Highlights: Naples

Naples is a city of contrasts like most of big cities. But there is something particular that makes it a dramatic figure, almost the perfect personification of Sodom and Gomorre, a city where filth is so near your body that your foot can’t help but rub an empty plastic bottle – if you are lucky….

Animal Kingdom

The animal kingdom as we conceive it in our liberal, cosummerist minds is a perpetual competition between one another, an unforgiven fight to stay at the top of the chain. This is how we have managed to justify our barbarous behaviour towards other species, the environment or even among ourselves.   Instead of interrogating over…

L’être Dissout Dans le Monde – Manoela Medeiros

L’architecture est un récit qui va au-delà du langage et des formes d’expression dites « artistiques », elle join forces avec d’autres disciplines faisant d’elle un lieu de rencontre, une passerelle temporelle tissant des liens entre passé et présent. Le travail de l’artiste brésilienne Manoela Medeiros est de nature muable, il se transforme constamment en fonction de…

Salon de Montrouge – 64th Edition

The 64th edition of the Salon de Montrouge has already took off. 52 artists in total are exhibiting their work in what is to some one of the most expected “rendez-vous” for emerging creators. During my visit I was happily surprised by the number of female artists (31) and the general mood of the pieces…

Point Zéro

This is a story of kinship, womanhood, empowerment and all the adjectives describing contemporary female relationships. You might hear this words often but if we continue to use them it’s because they describe so well the unique bond between the five young women.   It all began in Paris but blossomed in Lake Como… when…

Récit Frangeant – Hendrik González

Entre le vivant et l’inanimé une fine frontière se dessine rendant difficile la tâche de définir concrètement cet espace transitoire. Un récif frangeant est de la sorte, une frontière entre le foisonnement vital des récifs coralliens et la puissance meurtrière des vagues, le récif frangeant  est là pour protéger la faune et la flore marine….

Rinomina

Hidden in a quiet street at the Marais – one of the most concurred neighborhoods in Paris – is located a small artist run space called Rinomina, a location honouring the term “artist run space”. The first time that I visited the space was during the vernissage of the exhibition “Courage! Near Infra Red”. I…

ARCO Madrid Highlights

Art fairs are demanding and fatiguing parallel worlds. I remember the first time I visited an “encyclopedic” museum, it was the Met and I was old enough to bare with the queuing, the noise and the commotion of bodies. After 4 hours of seeing and absorbing the most I could, I descended to the cafeteria…
