For now it’s called the ‘The Normal’, but it...

Exhibition Focus | Charlotte Moth, Marcelle Alix

« S·he who has thought most deeply loves what is most alive. » Friedrich Hölderlin « Our relationship with living beings is complicated, even for those who have never had this impression from a personal point of view. Today, it's a never-ending concern. This crisis of sensitivity is more than ever transmitted by artists whose work it is to become affiliated with the living, never losing sight of sociopolitical and natural relations. The exhibition doesn't escape from life's flux and Charlotte...

Exhibition Focus | Jean-Luc Moulène, Chantal Crousel

Exhibition Focus | Jean-Luc Moulène, Chantal Crousel

For his sixth exhibition at Galerie Chantal Crousel, Jean-Luc Moulène takes us through a sculptural landscape where abstraction manifests itself as a force of thought and imagination, intertwined with still, bold figuration on a ritualized stage. Montagne pourpre (2019), an abstract object, is put up upon its base, in the center of the exhibition. The fruit of 3D modeling turned out on machine-tools, this impressive hard-foam sculpture is a surface with body. Designed by the artist as a...

FIAC TIPS | “What It Means to Write About Art”, David Zwirner Books

"What It Means to Write About Art" published by David Zwirner Books is a series of interviews with art critics by Jarrett Earnest. Read the interview with Darby English. What would you point to as an early important aesthetic experience? When I was a child, we went to The Cleveland Museum of Art. My favorite experiences were of strolling through those galleries with parents who enjoyed this very much. They weren’t necessarily always equipped to provide detailed information about the art we...

FIAC FLASHBACK | Vincent Mauger

FIAC FLASHBACK | Vincent Mauger

Vincent Mauger was born in 1976 in Rennes. He lives and works near Nantes. His work revolves around the search for a materialization and a concretization of what a mental space might be. To achieve this, he combines digital tools proposing new forms of design logic for objects with artisanal construction techniques. Here, ordinary materials are transformed into a monumental work, its’ surface deployed throughout space, composing landscapes with battered topographies. The concept of blossoming...

FIAC FLASHBACK | Vivien Roubaud

FIAC FLASHBACK | Vivien Roubaud

Vivien Roubaud was born in 1986. He lives and works in Brussels. The artist aims to extract unusable qualities or properties hidden in the objects that surround us in our daily life. The active cohabitations that he orchestrates often clash, adopting precarious and unstable equilibriums. Bypassing functionalities and disorganising savoir-faire are goals that require him to adopt a distanced view. Dust or pollen, printer or freezer parts are brought into play to create hybrid installations,...

FIAC FLASHBACK | Paulo Nazareth

FIAC FLASHBACK | Paulo Nazareth

Paulo Nazareth was born in 1977 in Governador Valadares, Brazil. He lives and works in Belo Horizonte.  Moinho de Vento / Windmill is a performance that features 13 immigrants walking through the streets of Paris. Along their route, they grind coffee using manual coffee grinders. The movement of their arms is a metaphor for the rotating cogs of the world, and a direct reference to immigrant labour, which historically contributed to the construction of our contemporary social structure. As it...
