Drawing Now Art Fair
Participation to Drawing Now, from 23 to 26 March, stand C3 at the Carreau du Temple, Paris 3e.
Drawing in all its states at Drawing Now will take the form of an imposing tribute to Anne and Patrick Poirier's recent work on the writings of Dante. The inks and watercolours presented here undeniably mark a turning point in their practice by returning to a spontaneity of line and colour. The work of the Chevalme Sisters will respond to this monumental ensemble presented as a focus, questioning through drawing the old images produced in Africa by the colonists at the beginning of the 20th century. Images tempered by the addition of contemporary stamps carefully chosen and recomposed by the artists, like a falsely euphoric response. The same concern to work with history is found in Gilles Pourtier's work. His graphite drawings copy details from the Bechers' objective photographs, revealing human presences ordinarily located on the threshold of the visible. For her part, Amélie Barnathan continues her investigation of the female psyche through openly baroque compositions in which she pays homage to several works of classical Western art. Claire Trotignon, on the other hand, extends her collage technique with the addition of gouaches, allowing her to work on the possibility of infinity applied to landscape and architecture. As an echo to our exhibition at the Gallery, Christian Lhopital will also be present with some small formats made during the confinement period.
