Exhibition from may 7th to june 20th 2009
This double solo show by François Daireaux at the Galerie Les filles du calvaire and Galerie Dix9, is part of the itinerary of shows devoted to the artist in 2008-2009 and takes place after the two major exhibitions at the abbaye de Maubuisson (March 26 – September 1st 2008) and at the Villa Tamaris Art Center (January 24 –March 1st 2009), which coproduction led to the publication of an important monograph in February 2009 by Lienart editions.
This itinerary will end with a show at the Artothèque of Caen (July 3rd – August 29 2009) which takes part to support this large scale project.
For his Parisian exhibition, François Daireaux imagined an original project : d’un côté // l’autre, a creation on the theme of the double. There is, indeed, nothing but a wall separating the two spaces, which allows the artist to imagine a scenography which reflects of one of his major preoccupations : the multiplication and the put back from a work to another. The visitor will be invited to circulate from one space to another in order to apprehend the entire exhibition and imerge himself into different universes. To realize this project, the artist benefited of the usual complicity of his gallery, Les filles du calvaire, and of the enthusiastic support of the Galerie Dix9 which recently opened next-door.
