The galerie Les Filles du Calvaire has the pleasure of presenting «La voix libre», the first solo exhibition of Emma Dusong at the gallery. As is the case in her work, the artist envisages for the occasion artworks, venue and exhibition as a whole.
Combining works in an exhibition requires having La voie libre (the way clear), which is to say having overcome constraints, just as to be able to produce independent discourse requires having la voix libre (a free voice). By choosing this expression in the form of a portmanteau word by way of a title, Emma Dusong clearly demonstrates sensitive poetics – which infuse her entire oeuvre – but also manifests a liberating and almost libertarian statement. This title-slogan could be perceived as the determination to negate rules or, at least, to free oneself from them. It is possible to trace many filters of interpretation on an artistic production, and it would seem pertinent to examine Emma Dusong’s through this particular prism, which at first glance could appear distant.
