a singular writing in black and white, a dark density now inseparable from his work. An artist with a committed discourse, Nozolino looks at photography the same way he looks at life: he uses it as a tool to better understand himself, the world around him, and to search for the limits of his questions and experiences.

Paulo Nozolino was recently presented at Paris Photo with his exhibition “I was there”, as well as at the Quadrado Azul gallery in Lisbon. In 2017, his exhibition “Loaded Shine” was presented at PhotoEspaña, Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid, and in 2018 at Les filles du calvaire gallery.


Jeu de Paume – Tours

Thibaut Cuisset

From November 26, 2021 to May 22, 2022

Between 2001 and 2010, as part of his research into the landscape and the French countryside, Thibaut Cuisset photographed the Loire and its immediate surroundings on numerous occasions, particularly in the Centre-Val de Loire region, in response to several commissions: in 2001, at the initiative of the Images au Centre festival, in 2002, focusing on the territory of Amilly (Loiret), and then, in 2004, in the Pays de la Loire region, with the support of the city of Saumur (Maine-et-Loire). This series continued in 2010 with La Loire de la source à l’estuaire, the result of work carried out in the Haute-Loire following the award of the Académie des Beaux-arts in 2009 and a commission linked to the opening of the Maison de Loire at Mont Gerbier de Jonc. On this occasion Thibaut Cuisset realized a series of photographs taken at regular intervals along the river.

For the first time, all of these series will be gathered in the exhibition, allowing a deeper understanding of this work on the landscape realized over a decade. “For me, it is not a question of travel in the romantic sense, of autobiographical journeys, or of a state of mind, but of a method that allows me to work on what can be called motives”, explained Thibaut Cuisset in 2004. A work with the photographic camera and in colors, putting at distance temptation of the picturesque and dramatic effect, trying to put a neutral and calmed glance on the things and, according to the own words of the author, “to find a way of looking at the world by creating the images which I believe the most right possible”.

Studio des Acacias – Paris, France

Kenny Dunkan

From May 5 to 28, 2022

“Des Corps Libres – A young French scene” is the first group exhibition of Reiffers Art Initiatives.

Curated by Thibaut Wychowanok, member of the Reiffers Art Initiatives committee, the body of work in the exhibition questions the representation and fluctuating materiality of the body and celebrates its diversity, its struggles and its contemporary emancipation.

The exhibition is an invitation to explore the possibility of a body, singular or universal, whether evanescent, fantastical, digital, anchored in our current world, science-fictional or utopian. From the body-object to the body-subject, from the figured body to the trace of a body, from the dreamed body to the digital avatar body, it is a question not only of writing the body without censorship but of offering the possibility of bringing it a new look, in complete freedom.


Biennale für aktuelle Fotografie – Mannheim, Germany

Paulien Oltheten

From march 19 to may 22, 2022

From Where I Stand explores how a more sustainable, inclusive and empowered future might be achieved from various perspectives. The 21st century way of living is severely influenced by the complex interdependency of people, the environment and technological processes. Technology allows us to enhance our bodies, to have immediate access to information and only communicate with like-minded people, and to use the earth’s resources for our own needs. Despite these advantages, these developments also lead to a many of disadvantages: Algorithms and filter bubbles influence our beliefs and actions. Not all people have equal access to resources; nature suffers from overexploitation.

The Biennale provides a platform for a stimulating and diverse range of global and local stories and events with which our daily lives and decisions are closely intertwined. The works presented can potentially accelerate the much-needed transition towards a greater balance between people, nature and technology.


Foto Wien Festival – Vienna

Laia Abril

From 9 to 22 March, 2022

With this series, Abril questions what it means to be a woman within a society that ignores the menstrual calendar. The chapter explores myths and its cultural origins, alongside contemporary data and its consequences.
Displaying both the research and the visual metaphors, the installation weaves a greater comprehension around the politics of pain and the repercussions of miseducation and silence.

Visions of India: from the colonial to the contemporary

Monash Gallery of Art (MGA) – Australia

Karen Knorr

17 December 2021 to 20 March 2022

Since its invention in Europe in the 1840s, the genre of photography has played an integral role in the course of Indian art history. Although it is often quoted that India is the most photographed country in the world, the history of its representation is more complicated, and more political than initially meets the eye.

Visions of India: from the colonial to the contemporary is the first major survey of Indian photography in Australia, and all artworks showcased are from the collection of Museum of Art & Photography (MAP), Bengaluru, one of the most celebrated collections of photographs relating to India in the world.

Curated by Nathaniel Gaskell, the exhibition begins its journey in 1860, displaying a range of works by pioneering studio photographers, such as Samuel Bourne and Lala Deen Dayal, before continuing right through to the contemporary photographic practices of artists such as Pushpamala N, Karen Knorr and Michael Bühler-Rose.


Le bel ordinaire - Espace d'art contemporain

Art orienté objet

From 06th of October to the 27 of November 2021

Curator : Jean-Jacques Gay

In disruption everything wears out, except Art which is knowledge! Bernard Stiegler

Observing the rise of NFT (Non Fungible Token – whose best known agent is Bitcoin on the Blockchain) and their tendency to define themselves as the artistic phenomenon of the year 21 of this 21st century, Jean-Jacques Gay demonstrates that this can only come from the wear and tear resulting from the adjustment of the art market in the face of the economic-sanitary situation. Also, on the occasion of the Festival accès) ( #21, he brings together a dozen works of emerging and historical artists to share with us his vision of the place of NFT in digital art today and proposes to us to take back a position of spectator-actor-creator.

In this exhibition, the duo of artists Art Orienté Objet presents “The machine to record human-animal telepathy”, imagined in 2007 with the laboratory of a German university. From this laboratory experiment are born four images where the artist, Marion Laval-Jeantet, exchanges her emotional states with her cat Hadji through different spaces, producing four photographic captures that follow in the footsteps of Louis Darget’s (1896) “photographs of feelings” experiments or Hippolyte Baraduc’s (1894) “psychicones” (projection of states of mind).


Studio des Acacias - Reiffers Art Initiatives Paris

Kenny Dunkan

From 20 October to 20 November 2021

“NO APOLOGIES” deepens the artist’s reflections on his Caribbean heritage. Each installation forms a micro-climate drawing about the cultural richness of Guadeloupe: from the aesthetic and symbolic power of carnival to mythologies and magical and religious beliefs.

Another way for Kenny Dunkan to discuss the post-colonial heritage of his island. The body, a recurring theme of the artist who does not hesitate to stage his own body, is also at the heart of the devices: a fragmented body, multiple and becoming.

The title “NO APOLOGIES” (“pas d’excuses”) refers for Kenny Dunkan to all the current violence done to bodies, whether black or gay… and the refusal to excuse them. “I have too often apologized to myself for being who I am,” explains the artist. Because of my skin color, my sexuality… Today, I don’t want to apologize anymore for being the person I am.” – Kenny Dunkan.



Laia Abril

From 18 September to 12 November 2021

Curator: Nathalie Herschdorfer

With Laia Abril, Zoé Aubry, Mel Bles, Sophie Bouvier Ausländer, Agnès Geoffray, Hanneke Van Leeuwen

Long excluded from the learning and practice of the arts and subjected to art critics who relegated women artists to the background because they dealt with so-called “female” subjects, the commitment to face the invisibility of which they follow. as creators is no less relevant today. The artists gathered in this exhibition question the world in relation to the social and cultural issues of their time: there is no question of confining the approach to an artistic category that would separate women and men but of questioning our gaze through a prism that integrates the issue of gender. If today a new generation of artists is seizing subjects dedicated to women, it is to fight against the violence and discrimination imposed by the patriarchy.


SFMOMA, San Francisco, USA

Diana Markosian

From 3th of July to 07th of November 2021

Diana Markosian’s Santa Barbara explores the nature of family and the American dream. Through a series of staged photographs and a narrative video, the artist reconsiders her family history from her mother’s perspective, relating to her for the first time as a woman rather than a parent, and coming to terms with the profound sacrifices her mother made to become an American.

Markosian (born 1989, Moscow) collaborated on this project with a scriptwriter from the 1980s American soap opera Santa Barbara (which her family had watched in Russia), a casting director, and a group of actors. Weaving together imagery of the artist’s childhood homes in Moscow and Santa Barbara, the work reconstructs the Markosians’ final days in post-Soviet Russia and their arrival in the U. S. The result is a deeply personal reimagining of her past and a powerful examination of the interplay between the idealized vision of California life and the reality of the immigrant experience.


Bristol Photo Festival

Karen Knorr

From 03 May to 31 October 2021

Island Life presents over 60 photographs from Martin Parr’s collection to provide a picture of life in post-war Britain.

Widely known for his documentary photography, Martin Parr is also an avid collector, curator and promoter of photography. Selected by Martin Parr and Bristol Museum, Island Life takes photographs from the major photography collection at the Martin Parr Foundation to show the changing fabric of our cities, society and identities. The exhibition features photographs that document moments of historical significance including the poll tax riot, the Aberfan mine disaster and most recently, the Black Lives Matter movement.

These are displayed alongside images depicting the everyday – weddings, shopping, football and Butlin’s holidays. Collectively the images form a compelling study of national behaviour. Photographers featured in Island Life include Khali Ackford, Pogus Caesar, Elaine Constantine, Sian Davey, Chris Killip, David Hurn, Ken Grant, Markéta Luskačová, Graham Smith, Tom Wood and more.

This exhibition is part of Bristol Photo Festival.


Augusta Edwards Fine Art, London

Karen Knorr

From 20th to 31th of October 2021

A solo presentation of work by Karen Knorr, the exhibitions will focus on works from the artist’s two most recent series, India Song (2008-2020) and Monogatari (2012-2017)

Transmigrations refers to both displacement and reincarnation as well as to the migration of souls to an afterlife. In this age of climate change and of great migrations to come, where will our wildlife reside? Will the situation lead to a redefinition of living space in favour of the natural world and the displaced tribes?

Animals appear in Knorr’s photographs as signifiers of a radical alterity, or “otherness”, representing the vulnerable, displaced, and rejected. Animals in two series (India Song, Metamorphoses), set in Indian and European interiors, are the principal actors in a perpetual conflict between nature and culture. Humans are now both perpetrators and victims of the oncoming horrors of our
warming earth.

On Rape, A History of Misogyny / Laia Abril

Musée des Beaux-Arts, Le Locle

Laia Abril

From 23 october 2021 to January 2022

The second chapter of A History of Misogyny (on rape) was presented at Les Filles du Calvaire Gallery in 2020 before being exhibited at the Biennale de l’Image Possible (Liege), FOAM (Amsterdam), and currently at the Musée des Beaux-Arts Le Locle. In this exhibition, the artist continues to expand her ongoing visual archive of the systemic control of women’s bodies across time and cultures. Regarding her work, Abril writes, « by scrutinizing, conceptualizing and visualizing diverse miscarriages of justice across historical regulations, toxic dynamics and victims’ testimonies, the project aims to call out the institutional rape culture prevalent in societies around de world. I’m looking at rape by exploring how concepts of myths, power, and law, relate to the constructions of the notion of masculinity and sexual violence. »


Les Rencontres de la Photographie, Arles


From 4 July to 26 September 2021

Exploring the porous nature of artistic and scientific practice, philosophy and speculative narratives, Desideration offers another space mythology, imagining an interstellar human race searching for a new alliance with its native cosmos. Playing on its troubled etymology, oscillating between a regret for the lost stars (de-sideris) and a desire for their return, desideration is both a diagnosis of and a remedy for contemporary disaster, for late capitalism and the chilling anthropocene. Our civilization seems to have lost some fundamental part of its daily relationship to the starry sky. This simple fact, which shines a light on the material and spiritual destruction of our societies, requires a new configuration of the imagination, a dream zone where new mythologies peopled by hybrid figures come together to make a new pact with the cosmos. Thus, in the terrestrial figure of Anamanda Sîn, we find a new sensibility, one in which meteorites link past and future, earth and sky, art and science, non-human and human, melancholy and desire.


Centre Photographique, Rouen


From 04 May to 26 September 2021

Curator : Raphaëlle Stopin

Group exhibition with works by Melanie Bonajo, Rudolf Bonvie, Pauline Hisbacq, Anouk Kruithof, Andras Ladocsi, Ann Mandelbaum, Adrian Paci, Baptiste Rabichon, SMITH, Stéphanie Solinas, Patrick Tosani, David de Tscharner.

A little over a year ago, we discovered each other, the term is now worn out, “confined”. We have since lived the paradox of a collective experience of isolation: each one at home, all in turmoil. Cordial handshakes and friendly hugs gone, the extent of our sensory spectrum suddenly shrank in unprecedented ways. Touch, the sense through which the sensitive world emerges, manifests itself in a double movement: the child who is about to touch will live the experience of proximity to the subject or to the desired object and that of the distance that separates from it.

How to make an image of touch? In a surface plate, wouldn’t the image be, against all odds, the most apt to encapsulate this paradoxical nature? The À Fleur de monde exhibition considers thirteen artists who have approached touch, embracing or touching it, through photography, video, and casting. They staged the sense by which we experience being-there-with: touch as a vehicle for learning about ourselves, about others, about our presence in the world.


AntwerpPhoto Festival

Katrien De Blauwer

From 26 of June to 26 of Septembre 2021

With every new edition of the Iconobelge exhibition, AntwerpPhoto presents a new take on the landscape of Belgian photography. Get up close and personal with the work of young budding talent and household names from Flanders, Brussels and Wallonia. Because in this third edition fascinating portrait photos are the central theme.


Les Rencontres de la photographie, Arles

Karen Knorr

From 04th of July to 26th of September 2021

Curator : Alona Pardo

Through the medium of film and photography, this major exhibition considers how masculinity has been coded, performed, and socially constructed from the 1960s to the present day. Examining depictions of masculinity from behind the lens, the exhibition brings together the work of over 50 international artists, photographers and filmmakers including Laurie Anderson, Sunil Gupta, Rotimi Fani-Kayode, Isaac Julien and Catherine Opie. In the wake of #MeToo, the image of masculinity has come into sharper focus, with ideas of toxic and fragile masculinity permeating today’s society. This exhibition charts the often complex and sometimes contradictory representations of masculinities, and how they have developed and evolved over time. Touching on themes including power, patriarchy, queer identity, racial politics, female perceptions of men, hypermasculine stereotypes, tenderness and the family, the exhibition examines the critical role photography and film have played in the way masculinities are imagined and understood in contemporary culture.



Cahoon Museum of American Art, USA

Ethan Murrow

From 02 July to 19 September 2021

Ethan Murrow’s latest installation is a panoramic wall drawing inspired by old growth forests that once existed on Cape Cod. The primary subject of The Greenhouse is a massive felled oak tree, a cautionary reference to the effects of colonization and development on the Cape’s natural environment. In a testament to nature’s resilience and regeneration, the dead tree plays host to sprouts of new growth. A treehouse, with windows looking out onto a vast green landscape, creates a potential vision of a hopeful future. The installation encourages discussion, and optimism, about how human beings can preserve and restore natural habitats and coexist in balance with nature. Murrow works with a team of artists using high flow acrylic paint and refillable pens to draw directly onto the gallery walls, and the piece will extend over 75 feet. Museum visitors will have the opportunity to watch the artists at work during the installation in the beginning of June. Additional new graphite drawings by Murrow will also be on view.



PORTRAIT(S), Le rendez-vous photographique de Vichy

Antoine d’Agata

Juin - Septembre 2021

Portrait(s) presents eleven exhibitions, held simultaneously in the city center and outdoors, in the open air: in the space of the Galleries of the Vichy Cultural Center, built at the beginning of the last century and on the Esplanade du Lac from Allier. This year, a new place joins the Portrait (s) exhibition spaces, the Hall des Sources, an emblematic place of the city.

Fusion and confusion. What are these bodies with blood red colors that embrace the images of Antoine d’Agata? These are our bodies, yours, the mi, inhabited by the virus or managed by its threat, the souls wandering the city or tied up on hospital beds, photographed in 2020 with a thermodynamic camera that records infrared radiation and which makes it possible to record the temperature of the living when death has risen. By transforming the viral episode we are going through into an experience of visual limits, the photographer offers a work of rare incandescence.


516 ART MUSEUM - Albuquerque, New Mexico

Kenny Dunkan

From 19 June to the 18th of September 2021

Curator : Arden Sherman

The traveling exhibition features sculptural works by 27 artists from Guadeloupe, Martinique, French Guiana, and Haiti. It presents various approaches to subject matter, materials, and process that speak to contemporary practices by artists of this region, evincing their participation in a globalized art world and putting pressure on who is at its “center” and who is on its “periphery.”

In this exhibition, Kenny Dunkan presents EXOROTIC, a sculpture made up of metallic fuel cans whose phallic spouts are manipulated to form the undulating shape of a wave in motion, while also alluding erotically to the body. Here, the repetition of these sleek cans reflects the commodification of black bodies and the persistence of stereotypes and clichés within conversations about blackness, the body, eroticism, and Caribbeanism. The cans, arranged as if part of a commercial display, also materialize connections between human trade, body exploitation, and imperialism.

Originally from Guadeloupe, the artist is particularly influenced by his childhood memories in Guadeloupe. His identity becomes a point of departure to deal with the frictions of the country and his own place within this history



À Cent Mètres du Centre du Monde, Perpignan

Thomas Lévy-Lasne,

Juin - Septembre 2021

A proposal by Thomas Lévy-Lasne

An exhibition associated with FILAF (International Festival of Art Book and Film) from June 21 to 27, 2021.

This exhibition is first of all an opportunity to materialize a situation: the extraordinary vitality of painting on the contemporary French scene. Non-exhaustive, I have chosen to present painters who keep the world of appearances as a reference. In a wide variety of themes, styles and ambitions, all of these painters question reality with this particular medium that plays with the visible with visible materials: pigments, surfaces, the sculptural side of the painting.

From a so-called abstract painter like Jean-Baptiste Bernardet or Claire Chesnier, yet interested in the luminous spectrum with a disturbing in-between as in Maude Maris or Eugène Leroy, from an iconographic figuration à la Eric Corne or Françoise Petrovitch to the mute realism of Mireille Blanc or Grégory Derenne, in a very assertive way like Eva Nielsen or Mathieu Cherkit to the erasure of the painter’s presence as with Damien Cadio or Katia Bourdarel, of the elegance of the efficient style of Gilles Aillaud or Jean-Philippe Delhomme to the fragile touch of Nathanëlle Herbelin or Jérémy Liron, the common inspiration remains the silent world which is ours, to paraphrase Francis Ponge.

A generation between 35 and 45 years old is particularly highlighted in the exhibition: it was discouraged in art school but these many artists persevered in their patient practice in the midst of an era of the avalanche of images. 100 million photos and videos are posted on Instagram per day. While there has been talk of the return of painting, she discovered older generations, there have always been painters and now a younger generation: the medium takes an exponential place in schools today.

With an assumed look towards the History of Art, a technical interest for the touch and the surface qualities, a certain coldness in the representation, the variety of the painters of the exhibition is reflected in their confidence in the medium that is the painting: this immemorial need to represent the unspeakable of appearances by the presence of a painting.

Fotografia Europea, Reggio Emilia

Noémie Goudal

From 21 May to 04 Juily 2021

Three photographic series – Telluris, Soulèvement and Démantèlement – form the basis of Noémie Goudal’s site-specific installation. Uniting them is a dual focus on real and imaginary geographies to create a space that oscillates between material existence and virtual projection, albeit with an analogue approach.

A skeletal wooden structure houses the works to enhance their manmade qualities; a dense and sprawling construction of vertical and horizontal lines that is configured into dizzying cube formations. This objecthood mimics the visual worlds that are conjured within Telluris – fabricated mountainscapes in the desert comprised of twenty-five stacked wooden cubes.

Works from Soulèvement also feature, summoning illusionary views that magically restructure the material appearance of jagged rock formations through the use of mirrors that turn them into fragmented image scenarios, in the process orientating new sensory experiences of the landscape and reminding us we need images of the world in order to make it comprehensible.

By a process of subtraction Démantèlement sees Goudal once again sculpts the landscape but by gradually reducing, and eventually totally obliterating, the sight of ridges and actual mountain peaks over a typology of images to challenge viewers’ geological gaze.

Disbelief and reflexivity are at the centre of Goudal’s experimentation with the photographic medium.

Laia Abril

From 06 november to 27 juin 2021

Laia Abril’s On Rape exhibition continues its roaming at the Fotografiemuseum in Amsterdam from November 6 to January 10. In March 2020, Laia Abril won the fourteenth Foam Paul Huf Award for her long-term project A History of Misogyny.

Laia Abril’s exhibition On Rape is the second chapter of her project A History of Misogyny. It expands her ongoing visual archive of the systemic control of women’s bodies across time and cultures.

“By scrutinizing, conceptualizing and visualizing diverse miscarriages of justice across historical regulations, toxic dynamics and victims’ testimonies, the project aims to call out the institutional rape culture prevalent in societies around de world. I’m looking at rape by exploring how concepts of myths, power, and law, relate to the constructions of the notion of masculinity and sexual violence.”

Du 19 janvier au 23 mai 2021

Collective show : Reproductive: Health, Fertility, Agency

Curated by Karen Irvine and Kristin Taylor

Reproductive: Health, Fertility, Agency explores the psychological, physical, and emotional realities people encounter in the years leading up to, during, and after fertility. The exhibition features eight artists who consider a range of topics including birth, miscarriage, pleasure, the lack of access to abortion, trauma, and the loss of fertility. The term “reproductive” is twofold. It implies the characteristics of a photograph, bringing attention to a notable lack of visual representation of the experiences of the female body. Additionally, the term is a reference to a common patriarchal, capitalist view of women’s bodies as vehicles for reproduction. This exhibition aims to add visual presence and a deeper understanding of the precarious nature of female rights and freedoms in a time where the future of these rights is uncertain.

Géométries de l’invisible

Espace de l'Art concret, Château de Mouans

Art orienté objet

From September 27th 2020 to January 3rd 2021

Geometry and abstraction play a fundamental role in contemporary art – and the whole history of art from when the very first geometric lines appeared in caves with prehistoric drawings to the very latest works which draw inspiration from this form of abstract understatement.

What is the basis for this phenomenon and what is the reality behind it?

What is the invisible common thread linking geometry and abstraction across the ages and across cultures and forms of expression?

Le Grand Café - Centre d'art contemporain

Noémie Goudal,

From 10th of October to 02th of January 2022

At the Grand Café, Noémie Goudal invites us on a dizzying journey through layers of time and space. In this exhibition she will present her new series “Post Atlantica” which is based on a scientific research in paleoclimatology. Her new video and photographic installations are based on a common fascination for the extreme mutations of landscapes whose geological time is beyond us. Tropical forests, mountains, deserts, etc. are all generic motifs, subjected to the force of natural elements (water, fire) to apprehend the climatic changes of tomorrow. This last series is envisaged as a choreography of landscapes where the mechanical ballet of the photographic sets stages the Earth as a moving entity with a fragile ecosystem.

MAMCO Genève

Olivier Mosset

Exhibition from February 25th to december 6th 2020

Occupying virtually all the museum , MAMCO’s retrospective reviews his career over almost 60 years, from the early experiments of the 1960s to his monumental recent works, via the painter’s reflections on artistic appropriation, monochrome painting, and shaped canvases.

At the same time, several rooms are devoted to movements and artists with whom Mosset was or remains closely associated, allowing us to consider his work in a variety of different contexts. In addition to a section devoted to the activities led with Buren, Parmentier, and Toroni, the exhibition features works by Nouveaux Réalistes (notably Jean Tinguely and Daniel Spoerri, for whom Mosset worked as an assistant), experimental film-makers’ collective Zanzibar (with whom Mosset directed, acted in and produced a number of films), American “Radical painting” of the 1970s and 1980s (including Marcia Hafif and Joseph Marioni) and artists such as Sherrie Levine, Steven Parrino, Cady Noland, John Armleder, and Sylvie Fleury, with whom he has maintained a regular dialogue.

The exhibition is organized by Paul Bernard and Lionel Bovier.

Per ogni estatico istante

Galleria studio G7, Bologna, Italy

Paola de Pietri

From September 25th to November 21st 2020

“For every ecstatic moment” is the title of the Giulia Dall’Olio and Paola De Pietri exhibition that inaugurates the new exhibition season of Studio G7.

The project, curated by Irene Sofia Comi, proposes a dialogue between two researches that for the first time relate to each other in a common space, in an alternation of time and form.

The relational factor, which unites the research of two artists of different generations and manifests itself in the interaction between man and landscape – Comi points out – actually arises from different premises and gives rise to distinct linguistic outcomes. If Giulia Dall’Olio presents unpublished works in charcoal on paper where nature exceeds the size of the work by completing itself in a site-specific, Paola De Pietri tells, through a series of black and white photographs, the plain of the river Po ‘

KATE MCCGWIRE – FEATHERS | FEDERN – warmth, seduction, flight – Extended!

Gewerbe Museum, Winterthur, Switzerland

Kate MccGwire

From December 1st 2019 to November 1st 2020

The “Feathers” exhibition pays homage to this extremely complex keratinous structure, exploring its seductive beauty and multiplicity of shapes. Light is shed on the ingenious versatility of feathers, their use as cultural objects and their current significance in the realms of design, art and pop culture. In addition, feathers can serve as a starting point for considering particular aspects of the relationship between human beings and animals. The exhibition therefore also takes a critical look at the trade in bird feathers, as well as examining the human passion for building flying objects in imitation of nature.



Leeahn Gallery, Corea

Katinka Lampe

From September 17th to October 31st 2020

“Anonymity” is an important message in Katinka Lampe’s work. The object is always represented with precision but any form of realistic reproduction is excluded. The whole offers a hallucinatory vision through a palette of surreal colors.

Harewood House, Yorkshire, UK

Kate MccGwire

From July 10th to October 25th 2020

“During an unprecedented historical moment when our sense of touch has become compromised, an exhibition that rejoices in tactility and aesthetic embrace feels like forbidden fruit. Yet, over the last few days, writing through the feathers of sculptor Kate MccGwire has bestowed a heightened sensitivity to seasonal continuity. Birds continue to nest.

Harewood House was recently scheduled to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its Bird Garden, a sanctuary for rare and endangered species. Chiefly known for her intricate, labour-intensive feather sculptures, MccGwire is the apt contemporary curatorial choice for such an occasion.”

From September 19th to October 25th 2020

Laia Abril’s exhibition “On Rape” is the second chapter to her project A History of Misogyny. It expands her ongoing visual archive of the systemic control of women’s bodies across time and cultures. Abril focuses on the institutional rape throughout a series of conceptual portraits, that together with their testimonies symbolises the different systemic rape cultures — inside marriage, the church, the army or the school.

Harewood House Trust

Kate MccGwire

Exhibition from March 21st to August 14th 2020

With the focus on the Harewood’s bird collection, and the 50th anniversary of the Bird Garden, this Spring Harewood celebrates with a new exhibition in the House by renowned British sculptor Kate MccGwire. With 9 sculptures including one new commission, this exhibition, entitled Menagerie, connects the themes of nature, sustainability and art in a series of beautiful and intricate pieces.

Kate works with the feathers in a meticulous way to create the shapes and colours of her sinuous sculptures. They are trimmed and sorted by size, colour and pattern variation. This year for her new commission in the House, this job was undertaken by a team of Harewood staff and volunteers, with feathers used from the Bird Garden as part of her new piece.

On earth

FOAM Amsterdam

Noémie Goudal

From March 20th to June 10th 2020

Photography enables us to observe the world and the effects of our existence in it. It can be used to document, eternalise and motivate events. Photography has also testified to the paradoxical relationship between man, nature and technology. As we use contemporary technologies to document and question our relationship with the natural world, we increasingly experience this world through the very same technologies used.

On Earth – Imaging, Technology and the Natural World unites the work of 27 contemporary artists who use innovative visual techniques to reflect on the evolving relationship between humans and nature. Besides photography, the artists make use of installation, sculpture, in-game photography and video. Their various visual approaches diverge and converge throughout the exhibition. These artists show they both seek to explore and reunite our technological, socio-economical, spiritual and political connection with the world.

Feathers – warmth, seduction, flight

Gewerber Museum Winterhur, Suisse

Kate MccGwire

From December 1rst 2019 to June 6th 2020

Anyone who cuddles in a warm down jacket or sinks into a duvet and falls asleep comfortably under the light blanket knows that feathers are a gem of nature. They are as everyday as they are amazing. Thousands of feathers cover the bodies of birds, contour feathers, down, bristle feathers and many others, highly specialized, depending on their function in the bird’s clothing. Feathers warm and cool, keep dry, decorate and camouflage. At the same time, the flywheel is an aerodynamic masterpiece that gives birds something that humans have been dreaming of for thousands of years: flying.

The exhibition “Federn” bows in front of this extremely complex structure made of keratin and offers a course through its seductive beauty and variety of forms. It illuminates the ingenious multifunctionality of the feathers, their cultural-historical use and the current significance in design, art and pop culture. In addition, the show focuses on the relationship between humans and animals and takes a critical look at the development of biodiversity and the business with bird feathers.

Isabelle a 24 ans … isabelle a 42 ans

Musée des Beaux-Arts Le Locle

Katrien De Blauwer

From February 15th to June 1st 2020

At the invitation of the MBAL, the artist has developed two parallel stories, where two moments of life are revealed. The first is about female seduction, and the second is about a barely sketched male figure. The artist seeks to place us in this male gaze. There is something disturbing in these scenes, an impression of voyeurism, an atmosphere that seems to come out of a film noir or of the Nouvelle Vague cinema. In Katrien de Blauwer’s work, photography from magazines found at flea markets is reinvented as a surface for new stories. The female characters are revealed while being elusive.


La Filature


Exhibition from April 21st to May 23rd 2020

SMITH’s work, transdisciplinary, plastic and theoretical, is apprehended as an observation of the constructions, deconstructions, relocations and mutations of human identity. Photography rubs shoulders with cinema, video, choreography, bio-art and the use of new technologies, giving rise to collaborations with scientists and philosophers. The question of transition constitutes a central element of her artistic practice, deployed in its multiple dimensions (identity, political but also scientific and formal).

Masculinities: Liberation through Photography

Barbican Art Gallery, London, UK

Karen Knorr

From February 17th to May 17th 2020

Masculinities: Liberation through Photography is a major group exhibition that explores how masculinity is experienced, performed, coded and socially constructed as expressed and documented through photography and film from the 1960s to the present day.

The exhibition brings together over 300 works by over 50 pioneering international artists, photographers and filmmakers such as Richard Avedon, Peter Hujar, Isaac Julien, Rotimi Fani-Kayode, Robert Mapplethorpe, Annette Messager and Catherine Opie to show how photography and film have been central to the way masculinities are imagined and understood in contemporary culture. The show also highlights lesser-known and younger artists – some of whom have never exhibited in the UK – including Cassils, Sam Contis, George Dureau, Elle Pérez, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Hank Willis Thomas, Karlheinz Weinberger and Marianne Wex amongst many others. Masculinities: Liberation through Photography is part of the Barbican’s 2020 season, Inside Out, which explores the relationship between our inner lives and creativity.


Le Bleu du Ciel

Exhibition from March 13th to May 16th 2020

A vowel separates the “Other” world from the “Other” world, and it is indeed in another world that Laura Henno takes us, beyond our own urban world, because lost in the Californian desert, but this adverb “beyond” also means “in addition” to the world.

Here she practices poetic immersion, the one that separates the creative documentary from the reportage, joining the European imagination about the American myth. Laura Henno’s Outremonde touches our hearts, it goes to the heart of things, of the human being, and we understand once again that poverty (which is not misery) takes away all the defences provided by security, money and power. Everything is raw, a metaphor for the end of a world that is occupying us.

Extract from Gilles Verneret’s text.

Des marches, démarches

FRAC Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur

Paulien Oltheten

From February 8th to May 10th 2020

The exhibition Des marches, démarches approaches walking in a broad sense, considered not as a sporting practice but as an artistic approach. Des marches, démarches brings together artists concerned by the practices of Walkscape and artistic displacement; artists who invent, express, practice, aware of the socio-political stakes of their approaches, interested in approaches from the human sciences, nourished by the founding works of Robert Smithson, Richard Long, Francis Alÿs, Stalker…

The exhibition is an extension of Des marches, démarches, a cultural event on the scale of the region developed since spring 2018 and coordinated by the Frac Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur. Based on the artistic proposal of Guillaume Monsaingeon, this event has brought together, around a common dynamic, many cultural, associative or educational actors installed on the regional territory and especially in rural areas far from the cultural offer.

Fluidités, l’humain qui vient

Fresnoy, Tourcoing, France


From February 6th to April 28th 2020

The aim of this exhibition is to show the systems of representation that refer to the state of the world, or prefigure that of tomorrow; or the way in which artists help us to understand the problems at stake when contemplating the future of humanity.

Fresh wind from the North!

Kunsthalle St. Annen, Lübeck, Germany

Private: Anni Leppälä

From January 26th to April 26th 2020

As a “Helsinki School”, a group of graduates from Aalto University of Arts, Design and Architecture has gained international recognition in photo art since the 1990s. Although the school, which unites several generations, does not pursue a homogeneous stylistic or thematic approach, diverse references to nature form a common denominator in numerous photo series by the represented artists.
For this exhibition, a number of Helsinki School photo artists were selected who deal with nature and landscape in their works. The connection between nature and culture as well as an intuitive sense of space are present in all of these works. Some of the pictures deal with the conventions of landscape painting, while others revive an atmosphere that moves between the uncanny and the sublime. Nature in the pictures often becomes a hiding place, a retreat for people. The separation between the human body and the surrounding landscape seems unreal, artificially created.

On the occasion of this exhibition, the new book by Hatje Cantz (Helsinki School, Volume VI) with focus on nature shots will be published in the Helsinki School.

Paz Corona / Lo que vi, Chile 1973–2019

The Invisible Dog

Paz Corona

From March 7th to April 11th 2020

Lo que vi, a new work by Paz Corona includes three films and a ceramic installation. The exhibition is “a device for thinking.”

It echoes the gift that Claude Monet offered France after the end of the first world war: the 22 oil painting panels which make up the Water Lilies. He requested them to be on permanent viewing at the Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris. The paintings are displayed all over in two contiguous oval rooms symbolizing the sign of the infinite.

Corona bridges this story with the one of Chile, her home country, where she has produced some of the pieces on display in the gallery.


Topographie de l'art

Art orienté objet

From February 8th to April 4th 2020

A large part of our emotional potential, far from being directed towards humans, is destined for pets, zoos or nature reserves. The artist who requisitions the figure of the “animal” for his own benefit in order to mix his own figure as a human being acts, in a consensual manner, as an act of “humanimality” (Michel Surya). Convoking animality, it is also the pars animalis of himself that he brings to the work – in the hope that through the animal, more meaning is given to what he is. The humanistic strategy of “animal-for-art” is cognitive. For “my-body” cannot bear not knowing itself, having to endure too much doubt. Animal, help me to know myself less.

Artists: Art Orienté Objet, Joseph Beuys, Tïa-Calli Borlase, Mat Collishaw, Alix Delmas, Jan Fabre, Robert Gligorov, Horst Haack, Joël Hubaut, Joachim Koester, Léa Le Bricomte, Catherine Mainguy, Joanna Malinowska, Maël Nozahic, Agnès Pezeu, Abraham Poincheval,Camille Sabatier.

Katrien de Blauwer / Attack

Katrien de Blauwer / Attack

Dutch Fotomuseum, Rotterdam

Katrien De Blauwer

From November 16th to February 9th 2020

The Nederlands Fotomuseum presents Attack, the first exhibition by Belgian artist Katrien De Blauwer in the Netherlands. De Blauwer has been working for twenty years on a voluminous and powerful work of photo montage, with which she was released only a few years ago. Attack is a reference to the artist’s method. She intuitively cuts images from old international magazines that she then combines out of emotion. New images appear. Women (parts of) women are almost always shown on the cuts. De Blauwer’s work thus responds to the image of Western women as published in magazines from the 1920-1960 period. Attack presents a selection of his work and can be seen at the Nederlands Fotomuseum from 16 November 2019 to 9 February 2020.

Elephant West, London

Karen Knorr

From January 9th to February 2nd 2020

Karen Knorr  will be exhibiting works from The Lanesborough series at Elephant West in London. “The Lanesborough” (once a hospital closed in the 1990’s) is one of the most expensive hotels in the world, where the wealthy 1% strive to live the celebrity lifestyle. Rooms come with butlers and the hotel is a themed fantasy palace where the special few can find happiness and fulfil all their desires of a perfect weekend in London. The animals here are undressed to kill and are all very willing subjects for Knorr’s camera. They pose, fly, flaunt their jewellery and royal connections who live down Buckingham Palace Road. This work emerged out of commission for Departures (2015) and is a playful satire on how to aspire to be rich rich and happy in a very exclusive part of town: Belgravia.

For Ridiculous!, writer and curator Paul Carey-Kent presents an exhibition and performance programme of some eighteen artists who are not afraid to look stupid. ‘The True Artist’, runs the statement famously caught in neon by Bruce Nauman in 1967, ‘Helps the World by Revealing Mystic Truths’. In the same spirit, the true artist is prepared to present the ridiculous, to work in an apparently ridiculous way, or to appear ridiculous themselves.

Noémie Goudal / Observatorium

Kunstverein Hildesheim, Germany

Noémie Goudal

From October 24th to January 5th 2020

The observatory is an idea that has become a stone, an architecture of curiosity, an intrinsic desire to know. Noémie Goudal works in categories of space and time; on the horizon of science, art history and spirituality. She negotiates how worldviews and imaginary worlds have changed in the search for the correct perspective, truth and meaning over the centuries. His work can be understood as a study of photographic images, their ability to imagery and the potential for disappointment. But he does not exhaust himself in the fragile aesthetics of conceptual reflections in the media, but rather leads his observers into the pictorial cosmos of a postmodern and broken magical realism.

Curator Irina Leifer has been inspired by the book ‘Three exceptional and very catastrophic journeys’ (Amsterdam 1676) by the Dutch sailmaker Jan Janz Struys. It is a report of his travel experiences in the East and includes also colourful and expressive descriptions of the obstacles, ways of living, habits and appearances of the people Struys met. The participating artists on their turn, scrutinize contemporary cultural fault lines and limitations they encountered themselves during their journeys through the same countries.

Polaroids et dessins

Le Salon H, Paris

Corinne Mercadier

From Novembre 5th to December 20th, 2019

Salon H features unique works by Corinne Mercadier, Polaroids SX70 originals made between 1987 and 2002, and drawings on paper in ink and coloured pencil from 2008 to 2014. Corinne Mercadier has always drawn, and moving on to photography she continued on the one hand to build her series from 2005 onwards in the form of workbooks, and on the other hand by dreaming of images with pencil in hand and it is these drawings, from the Black Screen Drawings series, that accompany the Polaroids at the H Salon. Corinne Mercadier mainly exhibited large format prints made from Polaroids SX70. However, her working method led her to make a number of similar Polaroids during the same shooting.

The Polaroids exposed are from two series: Glasstypes and One time and no more.

Paroxysm of Sublime

LACE, Los Angeles


From september 18th to november 03rd, 2019

There is a clear sense of urgency that is both rising and collective. It seems to be a matter of dis-ease, as philosopher Glenn Albrecht puts it. His diagnosis for our times is that of solastalgia—an illness at once psycho and somatic—affecting humanity at large, caused by a changing, once-familiar environment, whose fate seems beyond our control. Home becomes first uncanny, then hostile, like a nightmare in which one’s mother morphs into a stranger, then an enemy.

From August 24th to October 20th 2020

Telluris (from the Latin Tellus for the earth) extends Goudal’s earlier investigations into the sky to focus upon the earth. Journeying through Goudal’s installation, the viewer will encounter works from the artist’s last three photographic series; each depicting what look to be remote mountainous landscapes. Three dimensional in appearance, the images are in fact two dimensional backdrops. Re-staged and photographed in the landscape, there is a sense of familiarity about their geological forms and in the surrounding natural environment. At the same time, the mise-en-scène of each work reveals subtle elements of carefully constructed artifice; which disrupts the viewer’s perception of a unified mountain.

Moonlight – 50 Years of Photographing the Moon
25 May–22 September, 2019

Humankind’s first steps on the Moon became etched in the collective consciousness via the lenses of the Hasselblad cameras which formed part of each Apollo mission from 1969 to 1972. The images are among the most iconic in the history of photography. They showed us the Moon – as well as the Earth – as we had never seen it before. In 2019, to mark the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing, Moonlight: 50 years of photographing the Moon will explore the evolving relationship between humanity and the Moon through the medium of photography and film, encompassing ideas of science, documentary, experiment, and progress but also art, imagination, parody and critique.

Exhibition from 1st july to 22 september 2019

The British’s attachment to their homes has continued to assert itself since the early nineteenth century, becoming an important component of their identity. The English language has invented the words comfort and comfortable, words imported into French because nothing better expressed the link between the well-being of soul and body and the domestic interior. What’s better than the theme of the home, the home so dear to the heart of the British, to highlight the richness, the diversity and the development of photography across the Channel? Home Sweet Home brings together thirty artists of all generations who allow us to share the intimacy and the everyday life of Britain from the 1970s to the present day. A look around the property that sheds light from different angles on the social, cultural and political realities, past and present, of British society. Karen Knorr will be exhibiting the a selection of works from the series Belgravia (1979–1981).

Kate MccGwire / Dream

Kate MccGwire / Dream

Chiostro del Bramante | Rome, Italy

Kate MccGwire

Exhibition from 28 september 2018 to 25 august 2019

Dream is an allegorical journey towards the most secret part of the human soul; the theme of dreams is developed through the idea of a journey, and, according to Sigmund Freud, constitutes the channel or “the royal road” for entering into contact with the unconscious and the spiritual dimension.

The exhibition, curated by Danilo Eccher, considers the dream as an element of reflection, of discovery, as a private expression, as a gateway into the deepest space of the soul.

Site-specific works alternate with works redesigned for the spaces of the Chiostro del Bramante, in a sequence that turns into one big story, thanks partly to the direct involvement of the artists. The exhibition itinerary is imagined as an experience that leads the public from the darkest zones to the meditative dimension and on to the heavenly spaces of the soul.

“Dream is the representation of the idea of the dream, another dimension that transcends the physical nature of perception to enter the territory of emotion, of enchantment, of poetry.“ Danilo Eccher

It is a journey that is physical, surreal, mental and dreamlike, leading the spectators through a series of stages and passages, stops and re-starts: from immersion in nature to a confrontation with shapes, from the evocation of personal and collective memories to contact with matter, from shadows, sounds, and darkness towards total immersion in light.

Dream completes the trilogy conceived and curated by Danilo Eccher for Chiostro del Bramante, which began with Love (2016), followed by Enjoy (2017). Three great exhibitions dedicated to the most intimate human emotions represented through the many poetics of contemporary art; three panoramas that are capable of exploring the feelings of the soul: from the ambiguity of desire to the most exhilarating joys and on into the unconscious.

La galerie particulière - Paris

Ethan Murrow

Exhibition from 2 february to 30 march 2019

This series grows out of a constant conversation within my process around appropriation. I frequently use bits and pieces of other artworks, objects and images combined with imagery I develop and shoot in the studio. Stitching and blending are embedded into every drawing, meaning each image is a kind of mash up of the found and the invented. I mull this part of my practice because I am regularly shifting my own ethical boundaries of what is right, fair and good. It’s a process that is in one sense deeply normal and necessary as a creative maker and thinker. We all do it and this is how new ideas are crafted. But it also reminds me of modes of cultural appropriation and outright theft as powerful individuals, communities and nations have struck out into the world and taken what is not theirs. For the Grand Theft, I decided to question this practice of sampling, make fun of it and consider it’s larger impact historically. More information

Art Orienté Objet / Matter(s) Matter(s)

MSU Broad

Art orienté objet

From October 27 of 2018 to March 3 of 2019

This exhibition brings together new and recent projects by participants in the BRIDGE Artist-in-Residence Program at Michigan State University— a three-year-long initiative connecting international, cutting-edge artists with faculty and students across the university’s many colleges. With their shared interests in materiality and topical issues—the dual “matters” invoked in the exhibition title—the artists and their collaborators address a wide range of phenomena through interdisciplinary approaches to research, experimentation, and knowledge production. The exhibition thus reveals an “epistemological turn” in the arts and sciences, focusing on how knowledge is produced and how the process of production inflects meaning and interpretation. This major presentation highlights the incredible resources the university has to offer, and how artists and scientists work together to imagine the future, today.

Featured artists include Art Orienté Objet (Marion Laval-Jeantet & Benoît Mangin), Evelina Domnitch & Dmitry Gelfand, Tagny Duff, HeHe (Helen Evans & Heiko Hansen), Zbigniew Oksiuta, Kuai Shen, Stelarc, and Sissel Tolaas.

Présentée du 6 décembre 2018 au 12 janvier 2019, en plein cœur de la ville qui a vu naître la Déclaration universelle des droits de l’homme (DUDH), l’exposition « les UNS envers les AUTRES » entend attester de l’actualité du texte et de sa modernité.

Nous avons proposé à des artistes contemporains de créer des œuvres inédites pour interroger et mesurer la portée du texte dans un monde qui a radicalement changé depuis 70 ans. L’exposition fait dialoguer leur travaux et regards, les uns avec les autres, en écho au titre de l’exposition extrait de l’article Premier de la Déclaration. Une exposition tout public qui incitera chacun à poser un regard neuf sur un texte dont la force mérité d’être rappelée et exposée.

Emma Dusong / Des artistes et des abeilles

Topographie de l'art, Paris

Private: Emma Dusong

From November 17 2018 to January 8 2019

Pourquoi un projet d’exposition sur des « Artistes & des Abeilles » ?

Les artistes sont concernés et sensibilisés par l’Abeille. Ils en utilisent les médiums comme la cire et les ailes, et s’intéressent à leur morphologie, leurs danses et leur manière d’utiliser le pollen.

Ils nous permettent de nous interroger sur le mystère de l’organisation et le fonctionnement de leurs vies, leur complexité physiologique (ailes, carapaces, sons et langages).

Sont inclus dans cette interrogation, les conséquences éventuelles de leur disparition annoncée et cet impact environnemental sur la biodiversité, tous sujets urgents à l’heure actuelle.

Formulés à travers les oeuvres des artistes, ils nous ramènent à l’urgence de l’attention que nous devons porter à l’Abeille.

Villa domergue, Cannes

Laia Abril

From July 05th to September 23rd

Laia Abril is taking part this summer of the exhibition Corps à Corps  at Villa Domergue in Cannes. In creating the Parisienne (this willowy woman with fine lips and elongated neck) in the 1920s, the painter Jean Gabriel Domergue popularized a representation of the female body. Thus the paintings of Villa Domergue testify to the artist’s view of the woman of his time.

Paulien Oltheten / Prix découverte 2018

Les Rencontres de la photographie, Arles

Paulien Oltheten

From 2nd july to 23rd september 2018

With the support of the Netherlands Embassy

In The Exception and the Rule (1930), author and dramatist Bertolt Brecht writes: “Observe the conduct of these people closely: find it estranging even if not very strange, hard to explain even if it is the custom, hard to understand even if it is the rule.” Paulien Oltheten’s photos, performances, and videos explore what is common and extraordinary about human behavior in public places. She goes to parks, plazas, and the streets of big cities for direct observation, finding unique activity, repetitive gestures, odd objects, or design elements there. She then connects these events, creating a narrative formalized in words, and still and moving images. Straddling fiction and documentary, found objects and found characters are staged, with a solid dose of humor, to reveal the links between things and human behavior.

Anthropologists tell us that the talismans are objects (sometimes texts, writings), generally with ornamental properties, having the multiple power to attract luck, to protect and help those who wear them. Touchstone of this project, it is here deprived of its mystical aspect, and becomes a pretext to take the concept of an object as origin to an artistic thinking.

Once only, Only once

Obai-in temple, Daitoku-ji, Kyoto, Japan

Karen Knorr

From April 11th to Mai 15th 2018

Undertaken in Daitoku-ji’s Obai-in temple, this work is part of Knorr’s ongoing series titled “Monogatari,” a piece inspired by the artist’s reflection of Japan’s cultural heritage and the wabi-sabi aesthetic (a Japanese sense of beauty that emphasizes simplicity and imperfection) during her travels through the country in 2012. This work combines photography and byobu-style folding screens printed on rice paper. Themes include animal life, Japanese cultural heritage, and myths; especially those of animals appearing in the temple and shrine architecture of Tokyo, Nara, and Kyoto, and those featured in the Tale of Genji. Knorr’s work also introduces animals that personify ghosts and supernatural monsters belonging to local folklore. Women wearing kimonos also appear to symbolize the omnipresence of tradition.

Le Botanique, Brussels

Yusuf Sevinçli

From February 21st to March 20th 2018

With a career that has reached the notice of international critics and several books to his name, including Good Dog and Walking, Yusuf Sevinçli is undeniably one of the young photographers to watch, currently. His peculiarly sensitive world captivates viewers with its contrasts and profound blacks. The artist takes us with him in his daytime and night-time ramblings. There we discover disarming solitary landscapes, stolen, sensual moments of intimacy. As if in a dream, we allow ourselves to be overcome, little by little, by a state of intoxication, of meditation, and even sometimes a spike of anxiety.

With his lens focused outwards, it is nonetheless an interior world that the artist is conveying. As if everything he captures in the world around him only shows itself in order to translate images buried in the meanders of his own daydreams and torments. In his dynamic shots, one can make out feverish gestures, an urgent energy, but above all the untamed gaze of the photographer, capable of filtering reality to pick out a poem in each instant.

Curator: Marina Paulenka
Design: Nina Bačun & Roberta Bratović, OAZA

The exhibition Vigilance, Struggle, Pride: Through Her Eyes brings together thirteen women artists who present stories from their surroundings, inspired by the desire to pave the way for new possibilities of understanding and insights. Their experiences and research pose questions that enable different intellectual and emotional responses to the existing challenges and issues of today’s society. We are faced with a turbulent socio-political situation in which women must fight anew for the rights that had been won long ago, and women’s issues are as current as ever.

Different in approach, these works reflect the representation of a different cultural expression, tackling issues such as the construction of identity, family and home, sexuality and gender-sex roles, representation of women, politics of the female gaze and self-perception, labor and social rights as well as victimization of women and children, accepting the inability to fully understand and engage with a given situation, but also inspiring change and creating alternative spaces that welcome equal opportunities, narratives and outcomes.

The exhibition will be presented in Maribor, Graz, Berlin, Zagreb and Bratislava in 2018.

Museo Municipal de Ourense, Ourense, Spain

Laia Abril

From December 14th 2017 to February 11th 2018

“Was the Werewolf of Allariz a woman?” Known as Manuel Blanco Romasanta, named at born Manuela as it was initially thought that her was a female; according to new forensic theories could have lived with a rare syndrome of intersexuality.

Lobismuller reconstructs from a female perspective the story of the most enigmatic and bloodthirsty serial killer of the Spanish history. Earned the tittle the Tallow Man – due the habit of converting its victims’ fat to into high quality soap; during its 1853’s trial, he was accused of 9 of the 12 murders he admitted (from the trust around 17 attributions), claiming no guilty as he was suffering from a curse that turned it to a wolf.

Paysages Français: Une Aventure Photographique (1984 – 2017)

BNF François Mitterrand

Catherine Poncin, , Gilbert Fastenaekens, Thibaut Cuisset

From October 24th 2017 to February 4th 2018

À partir des années 1980, alors que la France change de physionomie, que le pays devient « territoire », le regard des photographes sur le paysage français est convoqué, à l’initiative de quelques grands commanditaires, pour rendre compte de ces métamorphoses. Le goût pour le pittoresque s’efface au profit d’une esthétique sensible à d’autres thèmes : transfiguration du banal, nature modifiée par l’homme… Les écritures photographiques parlent du patrimoine comme du quotidien et surtout s’invitent dans le débat pour proposer des manières nouvelles d’habiter poétiquement le monde.

Le Château d'Eau, Toulouse

Katrien De Blauwer

From November 8th 2017 to January 7th 2018

Le travail de collage de Katrien de Blauwer, bien que réalisé sans caméra, s’inscrit pourtant dans le photographique par ses jeux de cadrages et de prélèvements. Pour construire ses images, elle découpe des morceaux de photographies trouvées dans de vieux magazines de cinéma qu’elle borde ensuite par des pans monochromes aux teintes fanées, puisés également dans des vieux livres. La couleur du papier, sa matière, les éventuelles macules, interagissant avec les parties de corps sélectionnées, invitent notre imagination à combler ce hors-champ. De nouvelles narrations s’instaurent et révèlent comme par magie un univers d’une grande sensualité.

Menstruation Myths

Festival PhotoReporter, Saint Brieuc, France

Laia Abril

From October 5th to November 7th 2017

Selon une récente étude auprès de 100 000 filles en Inde, près de la moitié ne savaient rien des menstruations avant l’arrivée de leurs premières règles. Une fille sur 3 en Asie du Sud est dans la même situation. 48% en Iran et 10% en Inde ont cru à une maladie, pensant même en mourrir.
En moyenne, une femme passe entre 3 000 et 3 500 jours de sa vie à avoir ses règles ; pourtant dans une majorité de cultures, les menstruations sont vues négativement, voire de manière honteuse et sale. Les nombreuses idées fausses qui circulent sur le sujet ont un impact considérable sur leur santé, hygiène et leur avenir.

Ce sujet est centrée sur la manière dont les perceptions liées aux menstruations affectent non seulement le quotidien mais plus globalement les représentations des femmes dès leur plus jeune âge, avec les conséquences qui en découlent tout au long de leur vie.

Laia Abril est photographe, artiste visuelle, écrivaine et éditrice. Après avoir obtenu un diplôme de journalisme en Espagne, elle s’est installée à New York pour étudier la photographie au Centre International de photographie. Elle
a choisi de centrer ses travaux sur l’intime, d’observer et de mettre en lumière des aspects cachés de la sexualité, des troubles alimentaires, de la lutte pour l’égalité des sexes.

On Abortion

City of Women, Ljubjiana, Slovenia

Laia Abril

From October 6th to November 2nd 2017

Today, safe and efficient means of abortion exist, yet 47,000 women die due to botched abortions every year. Millions of women across countries and religions all over the world are blocked against their will from abortion technologies by law and social coercion and are forced to carry pregnancies to term. Many are minors and rape victims, where their pregnancy is not viable or their health is at risk.

On Abortion documents and conceptualizes the dangers and damages caused by women’s lack of legal, safe and free access to abortion and highlights the long, continuous erosion of women’s reproductive rights to present-day. As she weaves her net of questions around ethics and morality, Abril also creates a series of visual and textual manifestations of the social triggers, stigmas and taboos around abortion that have remained invisible until now.

On Abortion is the first chapter of the artist’s long-term project A History of Misogyny, a visual research undertaken through historical and contemporary comparisons. On Abortion was presented for the first time at Les Rencontres d’Arles in July 2016 and was awarded with Prix Madame Figaro-Arles.

The exhibition in Ljubljana shows a fragment of the entire work, focusing on two thematically intertwined parts, namely: The History of Contraception, and Illegal Stories/ DIY Methods.

Répliques : l’original à l’épreuve de l’art

Musée des Beaux-Arts La-Chaux-de-Fond

Olivier Mosset

From June 30th to October 29th 2017

Les œuvres retenues proviennent en grande partie de la collection d’Olivier Mosset, donnée au musée en 2007. Elles reflètent l’intérêt jamais démenti de l’artiste pour les questions liées à la copie, la répétition, la citation ou l’appropriation, et sont pour la première fois confrontées systématiquement à un choix de ses propres œuvres, qui couvre l’ensemble de sa carrière. D’autres œuvres, tirées de la collection du musée, permettent de les confronter à des antécédents historiques qui mettent en jeu les mêmes questions. Des prêts généreux, institutionnels et privés, ont permis de compléter l’ensemble, et des artistes contemporains ont été sollicités pour permettre de poursuivre la réflexion en prenant en compte les enjeux actuels du numérique, qui instaure un régime de copies et de reprises potentiellement illimitées.

Suspended Spaces is a col­lec­tive of artists and resear­chers brought toge­ther since 2007 around an orga­nic, arbo­res­cent and evol­ving pro­ject. The col­lec­tive’s work method has to do with dis­pla­ce­ment and move­ment, geo­gra­phi­cal but above all artis­tic, cultu­ral and intel­lec­tual. For Albi, the col­lec­tive has made a col­lec­tion of images from some fifty artists, who have been asked to contri­bute five pho­to­graphs echoing the title, Refaire Surface.

Jeu de Paume, Paris

From June 13th to September 24th 2017

The Jeu de Paume opens its doors to Ismaïl Bahri for his first major exhibition. Born in Tunis in 1978, the artist lives and works between Paris and Tunis. He works mainly with video although he continues to make drawings, photographs and installations. Ismaïl Bahri’s work is often produced from a series of operations featuring basic elements of everyday life, with the action stemming from the interaction between them: a drop of water, for example, placed on someone’s skin and reacting to arterial pulsations; a thread being wound in; or the fibres in a sheet of paper becoming permeated with ink. With his attentive eye, his sense of detail and his taste for the enigmatic, the artist creates micro-events while at the same time questioning the conditions for their visibility.

“Instruments”, the exhibition at the Jeu de Paume, presents a selection of his principal works along with two new works, conceived and produced for the occasion. This set of eight video works reflects the main themes running through his œuvre; such themes as fundamentals, duration, scale, and transformation, but also visibility and invisibility, mystery and solving the mystery. The exhibition seeks to develop a movement of progressive enlargement, starting with the intimate and leading outwards to landscape, light and a certain sort of abstraction.


Círculo de Bellas Artes, Madrid

Antoine d’Agata

From may 30th to september 24th 2017

Comment rendre compte de cette archive vivante, de ce geste artistique, humain et politique et de cette dérive assumée, consciente, délibérée, ultime dispositif de résistance face à un monde vécu dans la rage et la douleur ?

Comment le corps, l’engagement, l’acte physique et humain de l’artiste et l’enjeu du sacrifice traversent le flux de cette œuvre depuis plus de 25 ans, pour dire l’expérience d’un réel absorbé toujours plus intensément, plus marginalement aussi ?

La tentative de cette exposition rend compte de quelques vérités, fragiles, et impose l’expérience d’une vie, sans échappatoire. Que l’accumulation des images, que la répétition infinie ancre les visions d’un homme repoussant toujours plus loin les limites de sa propre existence, et nous autorise à saisir le sens, la nécessité et l’urgence d’une quête forcenée dont seules restent des traces, des fragments, des morceaux arrachés à la réalité. Quelques « images rescapées ».

New York Arbor

Musée Photographique de Mougins

Mitch Epstein

From June 03rd to September 17th 2017

Le photographe américain Mitch Epstein, lauréat de l’emblématique Prix Pictet, s’attache depuis plus de quarante ans à dresser le portrait du monde par le spectre des réalisations humaines et des liaisons parfois dangereuses qu’elles entretiennent avec la nature. En 2011, il commence à s’intéresser aux arbres de New York. “Cette série de photographies explore des arbres extraordinaires dans cinq quartiers de New York. Enracinés dans les parcs, les centres commerciaux, les jardins, les cimetières et les trottoirs, certains arbres se sont adaptés à leur entourage comme des contorsionnistes, tandis que d’autres ont été taillés en spécimens précieux. Ils sont aussi divers que la population de la ville…”, explique-t-il à propos de New York Arbor.

Des images verticales qui témoignent une fois de plus de son éternelle préoccupation pour l’état du monde et la recherche de l’image analogique pure, authentique, non retouchée.

The Dream of Forms

Palais de Tokyo, Paris


From June 14th to September 10th 2017

Hicham Berrada & Sylvain Courrech du Pont & Simon de Dreuille Francis Alÿs, SMITH & Antonin-Tri Hoang

The exhibition “The Dream of Forms”, presented for the twentieth anniversary of Le Fresnoy – Studio national des arts contemporains, has been conceived as an imaginary landscape, a monstrous garden with perishable forms growing in it, as well as germinating surfaces, protuberant organisms and flat figures.

The artists and researchers who have been brought together in “The Dream of Forms” testify to their encounter with the new possibilities of representation, derived from recent scientific and technological discoveries, which shake up our way of seeing and showing. By renewing in this way the field of the perceptible – with nanotechnologies, synthetic images, 3D scans, stereolithography etc. – these new visualisations hint at as yet unknown geometries.

Helena Almeida: Work is never finished

Art Institute Chicago

Helena Almeida

From june 29th to september 4th 2017

“My work is my body; my body is my work,” Helena Almeida declared in 1969. Around this time the artist took a photograph of herself wearing a blank pink-toned canvas across her torso—at once a comical and a radical gesture, and one that marked a crucial turn in her practice. Almeida (Portuguese, born 1934) had studied painting in Lisbon in the mid-1950s but since 1969 has produced mainly black-and-white photographs of herself, sometimes painting or tinting them. These are never self-portraits, but the compositions always center on the artist’s body, always differently posed or contorted and almost always captured in the same corner of her studio. She tends to work in long, sometimes open-ended series, and in recent decades she has printed her photographs at full-body scale or larger. While Almeida still calls herself a painter rather than a photographer, she is at the same time also a kind of dancer, engaged in an ongoing, experimental choreography of everyday gestures and physical limits, exploring the seemingly endless malleability of the body.


Les Rencontres d'Arles, France

From July 03rd to August 27th 2017

“I arrive in Libya for the first time in December of 2014. First at Ras-Jedir, on the border with Tunisia, then to Zuwara, a city known for transporting immigrants by boat to Italy, known for shipwrecks. Known for those who live the fifty-fifty: life or death. I meet 26-year-old Yunes in Zuwara. He’s a telecommunications engineer who became a fixer for journalists. He also fought in the 2014 war. At our first meeting, Younes asked me an upsetting but pertinent question: “Are you here for the migrants or the war?” It is upsetting as it displays what motivates the media, and their interests in his country; it is pertinent, frank and direct, as it describes the political context: is it possible to dissociate the war and the plight of migrants? Built as an installation, this exhibition brings its audience into a narrative where the relation between visibility and invisibility plays out among those that live here, and those that find themselves here, for better or for worse.”

En privilégiant les médias de capture et de restitution du réel que sont la photographie et l’enregistrement sonore ou vidéo, Léa Bismuth sollicite des artistes qui sondent, fouillent et révèlent la matière du monde.

How do you see yourself? How would you like others to see you? The self-portraits of artists offer glimpses into the innermost side of their makers. The works show artists who are noble and proud, but also plenty of humour and self-irony.

“It’s difficult to speak of La Movida and explain it to those who didn’t live those years. We weren’t a generation; we weren’t an artistic movement; we weren’t a group with a concrete ideology. We were simply a bunch of people that coincided in one of the most explosive moments in the country.” – Pedro Almodóvar

Laia Abril

From June 16th to July 1st 2017

Archipel (Dans le cadre du Mois de la Photo)

La Terrasse (Nanterre)

Thierry Fontaine

From Mars 25th to June 30th 2017

Commissariat : Sandrine Moreau

Les photographies de Thierry Fontaine insèrent la poésie dans l’expérience esthétique de l’espace public exceptionnel qui environne La Terrasse : espace d’art de Nanterre. « Axe historique depuis le coeur de Paris vers l’ouest, le Grand Axe s’ouvre à la Grande Arche de von Spreckelsen et ne semble jamais se refermer, il se confond avec l’horizon des terrasses de Saint Germain. Seul le tronçon situé entre le stade et les prairies libres de la Ferme du Bonheur reconduit un modèle de « rue » où le regard est conduit selon la pure ligne droite.

«Archipel» propose de fragmenter cette vision et de faire de l’installation photographique une série d’îles disposées dans l’espace sans souci de cadence particulière, de symétrie ou d’alignement au bâti. Il s’agit ici de faire divaguer le regard et d’apporter un contrepoint à la rigueur de l’axe. Une île est à la fois un isolat dans l’espace et une structure propre. Chacune est différente de toutes les autres, tant par le contenu – le sujet traité par l’image montrée – que par le support, l’orientation, l’accès offert au public.»

Lontano (2000-2017)

Abbayes de Jumièges, Jumièges

Corinne Mercadier

From April 08th to June 18th 2017

Carte blanche à Christine Ollier

Le travail de Corinne Mercadier est une éternelle envolée. Il puise ses formes aux frontières de la sculpture, du dessin, de la danse. Ses espaces sont ceux de la peinture et de la perspective de la Renaissance, du plateau chorégraphique et de la scène théâtrale. La photographie en est le réceptacle. Elle est le cœur, l’instant magique où la captation cristallise les éléments formels et poétiques. Sans ce moment d’accomplissement, les corps, les sculptures et objets mis en scène demeuraient inertes, sans vie. Dans cette oeuvre le poétique rencontre le photographique pour livrer une image rêvée prise dans une fugace éternité. Mais cette immortalité n’est pas nostalgique. Elle se déplace toujours selon une inspiration nouvelle où les références picturales et philosophiques s’entrecroisent avec des formes imaginées par l’artiste et le mouvement qu’elle insuffle à ses modèles.

Projection de “Foyer”

Vers le but

FRAC Provence Alpes-Côtes d’Azur, Marseille

Thierry Fontaine

From March 04th to June 04th 2017

L’exposition Vers le but de Thierry Fontaine propose une déambulation à travers un ensemble de 80 photographies grand format. Projetées ou présentées au mur, ses photographies révèlent des mises en scène de corps, d’objets organisés avec précision dans un contexte choisi : paysages maritimes, zones forestières, milieux urbains… Toutefois, les cadrages centrés et serrés sur ses sujets suppriment toute possibilité de localiser ces lieux.


Institut français de Tunisie, Tunis

From March 16th to May 16th 2017

Du 16 mars au 16 mai, la galerie de l’Institut français de Tunisie accueille l’exposition photographique “Empire” de Samuel Gratacap. Le vernissage aura lieu le jeudi 16 mars à 18h.

La série photographique Empire de Samuel Gratacap, résulte de plusieurs séjours qu’il a réalisés entre 2012 et 2014 dans le camp de réfugiés de Choucha, situé en Tunisie à 5km de la frontière libyenne. À partir de 2011, le camp de Choucha est devenu un lieu de transit pour plusieurs centaines de milliers de réfugiés d’origine subsaharienne qui ont dû fuir la guerre en Libye.

En juillet 2013, le Haut-Commissariat des Nations unies pour les réfugiés (HCR) et les organisations humanitaires décident de la fermeture officielle du camp et quittent Choucha. Malgré cette décision, des centaines d’hommes, de femmes et d’enfants ont continué d’y vivre dans des conditions précaires sans eau, ni nourriture et ni assistance médicale.

Le travail photographique et vidéo de Samuel Gratacap rend compte du quotidien de ces réfugiés et de la réalité de ce lieu de vie marqué par l’attente, il esquisse les contours d’une situation en suspens. Aux nombreux tirages photographiques de différents formats s’ajoutent des séries de polaroïds, un ensemble d’images apposées au mur, la transcription de témoignages, des séquences vidéos. Ces différents supports retranscrivent, comme le dit l’artiste, l’idée qu’ “il n’y a pas une histoire de Choucha mais autant d’histoires que le nombre de personnes qui y ont vécu”.

Heavy The Sea

Transformer Station, Cleveland (US)

Private: Esther Teichmann

From January 14th to April 30th 2017

Transformer Station is pleased to present the first solo museum show of UK artist Esther Teichmann. This multi-media exhibition blends photography, painting, found objects, video and music into an immersive environment.

Heavy the Sea takes us into an alternate orphic world, moving from beds to swamps and caves, from mother to lover, in search of a primordial return. Here, the photographic is loosened from its referent, slipping in and out of darkness, cloaked in dripping inks, bathed in subtle hues, evoking a liquid space of night.


Musée de minéralogie Ecole des Mines, Paris

Private: Edouard Wolton

Du 28 mars au 22 avril 2017

Edouard Wolton donne à percevoir par le contenu et le système d’organisation et de fabrication de ses œuvres, les propriétés ontologiques des objets qu’il représente. Du 28 mars au 22 avril 2017, dans le cadre prestigieux du musée de minéralogie, il déploie un assemblage d’estampes, de peintures et une structure d’accrochage qui nous font entrer dans l’épaisseur des minéraux, premiers éléments constitutifs de notre planète dont le musée expose l’une des plus importantes collections au monde.


Edmond Gallery, Berlin

From march 11th to april 15th 2017

Edmond Gallery is currently showcasing a series of delicate biscuit porcelain sculptures by the young Chinese artist, Qi Zhou. Although he does not make direct reference to them, the predominant theme of stuffed animals in this series brings the artists Mike Kelly and Annette Messager to mind and their significant contribution to contemporary art around this same theme.

At first glance there is nothing in common between the immaculate ceramic pieces and Kelly or Messager’s dirty, mutilated and dismembered teddy bears. Despite a similar take on the aesthetics of recycling, Qi Zhuo does not share the Californian’s taste for provocation nor the dark irony of the French lady. Perhaps it is all a matter of generation and culture.

Upon closer inspection, however, the actual operative procedure Qi Zhuo inflicts on our childhood friends is much more abusive and cruel. As a native of the country where kaolin originated, he soaks the stuffed animals in slip before baking them for twelve hours at 1350 degrees. The teddies instantly disintegrate upon contact with the heat and a very thin ceramic layer that once moulded their little shapes is the only thing that remains.

India Song

Collaterals Kochi-Muziris Biennale, Kochi, Inde

Karen Knorr

From December 13th 2016 to March 29th 2017

India Song is a series of carefully crafted photographs by Karen Knorr that blurs the lines between reality and illusion by inserting animals into architectural spaces and heritage sites. This unexpected juxtaposition playfully subverts cultural spaces and punctures meanings traditionally associated with them, while posing questions about power, gender, colonialism and cultural appropriation through allegory.

Le Château d'Eau (Toulouse)

Yusuf Sevinçli

From January 11th to March 05th 2017

Du 11 janvier au 5 mars 2017, Le Château d’Eau présente la série «Dérive» du jeune photographe turc Yusuf Sevinçli dont la pratique photographique quasi compulsive de la vie quotidienne est le moyen pour lui de rester connecté aux êtres et aux choses.
Avec une écriture très personnelle, s’inscrivant dans le champ de l’image contemporaine, il développe une approche intuitive de son environnement, de ses angoisses et de ses questionnements au quotidien. C’est son commentaire sur la vie et sur la manière dont il voit et perçoit le monde qui l’entoure.



Antoine d’Agata

From October 08th 2016 to February 26th 2017

Agnès Thurnauer, Ana Mendieta, Anne-Lise Broyer, Eric Rondepierre, Gilles Stassart, Huot, Julião Sarmento, Kendell Geers, Laurent Pernot, Lionel Sabatté, Manon Bellet, Michel Journiac, Mounir Fatmi, Pierre Klossowski, Rebecca Digne, Victor Man, Yannick Haenel, Antoine d’Agata, Édouard Levé

Pour cette première exposition, onze artistes interrogent le concept de « dépense » avec des productions inédites, en regard d’autres artistes contemporains, et d’œuvres plus anciennes dont certaines seront de magnifiques redécouvertes.

La « notion de dépense » est présente dans l’ouvrage philosophique et économique La Part maudite, paru en 1949, dans lequel Georges Bataille étudie une « perte inconditionnelle ». L’économie dont il est question ne dépend plus d’une logique de profit et de consommation, mais d’une considération beaucoup plus large prenant en compte l’énergie du vivant sous toutes ses formes. Les visiteurs sont invités à se plonger dans la création la plus actuelle et déflorer un pan de l’immense œuvre de l’écrivain parfois mal connue du grand public.

Campagnes Françaises

Fondation Fernet-Branca, Saint-Louis/Alsace

Thibaut Cuisset

From November 20th 2016 to February 12th 2017

La réalisation de cette exposition constitue l’aboutissement d’un corpus conséquent sur le paysage français entrepris depuis une vingtaine d’années par l’artiste Thibaut Cuisset.

Travaillant à réunir un ensemble de photographies, Thibaut Cuisset porte son regard sur une France rurale du début du XXIe siècle, en couvrant une grande partie du territoire, créant un atlas poétique et sensible, et d’une certaine façon participant d’une typologie du paysage français.

Ce qui lui importe avant tout, sans photographier nécessairement toutes les régions françaises de manière exhaustive, est de cerner une grande variété de paysages qui donneront à voir une géographie de la France. Toutefois, le paysage urbain est volontairement exclu de ce projet, les petites villes ou les villes moyennes que l’on peut croiser en sillonnant la France constituant un autre propos.


Centre Chorégraphique National de Montpellier


From January 17th to February 10th 2017

PAR/ICI: est une programmation pluridisciplinaire d’ICI — Centre chorégraphique national de Montpellier.

Projection de “Revers”

International Film Festival Rotterdam, Pays Bas

From January 25th to February 07th 2017

A piece of blank paper pulsating before a camera lens attracts a crowd of passers-by in Tunis. The simplicity of the happening slowly opens up to a profound reflection on the nature of cinema (its creation and its collective viewing), while tracing the forms of a particular social and political landscape.


Jeu de Paume, Paris

Du 18 octobre 2016 au 15 janvier 2017

André Breton, Antonin Artaud, Artur Barrio, Ismaïl Bahri, Carl Einstein, Champfleury, Cornelius Castoriadis, Armand Dayot Dada, Ever Astudillo, Federico García Lorca…, Georges Bataille, Gustave Courbet, Guy Debord, Henri Alleg, Jean-Luc Fromanger, Joseph Beuys, Marcel Broodthaers

Le Jeu de Paume confie la totalité de ses espaces au philosophe et historien de l’art Georges Didi-Huberman pour une grande exposition réunissant à la fois des œuvres anciennes et contemporaines.

« Soulèvements » est une exposition transdisciplinaire sur le thème des émotions collectives, des événements politiques en tant qu’ils supposent des mouvements de foules en lutte : il sera donc question de désordres sociaux, d’agitations politiques, d’insoumissions, d’insurrections, de révoltes, de révolutions, de vacarmes, d’émeutes, de bouleversements en tous genres.


Transpalette, Bourges

Art orienté objet, SMITH, Quimera Rosa

From october 8th 2016 to january 8th 2017

Au cœur d’un dialogue ouvert entre les propositions de Art Orienté Objet, SMITH et Quimera Rosa, qui se contaminent autant au niveau spatial et sonore que conceptuel, la question du vivant est ici posée à partir de fictions expérimentales.

Si SMITH se focalise sur un cas étrange qui avait vu la fusion de deux corps et âmes soviétiques, Art Orienté Objet interroge les frontières de plus en plus ténues entre l’art et le savoir, entre intervention artistique et science. Quant à Quimera Rosa, ils grefferont l’espace de deux semaines leur laboratoire TransPlant, du projet Green is the New Red au coeur de l’exposition, questionnant les frontières poreuses entre l’humain et le végétal.

Entropia provoque le dialogue entre biologie, vidéo, astrophysique, sculpture, installation, littérature, danse, philosophie, son, photographie, studio de tatouage, anthropologie, autant de pratiques ou de domaines de connaissances démontrant la mixité organique qui préside désormais à la construction de nos savoirs.

WIELS, Contemporary Art Centre, Bruxelles

Helena Almeida

From september 10th to december 11th 2016

Comissaires : João Ribas & Marta Almeida.
Comissaire WIELS : Devrim Bayar

Considérée comme l’une des plus grandes artistes contemporaines portugaises, Helena Almeida s’impose dès les années 1970 comme une figure majeure de la performance et de l’art conceptuel. Née en 1934 à Lisbonne, où elle vit et travaille, Helena Almeida explore et remet en question les formes d’expression traditionnelles, la peinture en particulier, poussée par un désir constant de dépasser l’espace délimité par le plan pictural. Au WIELS, l’exposition retrace les différentes étapes du travail de l’artiste, depuis ses premières oeuvres tridimensionnelles du milieu des années 1960, qui témoignent déjà du processus de déconstruction de la toile, jusqu’à l’utilisation de la photographie, puis plus tard de la vidéo.

The Measure of our Traveling Feet

Marres, Maastricht

Paulien Oltheten

From September 25th 2016 to November 27th 2016

Large numbers of migrants are risking their lives in order to enter Europe. We see images of small boats afloat at sea, men in helmets and a deluge of drowned refugees. We hear about illegal settlements, desperate families and ruthless smugglers. The journeys of these refugees stand in stark contrast to the free movement of inhabitants of the European Union. While the world seems within arm’s reach to Europeans because of the euro, the open borders and the cheap airline tickets, the continent is becoming a closed fortress from the outside. Discussions revolve around migration, social inequality and the moving of feet that has always been part and parcel of these issues.

The exhibition The Measure of our Traveling Feet focuses on the social and cultural significance of migration. What does the world beyond the border have to offer? In which ways does travel change the past and alter identities? Paulien Oltheten has documented her journey on current and historical routes from eastern and central Europe to the west. Shilpa Gupta immerses us in the confusion that is typical of arrival in an unfamiliar environment, while Mounira Al Solh intimately captures migrants’ stories.

The exhibition title derives from a poem by the Irish poet W.B. Yeats (1865-1939) about the changing rhythm of life in modern England during the Industrial Revolution. How does the flow of refugees accelerate today’s pace, and how does it relate to the routes we ourselves traverse?

Participating artists: Francis Alÿs, Anca Benera & Arnold Estefan, Tudor Bratu, Mircea Cantor, Juliana Cerqueira Leite, Shilpa Gupta, Roza El-Hassan, Paulien Oltheten, Wouter Osterholt & Ingrid Hapke, Société Réaliste, Mounira Al Solh, Zsófia Szemző and World Service Authority®.

The exhibition is curated by Laura Mudde and Claire van Els.

Looking for the clouds / Dans le cadre du Mois Européen de la Photographie (EMOP)

MUSA (Museum Startgalerie Artothek), Vienne

From October 24th to November 24th 2016

“Looking for the Clouds” is hinting at the great expectations refugees and immigrants might have when reaching for the shores of Europe after the 9/11 aggression developed in a full war in the Middle-East with a lot of consequences worsening the then also existing financial crisis and economic turmoil in some European countries. The refugee crisis brought many countries to the brink of explosion as an after-effect of the wars in the Middle-East. War on terror also meant more surveillance and control on ordinary citizens. Il also meant new war-strategies of which drones are just an aspect. And watching the clouds can therefore also be an expression of fear.

Foyer / NYFF New York

New York Film Festival, New York, US

From October 07th to October 09th 2016

A première vue, Foyer semble être une projection sans film où seul est donné à voir un écran blanc palpitant. Des voix accompagnent ce blanc. Elles proviennent de personnes qui ont abordé le caméraman du film au travail pour le questionner sur ce qu’il fait. Le filmeur est tour à tour approché par un photographe amateur, un passant curieux, un policier ou un groupe de jeunes. Au fur et à mesure de leurs développements, les discussions dévoilent au spectateur les principes d’une expérience filmique en cours et, par là-même, les principes du film qu’ils regardent. Cette expérience intrigue, interroge et transforme la caméra en un foyer (à l’image d’un feu) autour duquel se réunir, parler et écouter. S’intéressant d’abord à la caméra, ces paroles déploient vite des points de vue singuliers traçant les formes d’un certain paysage social et politique. Elles laissent entrevoir le contexte dans lequel se déploie l’expérience d’un travail qui tâtonne, à la recherche d’une voie dans le monde qui s’agite.

IMMERSIONS / Projection de Face-Ouessant

Projection "SilverScreens" dans le cadre de la YIA, à la Cité internationale des arts, Paris

October 8th 2016

En résidence

Le terme évoque l’habiter : en quelque sorte, l’artiste en résidence se trouve une demeure. La résidence est une façon d’habiter l’errance qui sans cesse recompose l’assemblage entre un corps, un lieu et une action. Il y a alors accélération des histoires : qu’elle soit de quelques jours ou de plus d’un an, la résidence libère les énergies, exacerbe les désirs, courbe le temps. L’entropie et le tropisme se font face et se mêlent pour générer les conditions d’une immersion rapide, la tête la première. Dans le même temps, l’étrangèreté permet de prendre de la hauteur, de saisir d’un regard les (dys)fonctionnement locaux…

Lobismuller Images Festival

Vevey, Switzerland

Laia Abril

From September 8th to September 30th 2016

In 1853, Manuel Blanco Romasanta was tried for the murder of 17 people: he confesses to nine of them but declares himself not guilty because he was suffering from a curse that turned him into a wolf. More than 150 years later, this case still haunts the collective memory in Spain and baffles criminologists, psychologists and historians. According to recent theories, the killer, who was named Manuela at the time of his birth and raised  as a girl until the age of 6, might have suffered from female pseudo-hermaphroditism. The Catalan artist reinterprets the legend of Romasanta in the light of the presumed intersexuality of the murderer. Produced with the support of the Book Award, Lobismuller immerses us in a photographic world steeped in ambiguity, in which male and female, science and magic and folklore and historical facts are all jumbled up.

Editorial RM (Mexico/Barcelone) and the Festival Images Vevey copublish a book that is part of this work


Musée des Beaux-Arts, Dole

Art orienté objet

From june 10th to september 25th 2016

En partenariat avec l’EPCC Terre de Louis Pasteur, le musée de Dole organise une exposition consacrée au duo d’artistes Art Orienté Objet, alias Marion Laval-Jeantet et Benoît Mangin, dont le travail porte sur le vivant. Dans la sphère des artistes qui se placent à la frontière de l’art et de la science, ils occupent une place essentielle qui consiste à envisager l’ensemble du monde vivant, la biologie, la physique, la médecine, l’éthologie, l’ethnologie, l’écologie, la psychologie comme un objet artistique unique. Leur démarche vise à repenser la place de l’homme dans l’univers et à interroger la réalité des frontières biologiques entre les mondes animal et humain. A Dole, le duo Art Orienté Objet va présenter une exposition inédite et audacieuse, inspirée en partie par la personnalité de Pasteur. L’exposition se déploiera à la fois dans les espaces d’exposition temporaire du Musée des Beaux-Arts et dans ceux de la Maison natale de Louis Pasteur à Dole.

The Asexuals Project

Galerie im Taxispalais, Vienne, Austria

Laia Abril

From June 6th to August 28th 2016


Jeu de Paume, Paris

Helena Almeida

From february 9th to may 22nd 2016

Couvrant près de cinquante ans de travaux issus des différentes phases d’un parcours précurseur se déployant dans les champs de la peinture, de la photographie, de la vidéo et du dessin, cette exposition réunit les séries photographiques qui ont fait la notoriété de l’artiste, ainsi que des œuvres rarement montrées au public.
Dès le début de sa carrière, Almeida introduit dans ses peintures abstraites les préoccupations centrales qui définiront sa pratique artistique, notamment sa volonté de dépasser les limites de l’espace pictural et narratif. Sa série de toiles sans titre des années 1968-1969 témoigne d’un processus de déconstruction des supports artistiques traditionnels et du langage de la peinture.

Suivre sa voix / Emma Dusong

Centre régional d'art contemporain, Sète

Private: Emma Dusong

Du 11 mars au 24 avril 2016

“Suivre sa voix, celle de la personne aimée et disparue, l’entendre encore en soi, la décrire pour mieux s’en souvenir, quitter la mélodie, et suivre sa voie, la nôtre, celle que l’on sent pointer en soi pour vivre le plus amplement possible, apprendre et partager. Suivre sa voix est une exposition en deux mouvements, celui du deuil et de la mélancolie, et celui du jeu, du lien au vivant et au savoir. D’un côté, des œuvres sur l’empêchement ponctuent une salle tout en longueur. Il semble impossible de chanter, de se mouvoir ou de dire au revoir. Seules les larmes coulent et la voix tente de résister à la disparition. De l’autre, on reste dans la vulnérabilité mais cette fois, on négocie avec le système avec l’œuvre Classe.”
Emma Dusong, mars 2016.

A History of Misogyny, chapter one : On Abortion

Rencontres Arles, France

Laia Abril

From July 4th to September 25th 2016

Under ‘natural’ circumstances, the average woman would become pregnant about 15 times in her life, resulting in ten births. Seven of those babies would survive childhood.

For centuries, people have searched for ways to delay or terminate pregnancy. Today, safe and efficient means of abortion finally exist, yet women around the world continue to use ancient, illegal, and risky home methods. Every year, 47,000 women die due to botched abortions. Why?

Across countries and religions, millions of women are denied access to abortion technologies, by law and social coercion, and are forced to carry pregnancies to term against their will. Some are minors and rape victims. For many, the pregnancy is not viable or poses a health risk. But all can be criminalised for trying to abort; in El Salvador, even women suffering a miscarriage are charged with homicide, facing prison sentences of up to 40 years.

In violation of patient confidentiality codes, doctors and healthcare providers have been known to report women seeking illegal abortions, even when abortion is medically necessary to save the patient’s life. On the other hand, anyone who helps a woman abort in a country where abortion is illegal can find themselves incarcerated. And even in countries where abortion is legal, medical staff may risk their lives to perform the operation.

This year, for the first time in history, the Pope has allowed Catholic women who’ve aborted to be forgiven by any priest, anywhere. But while this may seem like a step forward, it perpetuates the stigma of guilt that surrounds women’s choices. In the meantime, politicians exploit abortion as campaign currency, making reproductive issues a political matter, rather than a question of rights.

Laia Abril’s project On Abortion documents and conceptualises the dangers and damages caused by women’s lack of legal, safe, and free access to abortion. Continuing with her painstaking research methodology, Abril draws on the past to highlight the long, continuous erosion of women’s reproductive rights to the present day. Her collection of visual, audio, and textual evidence weaves a net of questions about ethics and morality, and reveals a staggering series of social triggers, stigmas, and taboos around abortion that have been invisible until now.


Musée Serralves, Porto

Helena Almeida

From october 17th 2015 to january 10th 2016

Cette exposition dédiée à Helena Almeida, examine son travail de peinture, photographie, vidéo et dessin, rassemblant les différentes phases du travail de l’artiste, depuis ses premières œuvres datant du milieu des années 1960 jusqu’à ses productions les plus récentes. Dès ses débuts, elle explore et remet en question les formes d’expression traditionnelles, la peinture en particulier, suivant un désir constant d’enfreindre l’espace délimité par le plan pictural.

“Des espoirs” / Emma Dusong

La cuisine, centre d'art et de design

Private: Emma Dusong

Du 30 mai au 20 septembre 2015

L’invitation faite à Emma Dusong s’inscrit dans notre thématique triennale portant sur le « vivant ». L’artiste développe une démarche sensible dans laquelle la voix et le son occupent une place importante, parfois pour donner vie à des objets.

Elle se saisit de ce sujet pour nous parler de la relation conflictuelle voire pernicieuse que nous entretenons avec notre environnement à l’heure d’une hyperconsommation qui semble sans limite et immaitrisable. Son propos se construit à partir de la fragile relation que l’Homme entretient aujourd’hui avec l’oecumène, cette Terre qu’il habite et anthropise. Entre espoir et désespoir, elle évoque par ce titre polysémique la figure instable de l’équilibriste dans laquelle nous nous retrouvons aujourd’hui.

Dans une approche contextuelle, Emma Dusong a créé des œuvres délicates dont certaines nous mettent face à face avec nous-mêmes, nos contradictions, nos conflits internes ou nos addictions mais aussi nos décisions qui peuvent être porteuses de changements et de transformations.

L’exposition se construit en quatre « mouvements » composés de 9 œuvres dont 6 ont été créées en résidence à La cuisine. Qu’il s’agisse de goûter un cœur humain en chocolat face à notre propre reflet ou de se coiffer d’un casque de spéléologie pour projeter, à l’aide de notre propre corps, une vidéo présentant l’effort de personnes qui s’engagent sur une nouvelle voie, ces œuvres nous interpellent et nous poussent à sortir de notre condition de spectateur pour nous impliquer et nous faire éprouver notre vulnérabilité mais également notre capacité à agir.


Festival Voies Off, Palais de Luppé, Arles

Antoine d’Agata

From july 6th to 31st 2015

Pour sa première édition en 1996, le Festival Voies Off présente en Arles le travail d’Antoine d’Agata, photographe alors inconnu. Dès la première rencontre, nous découvrons le talent et l’acuité de l’artiste, qui semble entretenir une relation tendue avec le monde et la photographie. Cette série d’images, « Mala noche », sera très vite reconnue comme un travail majeur, récompensée par le premier Prix Voies Off et soutenue ensuite par Christian Caujolle.


La Maréchalerie, Versailles

Art orienté objet

From january 23rd to march 15th 2015

En 1923, le célèbre historien d’art allemand Aby Warburg (1866-1929) ébranlé par la violence de son époque est interné en clinique psychiatrique. De cet épisode douloureux va naître un texte étonnant, “Le rituel du serpent”, dans lequel il étudie les rituels des Hopis d’Arizona, pour les confronter avec l’histoire de l’art occidental et la modernité américaine.
Aujourd’hui il s’agit d’un des premiers textes de l’histoire de la pensée transculturelle, mais au-delà de l’étude mythologique qu’il y développe, il s’en dégage des dimensions thérapeutiques et visionnaires pour notre temps. En effet, Warburg compare la culture hopi à une expression encore possible d’un espace de contemplation (Andachtsraum) où le lien entre le mythe et la nature n’est pas rompu. Un espace indispensable à ses yeux pour construire l’espace de la pensée (Denksraum) et guérir son époque, et sa propre angoisse, face à un terrible pressentiment : celui que l’âge de l’électricité et des télécommunications peut modifier l’espace physique jusqu’à le détruire.

Le travail artistique de Marion Laval-Jeantet et Benoît Mangin (Art Orienté Objet) se construit sur l’observation du Vivant à travers l’écologie, la biologie, mais aussi l’ethnographie(1) et la psychologie. Le cas du “Rituel du serpent” ne pouvait que les intriguer tant Aby Warburg y dessine une vision globale où les processus naturels sont traités comme les générateurs d’une culture réparatrice.

Seuils silencieux / Emma Dusong

Laleh June Galerie

Private: Emma Dusong

From September 5 to October 24 2014

“Is it possible to make a voice last, although after being emitted it has disappeared? Is it possible to find a gesture again when everything seems still? Is it possible to make a life last even though it is not anymore? Is it possible to give length to an event beyond memory? These are the questions that I ask myself in my work. Through my pieces, the evanescence of a voice, a gesture, a life, becomes palpable in the present. These actions are and simultaneously are not anymore. Photographies give clues, performances propose an alive experience, sound pieces and videos try to reactive this moment. In this way, time becomes circular and seems to escape from disappearance which is although omnipresent.
Seuils silencieux (Silent Threshold) works with voice, the voice of a loved one, precisely described to combat oblivion, the voice which tries to keep someone from an imminent departure and the voice which leaves in order to continue living. Singing associates itself with these thresholds, silently facing our questions. The voice becomes the companion of absence, abandonment and escape. To carry away in one’s suitcase the tale of a departure, to make a letter resonate, to press pillows to one’s ears to listen better, these are the gestures that punctuate the exhibition. In the extension of breathing and words, singing invites the visitor to enter a universe of doubts and metamorphosis. Photographies, videos and sound pieces dialogue, alternately silent and expressive.”
Emma Dusong

Paulien Oltheten & Anouk Kruithof

Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam

Paulien Oltheten

From March 14th to June 8th 2014

In their work, young artists Paulien Oltheten and Anouk Kruithof present a fresh, unexpected interpretation of (street) photography. A fascination for people on the street can be seen in the work of Paulien Oltheten in a personal archive that comprises photos, videos and text. Traveling around the world with a camera she makes photographs of people in their daily activities. With distinct acuity, Oltheten uncovers meaning in even the most mundane human routines. On view are Oltheten’s installation Drawing Lines of Thought(2010) and video Man and Dog (2002), both part of the collection of the Stedelijk Museum, and a new work that emerged from her recent stay in New York.

Art Orienté Objet

Art Orienté Objet

Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature, Paris

Art orienté objet

From october 22th 2013 to march 2nd 2014

Elle fait bramer les cerfs en marchant dessus après leur avoir collé le bourdon. Son compagnon, lui, les gonfle. Marion Laval-Jeantet et Benoît Mangin, qui ont formé le groupe Art orienté objet (AOo) en 1991, exposent au Musée de la chasse et de la nature à Paris. En l’espèce, il s’agit du Cornebrame ou Machine à faire chanter les cerfs dans la brume. Sur le territoire de chasse de la Fondation Sommer – 622 hectares dans les Ardennes –, à l’origine du musée, une bête a été abattue, puis dépiautée. Sa peau a été recousue. Un tuyau de bois saille de sa bouche : Benoît Mangin l’utilise pour insuffler de l’air dans le ventre désormais vide de l’animal. Les pattes ont été remplacées par des bourdons de cornemuse. Lorsque Marion se jette sur la fourrure emplie du souffle de Benoît et la pétrit des genoux et de ses mains, un geste à la fois dur et doux, violent et caressant, cela produit des sons à nuls autres pareils.



MuCEM, Marseille

Antoine d’Agata

From august 9th to september 23rd 2013

Depuis 2011, le photographe ANTOINE D’AGATA, membre de Magnum Photos, suit des migrants qui tentent de rentrer dans l’Union Européenne. Par le biais de textes, de photos et de vidéos, le projet d’Antoine d’Agata est de retranscrire le parcours de ces migrants pour rendre compte de leur destin inique, véritable massacre organisé depuis des décennies, et pour redonner à chacun de ces parcours la dimension d’une odyssée personnelle.

Unrooted Tree (Arbre sans racines) ou la Machine à faire parler les arbres

MUDAM, Luxembourg

Art orienté objet

From march 23rd to september 8th 2013

Unrooted Tree (Arbre sans racines) ou la Machine à faire parler les arbres est créée en 2009 lors d’un séjour au Cameroun dans un massif forestier exploité par une société certifiée. À partir des restes d’un arbre tropical géant abattu, les artistes ont recomposé un nouvel arbre sur lequel ils ont gravé les différentes étapes de la phylogénèse, l’histoire évolutive de toutes les espèces. En effet, seuls les troncs des arbres sont généralement exploités tandis que les parties ramifiées sont abondonnées sur place. D’un diamètre parfois impressionnant, les branches s’élancent dans toutes les directions. À leur extrêmité, nombre d’entre elles sont sculptées en fourche de vélo à laquelle est fixée une roue dont les rayons portent des phrases énigmatiques : il s’agit des 360 degrés Sabians, de courtes formules symboliques astrologiques qui, segmentant les signes zodiacaux, servent à nuancer les prédictions.

L’œuvre d’Art Orienté Objet peut ainsi être interprétée comme une métaphore poético-mélancolique de la relation mystérieuse entre le microcosme et le macrocosme, entre la créature déracinée et l’univers.


Fundação Leal Rios, Lisbonne

Helena Almeida

From april 4th to may 18th 2013

Helena Almeida is commonly understood from the critical relationship that her work establishes with painting or by enhancing the self-representational nature of her work or even from an emphasis on the performative character apparent in her images. The complexity of the absolutely personal formulation that the artist has been finding, from her earliest
works, for the relationship established with the image consistently raises the same bewilderment: what is the status of these photographic images in the relationship they depict with a performative practice, what is the relationship with the painting that endures, even physically, to appear in the photographic images, what is the nature of her dual practice of drawing (as a sketch and as a work) and, finally, what corporeality is manifested in this generic body that inhabits her work. From another point of view it can be argued that the work of Helena Almeida is about space, about the frontier that the image plane defines between the world and representation, and all these statements can be supported by what the artist has said and accurately encapsulated both in her journey and in her personal story, which also shines through in many of the articles written about her. All the works in this exhibition contain arguments for any of these interpretive possibilities.


Le Bal, Paris

Antoine d’Agata

From january 24th to april 14th 2013

Commissaires : Fannie Escoulen et Bernard Marcadé

Antoine D’Agata investit Le Bal en ce début 2013, dix ans après sa première exposition marquante à la galerie Vu.

Dix ans de plus pour une œuvre qui ne compte finalement que vingt années derrière elle.

Dix ans de confrontation, d’immersion toujours plus radicale dans l’épaisseur du monde, ses plaies béantes et ses marges incandescentes.

Dix ans d’une lente mutation de son langage vers plus d’abstraction, plus de noirceur, plus d’épure, sans inflexion dans l’exigence qu’il adresse à son œuvre, qu’il s’adresse à lui-même.

Ice, photographies et documents

Musée Nicéphore Niépce, Chalon-sur-Saône

Antoine d’Agata

From february 12th to may 15th 2011

La photographie d’Antoine d’Agata est plus suggestion qu’identification, plus évocation que représentation. Fruits d’errances nocturnes associées à une part d’inconscience, conséquence de psychotropes, ces images versent dans le flou, la fuite jusqu’à un lyrisme noir, profond et rarement atteint.
Depuis dix ans, Antoine d’Agata, de nuit de préférence, parcourt le monde profitant de ses déambulations pour nous dépeindre un univers sombre et torturé très loin du reportage. Dorénavant il nous fait pénétrer dans l’univers décalé de son propre vécu, faisant de nous des spectateurs mal à l’aise.
Depuis quatre ans, le musée soutient la production d’Antoine d’Agata et conserve ainsi un ensemble complet de ses prises de vues les plus récentes. L’exposition est l’aboutissement de cette collaboration.

La part animale

Centre d’art contemporain Rurart, Venours

Art orienté objet

From march 10th to may 6th 2011

Que ce soit dans le domaine de l’immunologie, de l’éthologie, ou de l’écologie, la notion de terrain d’expérimentation est un enjeu essentiel pour Art Orienté objet. L’exposition «La part animale» retrace ces tentatives scientifiques et existentielles de Marion Laval-Jeantet et Benoît Mangin d’entrer en communication avec l’étrangeté animale, au-delà d’une vision anthropocentrique du monde.
