Katinka Lampe

From october 06th to january 26th 2020

Le projet porte le nom d’un numéro Prince. Van der Linden: “Cela fait référence à la signature des artistes et à l’esprit du temps, au moment où ils fabriquent le masque.” Les masques sont reliés par la forme, mais chacun a sa propre signature et son apparence. Katinka Lampe a maculé la forme des yeux et du nez jusqu’à ce qu’un fond en pente apparaisse sur laquelle elle a appliqué un visage peint avec un masque. Lisa Couwenbergh a traité le masque de base avec de la mousse PUR afin de créer une forme simplifiée, qu’elle a fournie avec un «tapis d’herbe». Marc Mulders a fait une variante blonde et une variante sombre, des contreparties telles que le jour et la nuit, tandis que Michiel van Nieuwkerk a utilisé de la terre.

Laura Henno / Désolé

Edouard Manet gallery, Gennevilliers

Laura Henno

From October 3th to December 14th 2019

The title of the exhibition resonates like a distant echo to history, to the history of representation, to the history of identities, to the multiplication of gazes.

To give meaning to an exhibition is to try to draw lines, to weave links to form a movement, a style, a genre, a trend. Try to create a delimitation to understand the meaning of creating meaning. A delimitation, a boundary to frame, to synthesize presentiments, intuitions, ideas.

Paroxysm of Sublime

LACE, Los Angeles

SMITH

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 September 14th to January 5th 2020

“To the lark’s song
In the morning with my faithful wheelbarrow”

The wind and the birds encourage me to pay tribute to the Horse Factor who, carried by his dream, has built his ideal Palace for 33 years. His meticulous observation of nature has given him the ability to transport us to other universes, dreamlike spaces, utopian spaces.

Noémie Goudal / Telluris

Noémie Goudal / Telluris

Art Gallery of Ballarat, International Foto Biennale, Australie

Noémie Goudal

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.
