Why White ? – Exposition collective – Galerie Wagner

Le blanc. Couleur ? Non couleur ? Somme de toutes les couleurs ? Pure lumière ?

En choisissant la thématique “Why white ?”, la Galerie Wagner entend confirmer la puissance créatrice du blanc-couleur et du blanc-lumière.

Avec son “Carré blanc sur fond blanc”, Malevitch associe le blanc à l’infini en mélangeant simplement deux blancs différents — l’un de marque française, froid et très légèrement bleuté pour le carré, un de marque russe, chaud et un peu ocre pour le fond. Considérée comme la première peinture monochrome de notre histoire, celle-ci permet à l’artiste de déclarer : « À présent, le chemin de l’homme se trouve à travers l’espace (…) j’ai percé l’abat-jour des limites de la couleur, j’ai pénétré dans le blanc ; à côté de moi, camarades pilotes, naviguez dans cet espace sans fin. La blanche mer libre s’étend devant vous».

Ainsi s’ouvrent des recherches concrètes, un schéma de l’abstraction parmi d’autres, où le blanc se fait clairement signe et participe ainsi à la quête de la forme pure, tout en créant des blancs sur blancs à l’effet optique délicat et quasi prodigieux !

Artistes présentés: Charles BEZIE – Sophie COROLLER – Ueli GANTNER – GILBERT1 – Gerhard HOTTER – Eli JIMENEZ LE PARC – Saul KAMINER – Jean-Pierre LE BARS – Julio LE PARC – Guy de LUSSIGNY – Carlos MEDINA – Marie-Thérèse VACOSSIN – Hilde VAN IMPE – Géraldine WILCKE

Swiss Watches – Kolly gallery x Happy gallery – Paris

The exhibition Swiss Watches takes place at the same time as the Urban Art Fair and marks a contrast, as the show Swiss Watches is an independent urban art exhibition. The goal of the exposition is to present Swiss quality by selecting only the most emerging artist in Graffiti Art. In 2016 Kolly Gallery initiated a series of exhibitions, entitled Swiss Cheese and Swiss Chocolate, in order to bring attention to the exceptional urban art movement. For the third exhibition Swiss Watches is presenting a quite international line up as well as some new names and unexpected urban jewels. The represented artists are: FLYING FÖRTRESS (DE), PAVEL RTUE (RU), 123 KLAN (CA), SWEETUNO (CH) and SUPAKITCH (FR).

For the third edition the title and concept of the exhibition Swiss Watches implements a superb andoutstanding quality in the exhibited pieces, similar to the world-renowned watches fabricated in Switzerland. The main idea is to represent Switzerland’s strength of luxury goods export. Finally this exhibition promisesstreet credibility for all artists represented. For the third time Kolly Gallery will present an astonishing, surprising and unforgettable experience. Last but not least, do not forget: „Everyone loves Swiss Watches!“

Guest: Happy Gallery (FR)
Swiss Watches is welcoming Happy Gallery (FR) as guest exhibitor. Happy Gallery is an online gallery specialized on production of limited high quality objects made by graffiti and street artists. On behalf of Happy Gallery artworks by Speedy Graphito, Gilbert1 and Nicolas Barrome Forgues will be presented.

The pop-up exhibition runs from April 13 to 15, 2018 at the Espace Oppidum in Paris.

Never Ending Fall – Mirus gallery San Francisco – Recap

Mirus Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Gilbert1 opening February 16, 2018 from 7-10PM with the artist present. The show runs through March 10th

Gilbert1’s process takes its roots in experimenting and evolving as much as possible and trying different mediums. He has found his own vocabulary assembling volume shapes with raw material in reference of a decadent world, and transforming his abstract letter graphics into deconstructed structures.
Creating in situ anamorphosis led him to develop an optical vision he enhances now in studio. Having worked recently the last years on black and white drawings and also as studies for tattoos – dotwork, gradients, transparency, translations, negatives – brought him to research in depth, dimension and perspective.
For his first solo with Mirus Gallery, Gilbert1 wanted to work more in this direction, in order to integrate his usual compositions and graphics in a surrounding dimension and play with vanishing points. He was interested to work on depth and height sensations as a door which suddenly opens under feet, a kind of vacuum which could never stops and create another falling possibility axis.

Intersections – Collective exhibition at Galerie Wagner in Le Touquet

Collective exhibition with Helene Vans, Seize and Sebastien Preschoux at Galerie Wagner in le Touquet (fr).
Opening September 23th, 6pm

En géométrie, une intersection est le point où deux lignes se croisent, la ligne où deux surfaces se rencontrent…
Dans les œuvres d’Hélène Vans, Seize Happywallmaker, Gilbert1 et Sébastien Preschoux, les intersections sont nombreuses et font même partie intégrante de leur démarche respective.
A l’occasion de cette exposition, ces quatre artistes investissent librement la galerie, réalisant des œuvres in situ, à travers lesquelles s’exprime leur approche de l’espace, des éléments, de leur imbrication, de leur relativité.
Dans ses « pliages » par exemple, Hélène Vans crée un dialogue entre le lieu et l’œuvre en traitant la question de l’espace, du volume et de la forme induite.
Figure atypique du street art, Seize Happywallmaker interroge la géométrie parfaite des triangles qu’il connecte à d’hypnotiques cercles en réseaux colorés.
Formé à  l’école de la rue, Gilbert1 est fortement attaché au vécu de ses trouvailles, dont il extrait l’essence, en détourne le sens et leur donne nouvelle vie à travers de fragiles assemblages ou de monumentales fresques.
Enfin, Sébastien Preschoux tisse patiemment des centaines de sillons, recouvrant les lignes des poinçons laissées par le compas, livrant à notre regard des intersections aux effets intensément vibratoires…

Lab / Salon soirée performative au CCN Ballet de Lorraine – Partie 1








Le « Salon » bénéficie d’une longue histoire dans l’art occidental. De ses débuts à Paris en 1667 à l’art contemporain et aux collectifs de danse/performance  à New-York, le concept a été adopté et s’est transformé, passant des maisons d’élites à la rue. Bien qu’il ait pris différentes voies ensuite, un élément reste caractéristique, l’artiste, actif et accessible, participant  et échangeant avec ses amis et le public dans une configuration intime. La série de LAB BAL BAL du CCN – Ballet de Lorraine propose justement ce type d’événements !

Avec: Gilbert1 – artiste plasticien, Etienne C – musicien, Unzip – DJ et les danseurs du CCN – Ballet de Lorraine, en partenariat avec l’association le MUR Nancy.

The “Salon” has enjoyed a long history in western art. From its beginnings in Paris in 1667 to contemporary art and dance/performance collectives in New York, the concept has been adopted and transformed passing the elitist’s maison to the street. Though it has taken many different paths, there is one defining element, the active/participating/accessible artist exchanging with friends and public in an intimate setting. The CCN Ballet de Lorraine’s LAB BLA BAL series proposes just such an event. Artist Gilbert1 (Association Le Mur), musician Etienne C, DJ Unzip, and the dancers of the CCN – Ballet de Lorraine invite you in the making of a spontaneous event!

With: Gilbert1 – visual artist, Etienne C – musician, Unzip – DJ and dancers of CCN – Ballet de Lorraine, in collaboration with le MUR Nancy.
