Opening Saturday, January 14 at 6 PM

La Maison des Arts, the contemporary arts center of the city of Malakoff, is giving carte blanche to artists whose work was the subject of solo exhibitions. Thereby, Aude Cartier, the director, entrusted Renaud Auguste-Dormeuil, who personally wished to invite Anaël Pigeat as co-curator, the conception of an group exhibition which will take place from January 14th till March 4th, 2012.

Time Capsule is based on a notion that we find in the medieval painting: several temporalities are collected in one work. Two faces (the same person) are juxtaposed inside the same image, become then an architecture of time. This principle that art historians call “simultaneous story” will be investigated through the prism of contemporary works of young or experienced artists. The exhibition will collect at the same time videos, objects and pictures.

Opening: Thursday, November 24 at 7.00 PM

El proyecto que presenta Otto Berchem consiste en un programa cromático en el que el artista asigna un color a las letras del alfabeto basándose, en primera instancia, en el código metafísico creado por el poeta uruguayo Jorge Adoum y la condición médica de la sinestesia en las que algunas personas ven colores en vez de letras o ven colores cuando oyen música. Partiendo de estos código Otto crea su propio alfabeto y dibuja piezas textos en los cuales pide perdón explorando el concepto de la culpa y el fracaso y las poéticas que giran a su alrededor.

Blue Monday

For his exhibition Blue Monday, Otto Berchem presents a project that is inspired by the metaphysical code created by the Uruguayan poet Jorge Adoum and medical condition of Synesthesia, a condition where people see colors when they hear music, or see letters. Based on these codes, Berchem created his own alphabet of designated colors, which are presented through a series of drawings, photos, and paintings of texts, where the artist explores the concept of guilt, failure and the poetic.
