Claude Levêque — A Dream Moment!

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

Claude Lévêque is not a photographer, nor is he an artist who works with photography as Boltanski, Gette, Annette Messager or even Le Gac were in the 1970s. But he is an artist who is constantly making photographs, perhaps even more than photographers themselves. What he records is at once funny and terrible, keen and poetic. Sometimes an observation, sometimes a step aside in reality — as in his others works, which as we know, are made up of tensions between opposite poles, where violence and gentleness, tenderness and terror, mingle and collide. With humor, roars of laughter and a sense of playfulness that delights and, at times, undermines our understanding.This exhibition contains no framed prints. Rather, the images are projected according to different rhythms and in a different formats, accompanied by two neon sculptures in a intimate hanging that maintains associations linked with the images: identification, exploration, observation, research. this is a journey in images from the artist’s universe — that of a major French contemporary artist offering us a glance at his diary, his sketchbook.The title “A dream moment” is, of course, an antiphrasis, a figure of speech in which one expresses an idea by deploying its opposite.

Only parts of us…

Saturday, November 24th, 2012

Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac announce Only parts of us will ever touch parts of others, a group show curated by Timothée Chaillou. 
Covering twenty years of artistic practice, from the nineties until today, the works featured in the exhibition are all related to collage, montage and fragmentation. The display is itself conceived as a collage in space by the juxtaposition of several mediums (works on paper, wallpaintings, sculptures and videos), the superimposition of works (placed on wallpaintings/wallpapers) and the presence of works composed of mirrors, fragmenting the exhibition and the public.
This project follows on from shows such as Infinite Fold (2010), dedicated to artists who transform the paper’s surface by folding it, and Landscope (2008), which revolved around the notion of landscape in contemporary drawing.
