In the beginning…

The Eric & Valérie Galéa Gallery Presents “in the beginning…” , a selection of works by sculptor Ariel Moscovici From October 20th through November 11, 2018 at the Chapelle Sainte-Foy des Beaumettes.

 

About forty artworks: Sculptures made of steel, bronze, granite and marble as well as paintings and prints in relation to the works in volume will bring their testimony of 40 years of career.

 

Ariel is inspired by the Bible. In the Book of the Genesis, “Bereshit”, the first word of the Bible in Hebrew means “in the beginning”.

 

He interprets the creation of the world as if his multifaceted sculptures were capable of containing all the forms of life to come.

 

Sometimes he uses several works to create a journey in time with points and a space.

 

The words of his language are stone, metal, clay.

 

He finds that the idiom that suits him best is that of the shape, the volume, the texture, the nuance and the color.

 

He does not explain his works because he does not want to demystify them. It offers you your own interpretation.

FNB Art fair, Johannesbourg du 22 au 24 août 2014

Bonjour,
Voici le programme de la galerie pour notre exposition à Johannesbourg, pendant la FNB Art Fair, la troisième année de notre présence au Sandton Convention Center.

Cette année, trois artistes sud-africains :

– Huw MORRIS, un photographe, déjà présent à la galerie depuis le début de l’année avec un grand succès pour sa série “So, this is Desire?”, une série de onze photos traitant des sujets dérangeants de la jalousie pendant la période de l’Apartheid en Afrique du Sud. Jalousie de couple mais aussi affectueuse par rapport aux enfants et leur connivence avec les domestiques. La nouvelle série s’appelle “Litmus” mais chuttt, c’est encore en préparation donc un peu de patience pour les premieres infos. (Crédits photos Huw Morris)

-Bruce CLARKE, peintre engagé dans lutte contre l’Apartheid à partir de son studio parisien, notamment aux côté d’Ernest Pignon Ernest et Velicovik lors de l’élection de Nelson Mandela en 1994. Il se consacre maintenant aux droits de l’homme et notamment via sa très importante exposition simultanée pour la commémoration des 20 ans du génocide des Tutsis au Rwanda.

-Andries BOTHA, sculpteur sud-africain engagé et déterminé, notamment dans la protection des éléphants mais pas seulement pour une approche de protection de la nature mais pour la liberté et la puissance que l’animal procure. Une sculpture représentant un éléphanteau, relié à l’Univers par un cordon ombilical qui vient de rompre sera la pièce majeure. Il y aura également une imposante photo, (110×240 cm) représenta la radiographie d’une sculpture présentée en Hollande en 2012 (voir video ici : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRR6sBMBxSo ) (crédit photos Patrick McGee)
