a ppr oc he, 3rd edition
Le Molière – 40, rue de Richelieu, 75001 Paris.
a ppr oc he presents a preview of the 14 artists chosen for the third edition of the salon, 12 of whom are represented by a gallery. It is held in Le Moli.re, a private mansion.
a ppr oc he is a boutique art fair designed as an exhibition with a curatorial gaze, bringing down the symbolicbarriers between the worlds of photography and contemporary art. A boutique art fair consisting exclusively of solo shows, combining so-called traditional photographers with artists who use photography in three dimensions, on non-traditional media such as wood, leather, Perspex, glass and metal, going beyond the frame into the territory of installations.
The salon has invited art critic Etienne Hatt to bring his perspective to their third salon to help curate a pluraland ambitious artistic content. Through the featured artists’ diverse nationalities, backgrounds and ages you will discover 14 personalities who reveal their personal stories and questionings through their works.
Most of these artists were born in the 1980s or later, resulting in a generation concerned with nature and environmental issues (Ana.s Boudot, Douglas Mandry, Beno.t Jeannet). The use of collage, mixed media and a certain connection to geometry confirm the necessity for some artists to adopt a form of automatic writing to counterbalance their psychological activities (Jonny Briggs, No. Sendas, Lindsay Calidocott). Some artists invite us to understand migrant children’s concerns through references to the past and a dialogue of memory (My-Lan Hoang-Thuy, Lebhoang Kgnaye). The appropriation of images for their representation and their material serve as a starting point for the creation of composite works revealing the tensions of the current world (Cathryn Boch, Pugnaire & Raffini, Dune Varela). Last, others are still exploring photography for its fundamental properties, delving deeper into color semantics in the darkroom and the magic of photosensitivity (Laure Tiberghien, Thomas Paquet, S.bastien Reuz.).
