Partition #mai2014

Exhibition 22May>02August2014

After « Polygone » in 2011 and « Lame (Fukushima) » in 2013 on DocksArtFair, Galerie Houg presents the second solo show of Aurélie Pétrel – « Partition # mai2014 ».
Aurélie Petrel transforms the very concept of photographic technique to establish rules for a double play and creates a complicity between the work and the world. The boundaries between image and context, memory and fantasy disappear, the work reveals as much as it conceals.

Maurizio Savini


10 April >11 May 2014

Galerie Houg presents Vrai Nord the second solo show of works by Italian artist Maurizio Savini.
Savini uses chewing gum for over 10 years; this unconventional material appeared in Europe at the end of the Second World War, became the basis of his artistic creation.First used in its finished form, its pink color makes it a fun pictorial element, and the smell actually forget the heaviness of the topicapproached. This time used in its purest form the white, Savini heats the gum, it sometimes incorporates pigment and handles like clay, eventually stretching the mold and apply its supports.

25 March>30 March 2014

The gesture seems to be always the same, more or less close and repeated depending on the desired black. The deaf light of the image through this application (in both senses) which materializes the breathing of the artist’s work in this process. Manigaud is emphasizing the image (far away from the hyperrealism where the artist hand may adjust to replicate the finest detail) to looking forward to the single most accurate representation possible to the original. It’s only to approach closer to his work to see how Manigaud impresses but does not draw the sheet.
What a subject ? Images origins ? Archives exhumed by the artist, oversized, they resume their right to say what they show, wildly topical.

Exhibition 27Feb.>30March2014

From the end of 90s, Patrice grabbed the web of the Web as a source of inspiration. In this respect, it is forerunner among international artists, while today this source of images is becoming commonplace in the extreme. First from webcam surveillance, those became decidedly urban and satellite, and, against all odds, closer to the intimacy of private, ordinary and everyday. Images volatile, intangible abruptly returned to the physical density of the classical medium, historically credited with lightness and spontaneity of watercolor, always used for its ability to fix the ephemeral.
