Curated by : Lieu-Commun

“Planes, passages, panels, pictures, and characters fill an exhibition which unfurls like a labyrinth which lets your gaze embrace it. The pieces on view play with the repetition of the daily round and set up different escape strategies.”

 

Sébastien Vonier uproots common materials from the ordinary: a ripped out carpet fills the wall and floor and spreads out like a deformed, flagging trophy. This household vocabulary is embellished by fictional implications with fantastic dimensions.

 

With Jean-Marie Blanchet, the pictorial factor looms up through eclectic assemblages. A formalist painting, made up of geometric forms presented in deteriorated conditions. Silent hoardings, broken boxes, shattered plaques, this interplay of massacre creates an aerial interstice, somewhere between destruction and seduction.
