The Galerie is delighted to exhibit, in its Marais Rive Droite space, the work of Evi Keller, who will present her solo show from May 31 until July 18. Entitled MATIÈRE-LUMIÈRE, it will be inaugurated on Saturday May 30 (3:00pm-6:00pm) as part of the CHOICES Collectors Weekend.
After the original presentation of «Matière-Lumière» at the most recent Nuit Blanche, and the ensuing exhibition as part of the YIA Art Fair in the Saint Denys du Saint Sacrement church, this exhibition embodies the initiatory journey of the artist and marks the presentation to the world of this new form of artistic expression.
A projection room will be dedicated to showing the audiovisual work «Matière-Lumière [Towards the light - silent transformations]», the veritable cradle of «Matière-Lumière», at 7 rue de Saintonge. Her photographic imprints, bearing witness to a transformation process, crystallise the experiences of life and embody them in spaces of transition, outside the simple markers of the real. The «Matière-Lumière» experience continues with installations at 5 rue de Saintonge. The passage from one to the other unites the real and the imaginary, the exterior and interior worlds, materiality and spirituality in an experience outside of space and time, leading from absolute darkness towards the light.
The complexity of «Matière-Lumière», having neither references nor affiliations, is part of its great richness. There is no affiliation to a «defined» artistic current, nor reference to any particular means of expression. It’s about a fusion of different means of expression, the crystallisation of artistic approaches such as photography, painting, sculpture and audio-visual work.
On the occasion of its 90th anniversary, the Gallery is opening up to photography, audio-visual creation and a new artistic form.
