GROUP SHOW – RESPIRER L’ART, QUAND L’ART CONTEMPORAIN SUBLIME L’UNIVERS DU PARFUM  


Olfaction has become a medium of choice for a generation of artists who do not hesitate to collaborate with perfumery professionals and scientists. Indeed, olfaction offers innovative possibilities for contemporary creation. The plant elements used as raw materials in perfumery breathe poetry into ephemeral and even aerial art installations. Other artists evoke the sensuality and fluidity of perfume through creations made of glass. The technical and chemical processes of transforming raw plant materials to obtain perfume have an alchemical character for many artists who, intrigued, integrate them into the heart of their artistic approach.Laboratory glassware, stills and raw materials feed their imagination.

Pierre et Gilles

GROUP SHOW – WITH LOVE, FIFI CHACHNIL, LE FIL D’UNE HISTOIRE 


Since the opening of her Parisian fashion house in 1984, Fifi Chachnil has been drawing the infinite variations of a single score: an ode to the female body, which sublimates its attributes with a lightness mixed with subversive insolence. For Fifi, the quest for the eternal feminine means cultivating her style in total freedom, in defiance of the diktat of trends, to the glory of a carnal, exuberant and… very cheeky! In the circle of “Fifidèles”, Madonna and Kylie Minogue, for whom she designed costumes in the 90s, cohabit with Philippe Katerine, with whom she started singing in the 2000s, the German photographer Ellen von Unwerth and Charles Petit and Pierre & Gilles.

Philippe Cognée

GROUP SHOW – FLEURS !  


Here, the flower topic seems to reconnect with the fundamentals of painting, evoking traditional Flemish still life bouquets as well as Vincent Van Gogh and Georgia O’Keeffe. Through this process, however, Philippe Cognée is also confronting the fundamentals of his own practise. His proliferating flowers echo a nature full of magic and mystery, as fragile as it is indomitable. They act as the “memento mori” haunting many of his past series such as those dedicated to recycling factories (2005), vanities (2006) and slaughterhouses (2008).

Oda Jaune

GROUP SHOW – UNCANNY DEPTHS   




“Uncanny depths” proposes a historical walk and a reflection on time, around the notion of antiquity value theorized by Alois Riegl. Taking place in the MAMO, the former gymnasium of Le Corbusier’s Cité Radieuse, conceived as an inverted ship’s hull, the exhibition takes the form of a baroque, undulating and archaeological fantasy, a resurgence of the myth of Atlantis and of the most mysterious and disturbing incarnations of the forces of time.

Kehinde Wiley

VENICE BIENNALE – AN ARCHAEOLOGY OF SILENCE 


Curated by Christophe Leribault, the exhibition Kehinde Wiley: An Archaeology of Silence is hosted at Fondazione Giorgio Cini on the occasion of the 59th Biennale di Venezia. 

For this new body of work, Wiley has expanded these core thematic elements to meditate on the deaths of young Black men slain all over the world. Technology allows viewers to witness these graphic depictions of violence against the Black body that were once silenced. Wiley states, “That is the archaeology I am unearthing: The spectre of police violence and state control over the bodies of young Black and Brown people all over the world.” In light of the current global conflicts, language concerning power struggles and inalienable human rights are more critical than ever.

GROUP SHOW – LA FIN EST DANS LE COMMENCEMENT ET CEPENDANT ON CONTINUE 


This multi-sensory project approaches the human being as a tool of perception and a tracer of possibilities. Based on our natural perceptions represented by the 5 senses – sight, touch, hearing, smell and taste – the invited personalities from various disciplines reveal their perception of these senses by making it a rule not to stop at a specific medium: they are designers, visual artists, light designers, sound artists, textile designers, dancers and botanists.

Norbert Bisky

SOLO SHOW – MIRROR SOCIETY  


In Mirror Society, the artist presents a series of recent works uniquely collaged with canvas from previous paintings that has been slashed and reapplied to a mirrored surface. These composite arrangements deconstruct the figure into fragments of torsos, limbs, and faces violently intersecting with abstracted bursts of saturated color and the mirror’s fractal reflections. The viewer is confronted with half-hidden, half-bared images of beautiful youth as well as their own gaze, trapped in a voyeuristic feedback loop. With these works, Bisky comments on the narcissism of a society deeply engaged in the production and consumption of a dizzying onslaught of images in viral media, ambivalent to the violence and turmoil of global events.

Omar Ba

SOLO SHOW – FOCUS 


Omar Ba’s work is characterized by its enigmatic nature and its great poetic intensity. In contrast with a didactic narrative, he rather seeks to express his subconscious and his symbolic interpretation of reality. The artist deals with themes such as chaos, destruction, and dictatorship, draping his political discourse in a veil of poetry through a pictorial language that is entirely his own, both fierce and delicate.

Chiharu Shiota

SOLO SHOW – LIVING INSIDE  


For its 14th Carte blanche to contemporary art, the Musée national des arts asiatiques – Guimet invites Chiharu Shiota. For her first solo exhibition in a museum in France, the artist addresses the shores of this new anxiety, that of the Covid era. With her threads, Chiharu Shiota weaves an inextricable protective network around a daily life that has become tiny; this scale, which is new in her work, refers to her experience, to the experience of all of us, of isolation in our homes.

Claude Viallat

SOLO SHOW – LIBERTAD DE COLORES 


This exhibition brings together the most representative works of his oeuvre, which, grouped by theme, pay homage to one of the most important contemporary colourists, whose abstract pictorial syntax is constantly being renewed while still identifiable among all the others through its serial imprints, its materiality, the nature of its support, its manufacture, the surface treatment and its presentation. A prolific and demanding artist, Claude Viallat, who was one of the founders of the Supports-Surfaces movement created in 1970, has been creating for more than 60 years a universe that explodes with colours, leaving traces of his universal poetry in space and time.

Claude Viallat

SOLO SHOW – ECLECTIQUE 


Claude Viallat’s work is based on the conviction that “the object of painting is painting itself”, in a movement of repetition and overcoming: “The notion of repetition, of series or repetitions, becomes a de facto necessity”. The absence of subject matter allows him to concentrate on forms and structures, on the relationship between colours, on pictorial matter, generating a unique work on colour.

SOLO EXHIBITION – ORDER OF MAGNITUDE  


Featuring new works that include paintings, multimedia installations, drawings and site-specific interventions, the show reflects the artist’s profound deliberations on the interrelationship between the cosmic and the terrestrial. In ‘Order of Magnitude’, one finds a contemplation of overarching interconnectivity on the individual, universal, planetary and extra-terrestrial dimensions.

For the first time, French artistic duo Pierre et Gilles are exhibiting in Sweden.

GROUP SHOW – CE QUE NOUS AVONS PERDU DANS LE FEU 


An exhibition imagined by Lola Gonzàlez at the invitation of Éric Mangion.

“Winter 2020, there is the discovery of the universe of Mariana Enriquez, a slap. The title of her book haunts me “What we lost in the fire”.

November 2021, I have just finished her latest novel “Our share of the night”, I am stunned and deeply touched by the power of her writing. So I borrowed her words for the title of this collective exhibition, a way for me to invite Mariana among us and a way for me to invite Mariana among us and to pay her a tribute.
