Work in progress
For the reopening of the gallery in a new space, 15 rue Guénégaud, I wished to present the entirety of the artists around a common theme: Work in Progress.
The idea behind it being to showcase an unseen art work, genesis of a reflection in progress.
I asked each artist to send me a written text explaining their intentions and positioning to Contemporary Art. I wanted to let the artists express the thoughts and questioning normally brought up by curators or gallerists.
Each, with their own universe and expression, present a heralding work issued from a current reflection.
Two major axis emerge.
Those who depict a world in transformation, The World in Progress, through themes such as the quest of one’s identity, the status of image or climate change.
Others interrogate our origin(s) and mode(s) of functioning: time, the memory of the body, the singularity of cultures or the oneiric.
