The exhibition is organized by a group of six young French artists, that just move a couple of months ago to Berlin, to live here and work. The idea for this group show grew naturally and is based on human affinities between the artists. They all just met here in Berlin, they are young between 25 and 33 years but even if they are a young generation we all use old medium like painting, etching and drawing.
There is a gap today on the European scene, that the invitation postcard illustrates, between the very well known French painters like Manet and the lack of visibility of the young French artists, especially in painting. In this sense they trying to find in a distance from their historical heritage to be able to show contemporary work.
The contemporary imagery of the artists work comes from the surrounding, internet, magazines, films and videos.
The works will be presented in conjunction with works by the German photographer Irene Ip, in the not yet finished exhibition space - following the idea of Salon des Refusés - as a spontaneous show, which in this way would not have been possible in an official art institutions in France.
