ROBERT HEINECKEN para-photographer
The Moma museum offers first retrospective Object Matter of the groundbreaking work of Robert Heinecken since he died in 2006. He has devoted his life to making art and teaching. He came of age artistically in 1960s Los Angeles, where the burgeoning art scene provided ways to experimentation. Heinecken has always pushed the boundaries between mediums and also between high and popular culture. Heinecken described himself as a para-photographer because his work stood beside or beyond traditional notions of the medium.

Italian born photographer Daniele Tedeschi lives in Paris. Energetic and passionate, he dedicates his works to life and its interpretations.
He comes back today with a special photographic project calls Presenza Assenza started few years ago in Italy and still continued today with a compulsive fury!
My hand enters the picture to capture the character and make it appear or disappear from its context and is only depending on my mood
A kind of imaginary quest of itself, of us, of the life which is perhaps a necessary escape?
Most of the black and white photos were shot by using argentic film process with my personal Olympus MIU! Story telling in triptych form, multiple images sequences or stills.
All these stories are mainly buried in my notebooks, themselves locked into an old cardboard suitcase at home. But i’ve decided today to reveal part of this work while reserving some other safe from prying eyes … Waiting for a first book and an exhibition soon…

PAWEL ALTHAMER the neighbors
The New Museum presents the first US museum exhibition of the work of Paweł Althamer, the Neighbors.
The exhibition includes a new presentation of the artist’s work, Draftsmen’s Congress, originally presented at the 7th Berlin Biennial (2012). Over the course of the exhibition, the blank white space of the New Museum’s Fourth Floor gallery is transformed through the gradual accumulation of drawings and paintings by Museum visitors and a wide array of invited community organizations. Pawel Althamer also activates the exhibition through a sculptural workshop in which the artist and his collaborators will produce new works during the course of the show. The New Museum provides all paint and drawing materials for this installation.

The world’s largest annual outdoor sculpture exhibition Sculpture by the Sea in Sydney, is back again for a 17th year. At the beginning of the summer, the Australian city customizes her famous beaches with around one hundred giant sculptures created by local and international artists. The exhibition is staged along the Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk where art and natural landscape amaze citizens and tourists. A nice enterprise from this country even if the mega show is not everyone’s liking.

Recently, I visited my friend Sebastian Gross and his painting studio in Brooklyn to check out a serie he had been working on. Upon walking in, I was greeted by his cat and a glass of prosecco. I spoke to Ossa, regarding his number one influence, german artist Neo Rauch (whose work echoes industrial evolution in urban landscapes) as well as painting influences (deriving from Cubism, Expressionism, and Surrealism), style ranging whenever devised and felt necessary. Within his studio process, Ossa uses real time photographs taken on location, particularly of those in his life and scales them on his stretched canvas. He then creates a luminous atmosphere of great heights, improvised activities, industrial layouts, branding and advertisement overload (his signature is Anti-Gravity), various architectures, and Fifth-Element like vehicles, including flying FedEx automobiles and spaceships (for the thread of conversation regarding modern civilization).
— Born in Chile, Sebastian Gross Ossa now works and lives in the neighborhood of Williamsburg, located in Brooklyn, NY.
— He was previously represented by Pablo’s Birthday art gallery located in downtown Manhattan.

20 Years of an Artist — If you happened to miss Dean Dempsey’s incredible solo show, Bosi Contemporary, a Lower East Side art gallery based in New York, is now featuring a new large-installation show titled Transparency, featuring the works of post-war Italian artist Salvatore Emblema. Born in Terzigno, a town overlooking Mt. Vesuvius, Salvatore Emblema had spent most of his life in his native Italy. He came to New York on a Rockefeller Grant in the mid 1950s, where he met Rothko and immediately became inspired by color compositions and minimalism, influencing his own work. Working with shadow and light, color and lines, Emblema used stretched sackcloth as canvas for pieces that are now displayed. Transparency is an exhibition spanning the course of 20 years of the artist’s career. Though, New York’s audiences may not know him, his work had multiple solo exhibitions throughout Europe, particularly Italy, during his lifetime.

SERVE THE PEOPLE White Rabbit Gallery

Sunday, October 27th, 2013



Serve the people/White Rabbit Gallery
The White Rabbit Collection is one of the world’s largest and most significant collections of contemporary Chinese art. Founded by Kerr Neilson and Judith Neilson, it focuses on works produced after year 2000.
A slogan of the 1966/76 Cultural Revolution “Serve the People” meant serving the great cause of socialism. Artists were crucial to that effort, but they had to make the right kinds of art: Soviet-style socialist realism or ink painting on revolutionary themes. All other art forms, Western or Chinese were banned and those who dared to practise them were vilified as capitalist-roaders and traitors. The opening up that began in the 80’s led to a more expansive view of artists’ role : now they would serve the people by boosting China’s national image and income. This gallery is now an essential cultural point of Sydney where most of the impressive chinese art is showing but also a quiet place to discover and taste a wide range of the finest Chinese teas.

Wangechi Mutu

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Pour sa première rétrospective majeure en Australie, le MCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) consacre tout son rez de chaussée à l’artiste Kenyane Wangechi Mutu. L’exposition nous embarque dans un univers surprenant, dérangeant mais aussi captivant. Connue pour ses collages de figures féminines africaines, on y découvre également des installations gigantesques dignes de pays imaginaires… Paysage de collines de scotch à perruques, arbres magiques en laine bouillie, créatures mi-humaine mi-animale et décorations murales ressemblant à des cartes du ciel version cabalistique.C’est donc dans des ambiances de bruns, de rouges et de couleurs terre, dans des odeurs de vin et d’huile et à travers une variété de matériaux bruts et transformés que Wangechi Mutu nous livre une oeuvre fantastique et revendicative. En inventant des chimères, en décomposant des images, en reconstituant des pays aux reliefs presque accidentés, elle dénonce des idées souvent très arrêtées sur la représentation de la femme, elle repense (et panse) ses blessures et celle que son pays d’origine a connu et évoque les problèmes identitaires qui la touchent…
Wangechi Mutu vit et travaille aujourd’hui aux Etats Unis et est considérée comme l’une des artistes contemporains africains les plus importants de ces dernières décennies.

Dans les entrailles du Palais Secret…

Monday, December 10th, 2012

Jeudi dernier, le Palais de Tokyo inaugurait une oeuvre collective au sein de ses coulisses encore méconnues du grand public. Lek, Sowat, Dem189 et tout un tas de trublions issus de la scène graffiti se sont emparés de ce lieu sous terrain, froid et jusqu’alors inhabité. Le résultat est sidérant. La visite se fait sur rendez-vous et en petit groupe ce qui renchérit la dimension mystérieuse de cet espace déjà énigmatique. Les artistes se sont exprimés sur le moindre centimètre carré, du sol au plafond, laissant quelques surprises aux spectateurs les plus observateurs.Ce projet confronte des univers très différents où la violence rencontre quelques notes de douceur qui elle-même s’opposent à des représentations comiques ou ludiques. Les fresques s’entremêlent, se répondent et ne laissent pas indifférents. Alors que certains utilisent la craie ou le crayon, d’autres tapissent les murs de peintures à l’extincteur ou à la bombe. Cette oeuvre, dont on ne connait pas encore l’évolution (disparition ou mutation ?), fait échos à un autre projet de 2010 mené par Lek et Sowat, intitulé le Mausolée. Il s’agit d’une résidence artistique clandestine d’un an dans un espace de 40.000 m2 de ruines d’un supermarché du Nord de Paris. Ces deux artistes mènent en commun la pratique de l’Urbex, l’investissement de lieux en friche, chargés d’histoire – non sans rappeler le Palais de Tokyo, qui les accueille licitement.

Peter Coffin at Venus over Manhattan

Friday, October 12th, 2012

Le Venus over Manhattan est LE nouvel espace New Yorkais dédié à l’art. Situé sur Madison avenue, dans le même building que la fameuse Gagosian gallery, ce lieu d’échange artistique proposera des évènements hors normes grâce à des collaborations avec des artistes, des marchands, des collectionneurs, des conservateurs et d’autres institutions liées à ce domaine. Il a ouvert ses portes il y a quelques mois et présente son troisième show sans demi mesure. Peter Coffin, artiste emblématique de l’art contemporain américain (représenté par Perrotin) est à l’honneur et nous dévoile ses récents travaux à travers une exposition intitulée A,E,I,O,U à la hauteur de son talent, on peut le dire : énorme… Entre son (un haut parleur diffuse des cris d’animaux en boucle), vidéo (la projection d’un feu de bois défile sur un mur), sculpture, dessin et (genre de) peinture, le cheminement entre chacune de ses oeuvres se savoure tandis que nos sens s’éveillent les uns après les autres (ou tous en même temps).
Il s’agit d’une vraie bouffée d’air frais où l’humour ne manque pas d’air !
