Lucie Payoux represents organisms who enters fictive compositions, creating climates of tension where the boundaries of past and future, reality and fabrication are questioned in a Biological Science Fiction.
Matthieu Colarescu, a young artist from the eastern suburbs of Paris, draws his main source of inspiration from the practice of graffiti.
Far from the classic routes, the artist shapes his canvases with an assured line, evasive colours, as well as by using different letterings.
Colarescu seems to pay homage to the first modernists, especially the cubists, to the Arts-Deco artists, while at the same time making a nod to Russian constructivism.
Through his varied influences he reveals paintings between abstraction and figuration.
We can particularly appreciate its quartered curves as well as its exploded patterns.
In his work, therefore, there is a fusion of geometry and the organic, to which must be added a pictorial treatment influenced by the iconographies of counter-cultures.
From his political commitments, he has immersed himself in the libertarian and antifascist aesthetics of the 20th century, from the illustrator Jossot to the posters of May 68, his paintings remind us of the immediate and powerful force of these illustrations.
In this exhibition, the Floating Crew wishes to highlight Colarescu's work and his architectural interest in the workshops of the B2A agency.
Opening on Friday, November 9th from 7pm to 9pm at 11 rue Lesage 75020.
The plastic work of Antonin Gerson and Camille Coléon, from a technical point of view, is mainly characterized by installations, sound devices and performances. The artist duo questions how to transmit and archive the creative process, the action, in a methodological way, inspired by the codes of the scientific method. Which can sometimes be used as a subject and/or reference.
The Exhibition "The Myth of Acoustic Proportionality" is an experimental research around the three orders of Vitruvian's treatise "De architectura".
Using a process that blends the archaeological research of acoustics with its architectural proportions, artists attract us through the quest for the myth of the search for lost sound.
The various works will be presented in three parts essential to the order of the treaty,
"Formitas" representing the perennial strength, "Utilitas" representing the useful as well as "Venustas" representing beauty.
Through schematics, installations and performance, the artists take us through sound memory, its transport and the different hypotheses of architectural representation as to their evolution over time.
the Floating Crew offers a free hand to the couple of artists in order to appropriate the B2A Workshop.
A Group Show in Lyon with PANAR, KYLAM, CHARLES THOMASSIN AND XEVI SOLA.
The enchanting theme of The Beauty and The Beast sets up during the 18th century, it’s an occidental fantasy tale that appears first with Miss Villeneuve literary creation and will then be used by Miss Leprince de Beaumont."
It quickly gained popularity in occidental culture, thanks to its pioneering modernity. We’d like to address the larger and more contemporary stakes of the tale, beyond the popular story.
How to transpose the human being’s myth and duality in opposition to what’s considered beautiful and ugly.
What are today’s necessity to go beyond appearances, are we able to rule on artistic aesthetics’ different aspects?
In order to appreciate contemporary art, the observer must indeed provide an hermeneutic effort appealing to its own cultural background. The work offers but the observer, on the
basis of its culture and critic skills, disposes: he proceeds to its own recreation.
Can ugliness also be a factor of beauty? Can beauty underline the despicable tone of a literary work?
Aren’t pieces of work the reflection of the artist’s duality in which the representation of its ideal combines with the audience’s critical eye? The pieces of work shown today invite us to" question the esthetic, it’s about going past the work’s appearances and to construct its own analysis.
