‘Paysages du temps zéro’ (Landscapes from time zero) gathers recent works on paper by Vidya Gastaldon. The title of the exhibition does not refer to the time of childhood but rather the time of the first drawings by the artist after her art studies.
‘Warning Graphic Content’, brings together all of Jeremy Deller’s print and poster works from 1993-2021. It will be exhibited in two locations concurrently: at The Modern Institute, Glasgow (06.11.2021 – 22.01.2022) and at Art : Concept, Paris.
Graduated from École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris with honors. His work has been exhibited in Avignon (Collection Lambert), Paris (Bastille Design Center, Palais des Beaux-Arts, La Villette, Progress Gallery…) and Berlin (Galerie Noah Klink). In 2019-2020, he was a member of the French Academy in Madrid, at the Casa de Velázquez.
He uses various photographic sources or personal archives to create fictions where the composition obeys its own rules and creates a new meaning. By ridding each element of its original functionality, a formal game is established where the important thing becomes the path that crosses the work and associates each part to the whole. The image thus appears as the receptacle of inner visions. The subject is a bait, the starting point of an artificial structure in which the artist comes to trap the reality of the starting pattern.

After a selection process among more than 500 applications and the audition of the 11 nominees, the jury awarded the Emerige 2020 Revelations Grant to Loucia Carlier. In this context, we are pleased to accompany the winner for her solo exhibition at the gallery.
Loucia Carlier was born in 1992 in Paris, she lives and works in Paris.
Her work revolves around printmaking and its different implementations: embossing, printing, traces. Images, objects, symbols and eras are printed on the surface of her sculptures and paintings. Her pieces form stacks of history(s) and thus produce a strange compression of time. The vertical hierarchy of knowledge gives way to a horizontal organisation of information. This stratification allows the formation of hybrid landscapes. These cobbled-together bas-reliefs propose disturbing scenarios and bear witness to a dystopian but amused vision of a possible future.
