" Danse de travers "
Christian Lhopital 16/10/18 - 09/01/19

NOW

Exhibition Danse de travers
From 16th October 2018 to 9th January 2019


The artist Christian Lhopital and the curator Jean-Hubert Martin.

Christian Lhopital’s figures are apparitions in every way, with his drawings haunted by spirits of distant ancestors, cynical urchins, and ghosts who are prisoners of their fate. They belong to the time-honored Christian tradition of mementos mori, which the Danse Macabremost famously exemplifies. The constant metamorphosis of their varying incarnations gives attentive viewers an endless playing field of thrills.

EXHIBITION TO COME

Exhibition I am everywhere
From the 31st January to the 22nd February 2019


The artist Michail Michailov, the winner of the DRAWING NOW Prize 2018

In the exhibition, I am everywhere“ I am showing drawings of my series dust to dust in different forms. There are a lot of aspects, who can be seen by looking at the colored pencil drawings. My main issue in my art is the theme of existence. By questioning what makes sence in life I am influenced of the knowledge of how much and how less human science knows at the same time and how relative human views can be seen – just like the slightly different view of real dust and hand colored pencil dust. 
With this background I am creating an interacting space, showing an artificial microcosmos of dust, stains and grease spots, which original accumulated in my studio. This high level of drawing effort to reproduce something what is actually totaly useless, playfully raises questions of meaning and value of man and art. The unconscious gets into awareness. Things unlikely to be seen become visible.”
