#NEWACQUISITION [2020]

November, 2020. Ignasi ABALLI, a new artist, joins the VR Collection of AFFAUX !

 

Employing a range of practices as wide as painting, video, photography or installation, the work of Ignasi ABALLI invests in issues related to language, representation, systems of construction of meaning and the notion of time. Promoting hybrid processes of appropriation and manipulation of objects or images found, he explores the tension between what is manufactured and what is mechanical or linked to a natural process, between the visible and the invisible, the material and the conceptual.

October, 2020. Pauline BOUDRY and Renate LORENZ, a duo of artists joins the VR Collection of AFFAUX !

 

Pauline BOUDRY and Renate LORENZ have been working together in Berlin since 2007. They produce objects and installations that choreograph the tension between visibility and opacity. Their objects include “stage pieces” and “wig pieces.” Their films capture performances in front of the camera, often starting with a song, a picture, a film or a score from the near past. They upset normative historical narratives and conventions of spectatorship, as figures and actions across time are staged, layered and re-imagined. The wig pieces conceived using long strands of synthetic hair, which the artists either pin to the wall or suspend on metal structures, entertain an aesthetic ambiguity. Their equivocal status—neither painting nor sculpture—seems to echo the notion of “Specific Objects ” coined by Donald Judd, while the sensuality and corporeality of the materials associated with the world of drag and underground haunts cuts against the grain of the geometric purism and austere codes of Minimal art.

September, 2020. Renaud REGNERY, a new artist in the Collection VR D'AFFAUX.

 

Renaud REGNERY chooses a regulated material: wallpaper. But not any: specifically the one with industrial pattern used during the crisis in the 1930’s America, on sale at the same time as stove tiles. As a poorer population could not afford to buy those, the wallpaper cheaper imitation is temporarily commercialized. Taken away from these historical details, the pattern to be seen remains simple, with no specificity, apart from the reddish color of the grid. Only the simple composition and the chosen format allow distinguishing the works within the series entitled “Faux-tiles Paintings”. The wallpaper is not unfurled, pinned or stuck on the wall as in traditional painting, but enriched with compositions with no particular affect, expelling here too the notion of ready-made.

June 2020.  A new piece by Pierre SEINTURIER in the Collection VR D'AFFAUX !

 

Pierre SEINTURIER imagines an entire theatre for his fantasy memory, creating sto

ries, staging them in landscapes mired with a tense atmosphere, animating them with characters, about whom the uncertainty remains, whether they be fictitious or not, and what their identity may be. The way he inhabits space by staging it on different planes allows him to play with trompe-l’oeil effects and with a visual maze which force the viewer into an active, curious, and even nosy stroll.

May, 2020. Ben ELLIOT, a new artist in the Collection VR D'AFFAUX.

 

The artistic approach of Ben Elliot is translated by the assembly of objects whose set he explores to diffuse an idea or a concept, often polysemic, therefore understandable at the same time by the actors of the art world, the influencers and the general public. A French artist and influencer born in 1994, he has over 28,000 followers on his Instagram account.

June 2019.  Pierre SEINTURIER is back !

 

« There has always been tension, anxiety generated by the characters…

I first have an idea of an atmosphere, of colours and of touches of paint in a décor; characters are then added, and things start happening. Topics depend on the décor actually, just like a scene from a play or a film. »

April, 2019.  Nathlie PROVOSTY is back !

 

How does the pupil, delicate organ that it is, perceive form and color ? These paintings investigate this question by making form and color suggest one thing while evoking another. While they may initially appear monochromatic, deeply layered tones and shapes reveal themselves the longer one looks. Black pigment dissolves into earth tones;  shades of lemon yellow and peach emerge from beneath white paint. The austere, curved lines have a mechanical meter, yet are drawn by hand. The shapes within recall letters, numbers, and other signs, yet willfully signify nothing. The image exists neither in the painting nor the pupil, but in the unresolved space in between. Provosty’s work posits a nuanced concept of vision, testing how the material itself - oil paint on linen - communicates, never assuming that the mind sees what the eye perceives.
