Drawing Now Alternative
Participation in Drawing Now Alternative, from 8 to 13 June 2021.
Drawing now will be the occasion to highlight an original set of drawings and collages by Vera Molnar and to present the latest creations by Claire Trotignon and Lionel Sabatté.
Vera Molnar: De la main à l’ordinateur / allers-retours. Vera Molnar invites us to an exceptional confrontation between a series of drawings and collages with some recent works created over the last few months. Pioneer in the exploration of the relationship between the artist, manual and digital work, at Drawing Now, Vera Molnar proposes to create an environment that will connect drawings, among which profiles of the Montagne Sainte-Victoire, square grid experiments, hand writings and recent paper collages. Once again, the artist shows that, more than ever, art remains open to all sorts of experiments, mind and manual games. “The pen runs on the paper; a rubber erases everything; and the eye keeps looking for the traces.” Vera Molnar, 2006
Questioning history, the nature of our contemporary space and the power of utopias, Claire Trotignon’s work also tackles representational issues, especially when combining fragments of old works (etchings) and futuristic architectural drawings. Her work recently took a new direction, which is particularly visible in the works exhibited at Drawing Now mid-way between sculpture, collage and drawing.
Dust, scraps, fragments, improbable pigments, threads, are all the flesh of Lionel Sabatté's paintings, drawings, sculptures, reliefs or other creations. The artist refuses to accept the obvious, leading to a unique blend of mineral, animal and organic elements. We find this strength in his latest work created in February and April 2021 during a residency at Urdla in Villeurbanne. Presented for the first time at Drawing Now, this exceptional set of monotypes leaves the viewer free to perceive the appearance of chimeras or glyphs, to see a bestiary of animals from the abyss or from our dreams, or even a simple human profile drowned in a maelstrom of matter...
