The paintings do not exist
Exhibition from February 15 to March 21, 2020
A former student of the Villa Arson in Nice, Marc Chevalier graduated in 1993. He participated in the creation of La Station in 1996, then moved to Paris and Berlin. Back to Nice in 2012, it is now here that he pursues his artistic research on, among other things, the representation of words: the mental image that they generate. It is from this desire that the exhibition Les tableaux n’existe pas was born. He proposes to transcend the idea of the painting. The Eva Vautier Gallery, like a singular imperfect “white cube”, with its edges and irregularities, becomes a place of fabrication in search of the truth of the imaginary painting.
