Three years after her last exhibition at the gallery, Dutch artist Katinka Lampe returns to Paris with a new set of paintings. Lampe’s work nearly always explores the question of our relationship with identity, whether it be intimate or overtly exposed. This time, she envisages the problematic construction of the image of oneself and of the other through the prism of social networks.

The artistic practice of Katrien de Blauwer, who lives and works in Antwerp (Belgium), explores the realm of collage. Rather than a category or a compartmentalising genre, this term should be interpreted as a notion of total commitment. Her artistic idyll with collage started early, when, as a young woman, she studied art and fashion. Like a prelude to her current research, her mood books from that period already displayed a compulsive desire for images and for what lies beyond the image, a fascination for the image’s construction.

“Tabula Rasala”, Björk new music video is a true visual poem

Singing is like a celebration of oxygen.


Björk just released her new music video for Tabula Rasa from Utopia album (2017). Her new creation is surely made to enjoy our neurons, celebrating oxygen : a poetic harmonious fight.
It was directed by Tobias Gremmler, who explained his concept: “When creating the video, I was deeply inspired by the music and lyrics of Tabula Rasa. The visual transformation of Björk into faun-like flowers and mountainous landscapes embodies the utopian concept of a harmonious coexistence between nature and human based on empathy.”

Blanche Gardin sublime Michel Houellebecq

Et voilà, me disais-je, le visage de l'amour,
L'authentique visage.

  L’amour, l’amour. Michel Houellebecq

A l'occasion du Printemps des poètes, ARTE Cinema invite, du 11 mars au 17 juin 2019, des artistes français et allemands à lire une oeuvre poétique choisie par eux (Facebook et Youtube).
Réalisation: Paul Ouazan (Atelier de recherche).

Toutes les lettres d’amour sont ridicules.

Fernando Pessoa

Blanche Gardin a choisi “L’amour, l’amour”, poème terriblement tendre finalement, de Michel Houellebeck. Ce sont les mots gorgés de tendresse et de résignation, de sensibilité et de désabusement de Michel Houellebecq. C'est assurément "un jeu de spécialistes".
