vernissage
samedi 20 janvier de 17h à 20h
en présence des artistes

Attachée à l’expérience, cette exposition réunit des artistes internationaux à une ré exion sensible autour du geste qu’il soit quotidien, rituel, individuel ou collectif… Leurs propositions transdisciplinaires ont en commun de placer l’œuvre dans le geste et de mettre le geste à l’œuvre pour sonder ses liens avec la trace, l’objet, le signe, le langage, le temps ou l’Autre. Ici, la peinture se confronte au rituel, la photographie à la sculpture,
le dessin à la performance, la danse à l’artisanat… Du dialogue des pratiques de chacun naît une invitation à tisser des liens, à partager et à échanger.

En collaboration avec les galeries Eric Dupont, Maïa Muller et Dohyang Lee à Paris, le Collège des Bernardins à Paris, TRAM Réseau art contemporain Paris / Ile de France.
En partenariat avec l’Institut Français qui accueille Megumi Matsubara – lauréate du programme de résidences à la Cité internationale des arts, la Villa du Parc à Annemasse en lien avec l’exposition de Sonia Recasens « Ailleurs est ce rêve proche » (13 janvier-17 mars 2018).
