Gérald Panighi

gerald_portrait

 

They were all reincarnated

Gérald’s work is an interdependent association between an image carefully neglected with a powerful reference and a text diverted from everyday life situations.

The gap between the two triggers laughter or smile. Gérald’s humor is often abrupt, sometimes dark, stressing our humanity and our imperfections, referring us back to our own reflection through the prism of his vision. In addition to his new original works, he will present two works made in conjunction with Villa Arson graduate Caroline Rivalan, as well as a limited edition made especially for the occasion.

His guest, Philippe Jusforgues excels in the art of accommodating strangeness, he leads us into the world of collage and photography.

« Upon seeing Gerald Panighi’s works for the first time, evidently my eyes strayed to the stunning explosion of work casually invading an entire wall as if they were ordinary Post-Its. There is much to see and read in Gerald’s work. It may sound silly, but I immediately said to myself that he must have feasted on a lot of Strange as many boys of his generation and perhaps even read alarming issues of ”Detective” in his childhood – where the punches, despite the hyper-expressivity of the individuals drawn by Angelo Di Marco, are not only onomatopoeic. In these early days of his life, he may have also remained puzzled by Magritte’s “This is not a pipe”, an attractive anti-tautology after all…

If the representation is not real, the combined dissociation of the process beloved of the Surrealists has a more abstruse charm. Nothing is more enigmatically captivating than the assumed dysfunction of the image. We enjoyed it with Magritte as we revered it in the 80s, in the trivial world of Glenn Baxter’s illustrations… The absurd is the answer to all occlusive, ridiculous speculation and it is precisely that that manages to be deliciously enjoyable (without the slightest pretence) in the work of Gerald Panighi. »

Frédérique Nalbandian

portrait ainsi soit il


Frédérique Nalbandian

 

Frédérique Nalbandian is a graduate of the École Pilote Internationale d’Arts et de Recherches, Villa Arson, Nice. Since these years spent experimenting with forms in the making, she has been refining her science of materials and her interest in the vast and troubling question of the flow of time. Soap still occupies a predominant place in her work as a sculptor, but also plaster and glass. On occasion, these substances are loaded with water, air, carmine red pigment and coal powder, become impregnated and even bruised. Chemical exchanges thus take place in installations that follow the laws of fallow landscapes or interact with architectural spaces full of meaning. In these works, from which emerge as many balanced volumes as “intranquilous” structures, the artist uses motifs such as the circle and the column. In other works that say something about man’s relationship with the world, it is a question of the ear and understanding, of hands in prayer and near silence. Here, receptacles with their large surfaces of vibration, there, concretions made of folds and meanders like those of the brain for example. Undeniably, these works, because of their repetitive force and their power to integrate linguistic signs – one must listen to the titles the artist attributes to his works -, impose the idea of a quest that is haunted by the poetic and haunted by what makes it a prodigy: the blossoming of meaning, its possible dehiscence, without recourse to argumentation or the slightest dialectical system. Finally, it must be said that Frédérique Nalbandian executes a number of drawings in which a weaving between references to the history of art and imprecise anatomy emerges with varying degrees of sharpness on the paper. A partition, one could say, between what would be the desire to describe the whirling of the sky and the desire to put man back at the center of the system …

Natacha Lesueur

natacha recadre

,

Born in 1971 in Cannes, Natacha Lesueur studied at the Villa Arson in Nice. Her first solo exhibition took place in 1996. She won the Ricard Prize in 2000 and resided at the Villa Medici in Rome in 2002-2003. She has exhibited in many countries in Europe, USA, Korea and China. The Charlotte Moser Gallery in Geneva and the Clara Maria Selz Gallery in Dusseldorf represent her work. Her works are present in the most prestigious public and private collections. A retrospective of his work was published by the MAMCO in Geneva in 2011.  She lives and works in Paris.

 

Work,

 

The whole of Natacha Lesueur’s work is, since 93, essentially photographic. If photography ultimately determines her relationship to the image, she constructs her images as paintings. The photographic image comes to pose like a varnish on the compositions. Her artistic preoccupations revolve around the body, appearance, pageantry and the intimate relationship between flesh and food. This body, the subject of predilection, has been subjected in different series of images to different treatments that involve constraint, staging, and mask (between adornment and camouflage). She produces series, which follow one another without resembling each other, unfolding in an infinite variety where notions such as: the motif, the tour de force, the trompe l’oeil, the optical traps resonate with each other and make the very unity of the work. Half of his photographic production confronts the body with food (aspics as bathing caps (97-98), salmon skin as bun fishnet, legs covered with pork strainer (97-98), mouths whose teeth are seeds of all kinds (00), mounted pieces of food and hair (02-07), etc.). ) In other images, women’s bodies are marked with pearl imprints (94-96), vision test (00-01), sleeping men’s faces are encrusted with feather marks (04), nails are carved (97-03), young girls with red varnished teeth burst out laughing (07-08). In the series produced between (2011-14), she explores the figure of the actress Carmen Miranda and opens to the moving image . She uses the body as an inscription surface, a more or less regular support for the culinary preparations or the prints she places on it. Object of covetousness, the body is fragmented, it is one, it is all bodies.

Jacqueline Gainon

 

Ainsi soit-il

 

It is around the dilemma between image and painting, between memory and fantasy, between good manners and forbidden games that Jacqueline Gainon’s exhibition in the space of the Galerie Eva Vautier is articulated. Placed under the sign of color, two series of large blue and red paintings confront each other in diametrically opposed registers.

 

Executed in a naïve, almost licked style, the blue series calls upon the artist’s childhood memories: it is based on a free interpretation of photographs of mountain excursions from a family album. The original images, taken by the artist’s father in the hinterland of Nice, are here the subject of a series of plastic operations. Their transposition in a monumental format, the passage from black and white to color and from the smooth rendering of photography to pictorial materiality gives them an undeniable sumptuousness. Finally, everything that was landscape is replaced by a pastel blue background that is more reminiscent of a child’s bedroom wallpaper than a summer sky. The picturesque elements still present in the first versions of the series – panoramas, rocky peaks or calvaries – have disappeared to give way to a space/time that is as abstract as it is timeless.

 

Between pious image and bad dream, these paintings show strange, incredibly peaceful portraits in which the artist, still a little girl, and her family members stand against each other in a kind of half-sleep. Their eyes are closed and when they are open, they seem definitely absent as if each one was looking inside himself ignoring the presence of the other. Sometimes their heads fall to the side or their faces fade away, while their bodies seem to float in this blue expanse. Their pale complexion suggests the worst.

 

If the strangeness of the scene is due to the collective standing sleep, it is counterbalanced by the tender gestures of this father and mother towards their four children. There is something touching, still vibrant that gives hope for a happy ending. The mind likes to imagine this ideal family, alive and well, eyes open to the photographic lens because these images have something universal, they could just as well be ours. But here the optic is replaced by the artist’s gaze, which obviously treats his childhood memories in a psychoanalytical way through the operations of displacement it imposes on them. Thus, these fragments of the past reappear as moments lost forever, as if the artist was unable to restore the joyful temporality of his childhood, but instead offered him eternal rest. The photographic evidence is replaced by the opacity of the painting with its lumpy and tormented materiality.

 

With tenderness and humor, Jacqueline Gainon distorts the idea of family happiness all the more obsolete as it has gone to hell, thus affirming something of the order of unbelief in the family. Behind the initial naivety of these great icons, which are so many variations on the theme of the Virgin and Child, but which could also be likened to the popular practice of ex-votos by their deliberately clumsy side, lies an inexorable sense of loss. No, painting is not reassuring, it is harsh and impure. And isn’t the role of the artist to confuse and disturb? So be it.

 

As for the red series, it is infinitely more gestural and expressionist. It obeys a very fluid pictorial treatment that leaves room for colored drips and juices. If the material is more transparent than in the blue series, this series of paintings is also darker literally and figuratively.

 

It depicts a disturbing huis-clos in which a little girl dressed in a red dress becomes the prey of a group of young boys armed with bats and guns. We find the girl who appeared in the images of the blue series with her fifties dress and who is assumed to be the artist’s sister. But whereas in the previous series the child was as wise as an image, here she is represented in movement, in perilous postures induced by the violence inflicted on her by her torturers. Blindfolded, she is bound and beaten. Her small body can barely stand upright because she is so badly mauled. She ends up falling to the ground.

 

It is difficult not to be touched by what appears to be a distant trauma, especially since the girl seems to be pushed out of the picture. If only we could be given the opportunity to help her.

 

But who exactly are her aggressors who barely come out of the shadows and whose silhouette seems to belong to the dark background of the paintings? Why are they attacking the girl? They look like members of an anonymous child militia. Their features are erased as if violence has no face. The eye, it is true, is entirely turned towards the red dress that twirls in the space of the painting and ends up distracting our attention. We then forget that the boys are still in short pants and that their gestures, if we subject them to close scrutiny, are a bit clumsy and borrowed. What if it was just a game? Jacqueline Gainon sows doubt. So secret militia or a bunch of scouts?

 

We end up wondering if the object of desire of these young people is not also ours. It must be said that the artist has organized her compositions by dramatizing at will these playlets with their folded perspective and the plunging light which come to stretch out to us on a plate the almost erotic body of this child with the pink flesh all dressed in red. Here we are in the skin of the wolf. Between abuse and forbidden games, these nightmarish and suffocating scenes thwart the imagery of Épinal of the blue series and all that she could state of reassuring and ideal on the notion of family but also and especially on the idea of painting. They involve us in the erotic game of representation of which we become the voyeurs.

 

Opposite this very intense pictorial series are extraordinary small drawings in Indian ink and gouache felt pen where the fight seems to be rebalanced in places. It happens then that the girl manages to keep her aggressors in respect. The victim thus becomes the executioner for the greatest delight of us viewers. To finish, the little red riding hood in her light muslin dress, which one would like to see in muslin, hoists herself up on an enormous skull where she manages to keep herself in balance, thus making a fist at death. So be it.

Gregory Forstner was born in Douala, Cameroon, to a French mother and an Austrian father. He interrupted his high school studies and decided to study at the Academy of Applied Arts in Vienna, Austria, then at the Villa Arson in Nice. He then worked in Nice for several years.
In 2008, winner of a grant from the French Ministry of Culture for a one-year residency in New York. He settled there with his family.

 

The Collector’s Fiancée

She was tall, she was blonde, she was the collector’s fiancée. I made her nourishing hips (in addition to the buttocks, I like women’s hips), swimmer’s shoulders (I am a swimmer), Naples yellow hair (I am blond) and a colonial helmet from the African bush (I was born in Cameroon). Might as well paint the girls we like to fuck. The stereotypes have stiff skin, their surface is gold-plated. The desirable girl is therefore blonde, pulpy, with hard pointed breasts, her lips are red and shiny. Smoke passes through my fingers. I paint with sugar.

 

I have a direct link with my childhood. I am there when I want. When I think of cloud, I imagine it blue. In painting mountains are always blue. The child on the beach draws the blue cloud. The sky is blue too and the sea below is blue as well but deeper. In the middle it’s “empty”, it’s the white of the paper that doesn’t ask for anything. It took me a long time to paint landscapes. I have no problem with the wind, the sea, the grass, the cows, all that. When they arrive in the painting, they are there to pose a scene. The Fall of Icarus is a good example. The subject has gone underwater, only the ridiculous feet and the burning calves are visible at the bottom right. In the meantime, every detail of the landscape allows for a dive.

 

Art is compensatory. The painting does not try to say something. It is about a moment. You have to pinch yourself to believe it! No kidding, painting is nothing but to pinch yourself to believe in it. There is History and the little story, but in truth, it is always a sensation that slips away to be renewed elsewhere and differently. One hides behind the images of others to appear bigger. The rest is conversation. Others have to have fun, alone, we don’t exist. Here, the sky is as blue as its clouds, and in the wind the Bride pulls The Collector. The object of the figure is its presence, its appearance is its effect. Do not look elsewhere. The child begins by drawing what seems essential to him, arms, legs, head, and he marvels. I have grown up and I paint what I like: breasts, eyes, pool cues, assholes and hips, scuba divers and then sometimes dogs – you always have to paint the things you want – or the things you hate.

 

I prefer to paint pretty girls. Sometimes the paint paints them ugly, but I paint them beautiful. Painting sometimes decides otherwise because around a girl there is always something going on that you don’t anticipate. In life, it is the same. It is necessary that the girl complains a little so that the painting turns, she makes the pout, a grimace, and one cracks. While looking for the air of the hostess, we perceive the air of the painting in its bottom. By forcing stereotypes, the natural explodes. By dint of making the gesture, he leaves alone.

Pauline Brun

Pauline Brun

 

Pauline Brun began her training in classical and contemporary dance at the Conservatoire Régional de Nice before entering the École Supérieure d’Arts Plastiques, the Villa Arson, and then the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris where she developed her work in sculpture, installation and video. It is since her plastic research that she redirects herself towards dance and performance and integrates the ex.e.r.ce training at the National Choreographic Center of Montpellier. There, she experimented with stage space, developed a choreographic work and began various collaborations on dramaturgical and scenographic issues. Invited for the Museum On/Off exhibition at the Centre Georges Pompidou in 2016, she wrote the performance GRAND BAIN for the space of the permanent collection. For the Nuit Européenne des Musées at MAC VAL, she presents the performance ÉTALON PAR DÉFAUT. She also participates in group exhibitions with installations and videos. In addition, she is a performer, accompanies the staging or designs spaces for choreographers Fanny De Chaillé, Paula Pi, Pauline Simon, Ingrid Berger Myhre and Gaetan Bulourde.

 

 

 

 

En Suspens

 

To approach Pauline Brun’s work, one would have to start immediately by isolating two spaces: the physical, geographical or architectural one, the one that finally delimits, and the more metaphysical one, of creation, of the very logic of the work in progress. These two spaces have their own parameters. They have their own rules and laws and allow the artist to operate within a framework that imposes its limits, the contexts that govern it. Pauline Brun’s work is therefore an attempt to apply within these limits, a succession of operations, gestures that will push back these boundaries and in doing so, erase them to create a third space which is that of the work.

A space that will bring them all together to capture, in one movement, the vibrations and friction of elements that at first seemed to be isolated, but which suddenly, and together, make sense. If we isolate from the start two spaces, perhaps we can also evoke two gestures which are their own: the turning around, and the injection of narrative processes. Pauline Brun’s works are thought for spaces. It will always be a work that will echo the place that is supposed to house it. Thus, the challenge of the work is to use the constraints of the place in order to bring about an upheaval that I call here inversion. Here, a wooden plank is transformed into a suspended surface, a necessity of the form by the action of the paint which imposes its weight and these physical properties for a drying time. There the walls or partitions are used as raw material for the elaboration of a sculpture, of which one could not say whether it is a sculpture or the base waiting for his work. It seems that the wall itself has set itself in motion and in movement and that, in a great effort, it has managed to push back the material that encircled and constituted it, thus extracting itself from its condition. The space itself, caught in its physical constraints, is thus treated as a material that the artist comes to sculpt as he pleases, pulling, twisting and pushing it to the extreme. Isolating these elements, taking them out of their initial context and turning them over to make them what they are not, is therefore to ask the question of what they are. It is by asking this question that narrative games begin. The artist voluntarily leaves his trace in the manipulation of these spaces, and plays with it. Blurring the tracks, creating false ones, erasing some, accentuating the line at times. Isolating the constituent material from the space and treating it as an object is to give it a body. The works and the space thus bear the traces of their own history, of which we can never say whether they are part of a fiction or document the actual realization of the plastic work. A body bearing the stigmata of a game or a confrontation between it and the artist. A whole poetic and imaginative vocabulary is thus deployed which makes the bodies reason among themselves, the materials and the forms. The cut-out of the partition reveals the wall that supports it, thus stratifying the architecture of the White Cube to better reveal its double belonging, in time and space, to the theoretical and architectural universe. In the same gesture, the White Cube returns to its condition as a historical object, the one that can be told.

 

And if the artist leaves traces, proofs of her passage, it is because Pauline Brun’s work is ultimately nothing other than the practice of these spaces. It is through the experience of manipulating these different objects that the work appears. It is because the partition of the wall has become sculpture, that the space can be read in its poetic dimension, revealing the story it carries, a story that would not have been revealed if the artist’s gesture had not discovered it. It is thus indeed a base that one observes, the very one that supports the practice and the experience which, thus, joined together in a gesture make work. In the end, it is through the body, and through the body of the artist so often staged or brought into play in her work (and we suddenly make the link between this red surface taken in her time off and the costume that the artist wears in some of her videos, a work that is not presented here and which therefore allows the time necessary to clean and dry the costume), that Pauline Brun unveils the spaces in which her work takes shape. And it is through the experience of these spaces that she manages to create the one in which the work of art unfolds.

Joseph Dadoune

 

Le Musée Noir

Ultimate photograhy

 

Joseph Dadoune made a name for himself in the West and in the Middle East in the early 2000s thanks to remarkable video installations and an original photographic work. On the occasion of a solo exhibition (Khamsin Photography, 2007) at the Böhm Trade Center in Düsseldorf, he declared: “Today I tend to think that the filmed image is the most appropriate semantics, and that cinema makes it possible to talk about a subject by concentrating its multiple aspects […] The installation, through its format (montage, real-life scenes, device) also raises the question of how to pose a camera in the face of these lived things while putting pathos or sentimentalism at a distance. If my aim is to use documents as a starting point, I do not wish to make a documentary work. …] I don’t try to create a fiction from reality. Rather, I seek to open doors to make connections possible. »

 

Joseph Dadoune’s work has never ceased to question Judaism, post-colonialism, the periphery and homosexuality. His films and photographs shed light on these archaic symbolic violences.

 

For any creator – with a sense of history – a question is always asked: what stone should be added? For Dadoune, it would rather be: what image to add to the images already there? Alain Badiou is said to have spoken of new fictions.

 

Like Ad Reinhardt, Joseph Dadoune has decided to bury the image, without however making a clean sweep of the figure, of the sign. Reinhardt liked to consider his Black Paintings as “a free, unmanipulable, useless, unsaleable, irreducible, unphotographable, unreproducible, inexplicable icon. “Joseph Dadoune’s Black Boxes are in their own way part of the modernist logic of Reinhardt’s Ultimate Paintings. These works, as dry, hermetic and closed as they may be – to use the artist’s words – nevertheless echo very tangible realities. Counter Composition V (2011) evokes a vulva as much as the eponymous work by Theo van Doesburg (1924), which earned him a presentation by Galerie Le Minotaure last October at the Fiac, alongside works by Hans Bellmer, Marcel Duchamp, Louise Bourgeois, Man Ray and Pierre Molinier. Contemporary history is never far away, Black Tunnel (2013) symbolizes one of the underground galleries built by the Palestinians to transport food between Gaza and Egypt. Palm Box reverses the Epinal fifties imagery of the resort. As for Black Museum (2011), in the face of which, a champion of relational aesthetics could fantasize about multiple collective fictions, we prefer to take the time to question the future lives of the White Cube. What is behind the White Cube? What symbolic violence? What ideology? What utopia seals the Black Museum? Brian O’Doherty’s essays then appear to be highly topical and necessary (see “Inside the White Cube: The Ideology of the Gallery Space” in Artforum, 1976).

 

These photographs, conceived in a studio with windows without frames or shutters – like eyes without eyelids – open to the outside, in permanent connection with the street, neighbors, passers-by, life, necessarily refer to an exteriority, to an Other. Each photograph attempts to answer the questions that run through this ensemble: what happens beyond the image? Behind the image? Behind the black box?

 

Just like the artist’s studio, these photographs are not closed works, on the contrary, they impose neither an authoritarian point of view nor a doxa. They are open works in the sense that Umberto Eco meant.

Yosef Joseph Dadoune, Lost in the sea / Find / Forget, 2017

 

Joseph Dadoune‘s work is profoundly marked by the questioning and overcoming of borders – be it those separating East from West, central power from the periphery, or the imaginary from the real. At the confluence of video, photography, architecture and drawing, his research blends social engagement and metaphysical reflection with artistic practice. Among his outstanding works are his film Sion (2006-2007), produced by the Musée du Louvre with actress Ronit Elkabetz; Impossible Calendars (2013), exhibited notably at the Tel Aviv Museum during the celebration of the centenary of Dada; and, more recently, Barrière Protectrice (2017), a collection of autobiographical war drawings, published by Éditions Arnaud Bizalion.

Poèmes Hannah Arendt
Colored oil pastel on Hänemhule paper 190 gr
84,1 cm x 59,4 cm
Série de 43 dessins

The archetype of a letter is a stain or a line. The use of German, which I don’t speak, allows me to project myself elsewhere, to be someone else. Another language is then installed. The loves found in Hannah Arendt’s poems sometimes become flowers, sometimes writings metamorphosed into solar wheat, sometimes titles: You and Me. Me and You, the double arrows, refer to the comings and goings of yellow or pink springs, to the subjectivity of lovers lying in wheat fields, to extrasolar landscapes. The geographical and temporal landmarks are erased and give way to a white and “sound” background, on which traumas and memories are inscribed.

Fleurs / After War. Blind Spot / Tel Aviv, 2015-2016
Series of 36 black oil pastels on paper

I made these pastels in my studio, in the south of Tel Aviv, the neighborhood of Eritrean refugees facing the towers of the wealthy “Gated Communities”. The girls and boys who died by the whims of the Gods in Ovid here become flowers or trees, recalling the metaphors of the sheaves of flowers woven by the Romans for their dead. Flowers / After War. Blind Spot are those flowers blackened by physical and political pollution. Their greased iron stems, their “legs” and their roots are like the bases on which the anti rocket missiles are fixed. They are vertical beauties; seen from afar, they form a field of hybrid black flowers where feminine and masculine play the game of seduction.

BEN

 

 

Ben, pseudonym of Benjamin Vautier, born July 18, 1935 in Naples, Italy, is a French artist of Swiss origin.

He became known to the public at the end of the 1960s, particularly through his “writings” in various media and forms. Part of the post-modern artistic avant-garde, Ben is one of the main founders of the Fluxus Group. He is an artist known for his performances, installations and writings.

 

Thus, universes as far removed from the artistic field as ethnism, ego or truth have entered his work. Ben enjoys an incredible popularity thanks to his “writings” that combine impertinence and accuracy of purpose.

Ben, whose real name is Benjamin Vautier, is a French artist of Swiss origin, born July 18, 1935, in Naples (Italy), from an Irish and Occitan mother and a French-speaking Swiss father. He is the grandson of Marc Louis Benjamin Vautier, a Swiss painter of the nineteenth century. He lives his first five years in Naples. After the declaration of the Second World War in 1939, Ben and his mother multiplied their travels: Switzerland, Turkey, Egypt, Italy…, to finally settle in Nice in 1949. He studied at the Imperial Park School and at the boarding school of the Stanislas College. His mother found him a job at the bookstore Le Nain bleu as an errand boy, then bought him a bookstore-paper shop. At the end of the 1950s, he sold it to open a small store, whose façade he transformed by accumulating many objects and in which he sold second-hand records.
Soon, his store became a place for meetings and exhibitions where the main members of what was to become the School of Nice met: César, Arman, Martial Raysse, etc. Close to Yves Klein and seduced by the New Realism, he was convinced that “art must be new and bring a shock”. In 1955, he discovered the shape of the banana and produced a series of drawings. This series marked the beginning of his graphic research. In 1959, he begins his “living sculptures”: he signs people in the street, his friends, and even his family. In 1965, he signs his own daughter, Eva Cunégonde, then three months old. At the beginning of the 1960s, several artists try to appropriate the world as a work of art. Ben will sign anything he finds: “holes, mystery boxes, kicks, God, chickens, etc.”. Ben will sign everything he finds: “holes, mystery boxes, kicks, God, chickens, etc.”, linking art and life, explaining that everything is art and that everything is possible in art. He joined the Fluxus movement in October 1962, following a meeting with George Maciunas in London. Between 1960 and 1963, he developed the notion of appropriation, of everything is art and everything is possible in art. He then began his series of “Tas”, heaping earth and waste on plots of land and signing them. In 1965, in his store, he creates a gallery of three by three meters in the mezzanine: “Ben doute de tout. He exhibits there Martial Raysse, Albert Chubac, Daniel Biga, Marcel Alocco, Bernar Venet, Serge Maccaferri, Serge III, Sarkis, Robert Filliou, Christian Boltanski, etc.”. In 1972, at the request of Harald Szeemann, he took part in Documenta V, where he met with Robert Filliou, Marcel Broodthaers, Giuseppe Chiari, Joseph Beuys, among others. In 1977, the group exhibition “About Nice” inaugurating the Centre Georges Pompidou was a kind of Parisian recognition of the research carried out and matured outside the capital, by the School of Nice. In the preface to the catalog, Pontus Hulten wrote: “Contemporary art would not have had the same history without the activities and encounters that took place in the Nice region”. He entrusted the preparation of the event to Ben. At the beginning of the 1980s, on returning from a year spent in Berlin at the DAAD, thanks to a scholarship, he met young artists: Salomé, Luciano Castelli, Helmut Middendorf and members of the German Violent Painting. On his return to Nice, he organizes with Marc Sanchez an exhibition-exchange between what he calls the French Figuration libre and young German painters. Robert Combas and Hervé Di Rosa, Robert Combas and Hervé Di Rosa are then exhibited in his house in Saint Pancrace, and François Boisrond and Rémi Blanchard, among others, at La galerie de la Marine in Nice. Very involved in the contemporary scene, he has always supported young artists and gives his point of view on all current events, whether cultural, political, anthropological or artistic, in his regular and prolific newsletters. He has been living and working since 1975 on the heights of Saint-Pancrace, a hill in Nice. Ben’s works are found in the world’s largest private and public collections, including the MoMA in New York, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney, the Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig in Vienna, the MUHKA in Antwerp, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Solothurn Museum, the Musée National d’Art Moderne in Paris, the Musée d’Art Moderne et d’Art Contemporain in Nice, the M. A.C. of Marseille, the M.A.C. of Lyon. Married with Annie Baricalla since 1964, he has two children, Éva Cunégonde and François Malabar.

 

In the post-duchampian context, and influenced by John Cage, George Maciunas, Dada and Isidore Isou, asking the question “What to do after Duchamp”, Ben chose the whole world as his studio. From 1963 to 1967, Ben wrote ten concept films. The first one was a poster statement stuck on the walls of Nice and Cannes at the time of the Cannes Film Festival.

 

The Writings: His first painting of words seems to be “Il faut manger. You have to sleep. ” from 1953, a simple affirmation of life. However, this simplicity conveys a strong concept: Ben produces an art of the idea, long before the beginning of conceptual art as defined in most specialized books. At that time Ben was looking for new art forms, to talk about art and the art world. He then developed through his writings numerous and varied themes (ego, doubt, death, sex, the new, money…). The sentences that Ben writes can be truths, comments (on the world, current events), scenarios, invectives (to the public, to the art world), observations… Appearing suddenly in the visual field of the spectator, they bring a smile, and often give food for thought.
The signature: He started signing in 1958: paintings, people, photos. Ben thought that if art is only a question of signature, then why not make a painting with just his own signature. Working on the concepts of self, ego and artist identity, Ben, “seems to say that since art is synonymous with the artist’s signature to the public, the more visible it is, the more the public will want that work. {…} At the same time, Ben talks about the ego/ego and the importance of self-reference in art, the exploration of the self and the ego – both subjectively and as a subject. “His 1960 manifesto “I Ben I Sign” shows the radicality of his approach.
Gestures / Actions: Down to earth, Ben’s gestures are similar to George Brecht’s “events”. They are also called “actions”. His first gestures date back to 1960, theorized within the framework of what he calls “appropriations”. Initially little documented, they are then photographed and titled, usually on a black support, with a succinct description. These gestures show small actions, a priori banal, daily, not very spectacular, that Ben puts forward, in a Fluxus spirit.
The performance “Life never stops” is one of Ben’s phrases. Reenacting the codes of happenings and performances developed in the United States in the 1950s (Black Mountain College, Allan Kaprow), Ben mixes life and art from the 1960s to produce performances called “Vomir”, “Hurler”, or “Dire la vérité”, which he performs near his store on rue Tonduti de l’Escarène or in the streets of Nice, whether or not he warns the public.

In 2010 Ben creates in Nice in the center of the Libération district the “Espace à débattre”.  A place that came to life through many events.

 

Three years later Ben proposes this place to his daughter Eva who sets up the gallery Eva Vautier. She produces many exhibitions, performances, debates, bringing together citizens from all walks of life, helping to defend these artists and contemporary art and creates a real dynamic contributing to give a new breath to the local artistic life.

Le Bizart Baz’art

 

 

Produced for the exhibition “Shopping: a Century of Art and Consumer Culture” at the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt and the Tate Modern in Liverpool in 2002.

The Bizart Baz’art is a construction on a human scale; a hut in which the spectator is invited to enter. Decorated with objects, toys, slogans, pictures, images, words, symbols, the hut is in fact conceived as a “meeting place for secret services”, where agents would come to do their business.
Ben’s idea was to propose a gigantic installation on the theme of the unsaleable. But as I was looking for the unsaleable,” he explains, “I realized that the company’s shredding machine could swallow it all and sell it all. So I called it “everything is merchandise because everything is art, there’s no escape.

The profusion, the disorder of objects and words, blurring the legibility of each detail paradoxically gives meaning to the whole by showing a world saturated, cluttered, suffocated with objects. The title of the work, Le Bizart Baz’art, through a play on words with the word “art”, leads us towards a questioning of art. The questioning is fuelled by the inscriptions contained in the work. On the edge of a hollowed-out, perforated canvas, one can read for example “There was art here. There is no more art. Is it art too ? ». The artist wonders about the fragile limits between art and non-art, between art and life, art and poetry.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Etrangement l’œuvre de Ben évoque à la fois Arman par l’accumulation des objets et Yves Klein par les vides qu’elle encadre. Si l’œuvre de Ben semble faire allusion au Nouveau Réalisme, elle s’inscrit principalement dans l’héritage de Fluxus, groupement informel auquel Ben participa dans les années 60. Il n’y a qu’à lire l’inscription « les musée ne servent à rien, rentrez chez vous » pour flirter avec l’affirmation d’un art qui se mêle à la vie, en dehors des musées, et toucher à l’humour et l’insolence propre à Fluxus.

La place même de l’œuvre, dans le hall du musée, entre l’intérieur et l’extérieur, est révélatrice de la position de Ben dont on connaît à la fois les œuvres exposées dans les musées et les produits dérivés, cartables, trousses, agendas et t­shirts vendus dans les supermarchés. Depuis toujours l’artiste cherche à défaire les frontières entre l’art et la vie.

 

The CIC Lyonnaise de Banque exhibits Bizart Baz’art by the artist Ben.
