In Abstentia

Every years the gallery wants to make « the comeback » as a highlight dealing with the problematic of the body, a problem which is one thread of its programming

To carry out this project, we invite a professional working in an ad hoc domain of contemporary art, but whose concerns have to do with the question of the body, to mount our September show.

In 2013, it was Maria Carmela Mini, producer and essential programmer of the contemporary dance scene, which had thought an exhibition highlighting the relationship between cosmetic plastic choreographer research and work of contemporary art. « Corps en œuvre » reminded and re-actualized that « first medium of the artist, the body is probably implemented since the origin of art. »

This year, keeping this process, we invited Lydia Kamitsis, curator and auditor in the fashion sphere, to seize the question of the clothing. Transcending the codes of fashion through history, anthropology and art, his apprehension of this phenomenon clothing bringing it closer to that of the phenomenon of art as such, recognizing there « an undeniable attribute of humanity, the source of inexhaustible inspiration and reflection [...] real material and material to fiction. »

This exhibition will take place from September 11 to November 29, 2014, and will show the works of Stephanie Coudert, Aurore Thibout, Jannis Kounellis and Thanos Kiriakides.
