Encounters

Encounters are propelling movers, moments which life offers in order to open oneself to the world if we possess the capacity to listen and extend the life of what is to be born. Here, “Encounters” draw links between the creations of the artists whose paths we have crossed in order to share their process with you. We are pleased to show you and make you share the works of: Konrad Loder, Denis Brun, Erlend Van Landeghem, Frédéric Bourret, Stéphanie de Rougé, Florent Girard, Dilip Kumar Malik, Andrey Zouari, Noëlle Koning. Vernissage le samedi 24 novembre à partir de 15h
21 November - 12 January 2013
 

At a time when the web sites reduce the word “encounter” to the evocation of a solitary and virtual research, choosing the word “Encounters” as a title for an exhibition may seem commonplace.On the contrary, it is to give it back its strength so true is it that the encounter is the very basis of our activity as galerists. It is an open, inquisitive word which questions and affords choices and intercourse. It is fraught with synonyms : coincidence, concourse, conjunction and conjuncture, interview, chance, junction, appointment, meeting again but also : jostling, clash, fight, contact, interference, gathering. It arouses imagination and the desire to enlarge one’s knowledge and build up (something).

We are pleased to show you and make you share the works of :
 

Konrad Loder (1957), a German plastician and sculptor who lives and works in Paris. Havens of poetry in a functional and foreseeable world.

Denis Brun (1966), a plastician who lives and works in Marseille.“Creating a narration where one can find oneself again and project one’s own imagination”.

Erlend Van Landeghem (1965), a plastician who lives and works in Gand. Sculptures made of unwonted materials in which one can guess a world between dream and reality.

Frédéric Bourret (1973), a photographer who lives and works in Paris.“I like the beholder to question himself and ponder over the meaning of the picture which is shown to him”.

Stéphanie de Rougé (1976), a photographer who lives and works in New-York.“My process is a blind trance in which my little inner voice finds a place at last, awakens and whispers or cries out what it has to say”.

Florent Girard (1989), a painter who lives and works in Fécamp. There is painting which is created out of material and abundance. Florent Girard's Works are essentially like this.

Dilip Kumar Malik (1985), an Indian plastician who lives and works in New-Delhi. 
Paper scores for an intermingling of arrows, energies and tensions. A wall which becomes drawing, time and space. 

Andrey Zouari (1985), a plastician who lives and works in Paris. Andrey invites us to a world borne by sound and electronic music, a story which is in itself a journey.

Noëlle Koning (1960), a painter who lives and works in Brussels. An ardent colourist, an adept of luminous strength, she is an artist whose canvasses radiate an impressive aura.
