LAND(E)SCAPES 离 岛 / SHANGHAI / ART CN GALLERY / SEPT-OCT 2017

 

In Search of an Unreachable Balance
From a distance, you will see graphic cut-outs, on a horizon, enhanced by golden reflections.

A dark blue musical score is drawn to offer melody without lyrics, like a cinematographic soundtrack or a piece of baroque music.

Contours are random.
Shudder.
Gold alloy, immaculate dust.
Lava, gold, metal, precious, semiprecious.
Gold = fire.
A blue between sky and sea.
Juxtapositions of darker tones.
Cubic and circular patterns evoking floral compositions. Divided space.
A distant time that may never have existed.
Horizon as landscape, an escape from a humdrum routine.

 

LIVES & WORKS  / HONG KONG / SPACE 27 / MAY 2016

with Vanessa Franklin

“I am what I am

I’m made that way

What more do you want

What do you want from me”

Jacques Prévert

With this collaborative series, photographer Vanessa Franklin continues to engage in a critical practice of representation, in order to develop a sustained critique of the immutable objectification of women. For his part, ink artist Nicolas Lefeuvre explores further the conversation between abstract ink and reality, opposing sensual but organized texture of the ink to the smooth curves of women’s bodies. Together, Franklin and Lefeuvre playthrough the figure of the mise-en-abyme: what is behind the screen, behind the appearance? Like Salomé’s dance of the Seven Veils, women are inaccessible: the veil ultimately always remains.

 

THE STATE 1 AM IN  / TOKYO / BEIGE / DECEMBER 2012

WHY?
Trigger

I started to do ink on paper following a serious accident in 2002…
Seeing death from a close distance pulled the trigger to do so.
My vision of life happened to be different.
Not in a bad nor good way…
Signs, images, sounds, smells, colors of happy and sad moments from past and present came back in a rush in the head, like a complicated electric circuit…
I am trying to put it down, out of my mind in a simple way.
A feeling of “life is nothing, and can go away in a second” becomes like a strong leitmotiv. Don’t think too much, live as if there were no tomorrows. Simple things are the key for happiness.
