Over the years my proximity with the making of Artists’ projects urged me to accompany the production of these works.
I often encounter the early stages of the creation, during artists studios visits, artist residencies and festival premieres, and I witness a lot of things in the making, as well as unfinished projects, abandonned ideas.
As a producer I help bringing these ideas to existence, and as a curator I create a context that benefits both the artwork and the viewer.BRIGHT MATTER
« Bright Matter » a group show featuring new works by LAb[au], Numen / For Use, Joanie Lemercier, Nonotak, and François Wunschel.
Capitalizing on cutting edge technology to manipulate perception, the delusive displays demonstrate how light articulates reality — and how easily we are deceived. Here, tightly knit as ever, light and space engage anew. When one is used as a medium, the other becomes a canvas, and fantastical new domains (real or otherwise) unfold before our eyes.
Artists: LAb[au], Numen / For Use, Joanie Lemercier, Nonotak, and François Wunschel.

At the crossroads of philosophical preoccupations, but also those, esthetic and theoretical, of contemporary art, Joanie Lemercier gives us with Lightscapes, a panorama of simulated realties and disturbing artificial landscapes.Moving from room to room, we discover the declensions of a particular imaginary, a particular obsession, that of mathematical and abstract modelling of the world, dear to Escher or Vasarely. _(excerpt of text by Maxence Grugier)
