Very happy to announce the first exhibition of 'Earth not a globe' in Belgium!

The exhibition Lettres de misarchie, Charleroi-Chicoutimi is the outcome of the first cycle of exchanges between artists in residence at the BPS22 and the Bang Centre in Chicoutimi (Canada), held under the auspices of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec [Quebec Council of Arts and Letters] (CALQ) for the past three years. The works produced by the artists during their residencies all take the construction of new worlds as their context. Some of these worlds have a foothold in reality, from where they drift towards diverse fictional forms, while others are entrenched in fantasy from the start, pushed to the extremes of their designs, radically questioning reality.
Using media such as photography, painting, installation and video, along with ceramics and textiles, the exhibition’s artists have benefitted from the change of scenery offered by their residency to develop certain aspects of their work. Lettres de misarchie is thus an invitation to journey through imaginary lands, which in some respects, however, bear a strange resemblance to our world today.

Artists : Julien Boily, Philippe Braquenier, Cindy Dumais, Sara Létourneau, Maxence Mathieu, Marie-Andrée Pellerin, Hélène Petite, Denys Tremblay, Mathieu Valade.
Curator : Pierre-Olivier Rollin

All the awards created by the Rencontres d'Arles and their partners traditionally presented at the Ancient Theatre during opening week, will be exceptionally shown and awarded at the headquarters of Kering, a key Rencontres d'Arles partner, at 40 rue de Sèvres, in the chapel of the former Laennec hospital in Paris from November 11 to 15.

I am glad to announce that "Palimpsest" will start its existence as a book. It will be published by Art Paper Editions and will be available around June. However, I need your help to launch the production and I run a crowdfunding campaign to help me realize pre-orders. If we don’t hit our goal then the publication just simply won’t see the light of day. So please consider supporting the campaign by ordering a copy of the signed book or sharing the information amongst your networks. Limited special edition prints are available only during the campaign. Two exclusive 20 by 25cm archival pigment prints can be purchased alongside with the book. You can also get great perks from the pdf file of the book to large museum quality prints. Follow the link below to have more information. GO!

Thank you for your support!
