Throughout the year we happily organize collective and / or monographic exhibitions in the Art Room and outside the walls in exceptional places. On these occasions, we bring artists together around a theme which is important to us and we are showing their recent works. These exhibitions can be seen for several weeks by appointment in the Art Room or open to the public during openings.
Thursday September 10, cocktail to discover our exhibition at PHILIPPE HUREL:
Association of chromies, textures, opposition or analogies of shapes, each work resonates with the high-quality pieces of furniture from Philippe Hurel's 2020 collection, at 4 Rue du Bouloi, 75001 Paris, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Noir matière, un group work of the artists Nadine Altmayer, Edward Baran and Francis Limerat
February 5 to March 16, 2018
The first step in the secret process of alchemists in their magical quest called "the work in the dark". It consists of separating and dissolving substances for future recomposition into something rare. The three artists Nadine Altmayer, Francis Limérat and Edward Baran, have this convergence in their work. Each in its way is committed to working on the constituent, even constructive, elements of their artworks. The wefts, skeletons, bones and bones take shape and take on meaning.
As with the construction of a building, this work of structure gives their work an exceptional relationship to space, although it is almost flat. Is it volume painting or exquisite sculpture? The air becomes one of their working tools. This spatiality is a breath that brings balance to the dark masses. Because here too, these three artists find themselves in the use of a palette that appears to be reduced to black.
By the reflections or absence of reflections on surfaces, shadows, transparencies, contrasts are proof that light is essential and unbreakable. These artists have the formidable technical accuracy of mastering the elements they implement as well as those they invite. Air and light are their "collateral materials".
These back and forth between destruction with a view to reconstruction. The play with concrete elements and others only induced. The shared desire to create pieces that offer a robust spatial presence shows that these three artists have touched on the success of alchemy and that the blackwork is indeed their material.
