Trisha Donnelly

AIR DE PARIS will present the third solo exhibition of TRISHA DONNELLY, as well as a selection of MAI 68posters.TRISHA DONNELLY's artworks resists simple characterisation; her works shape the space, are barely traces. Rejecting expression, character and density, they emphasise discretion, scantness, lessness. A new body of works will be presented: marble sculpture, videos, drawings,  photographs. “Donnelly's artistic practice dwells in the interstitial spaces between information that is provided and information that 'flows' and that, while expanding the emotional and cognitive impact of...

Something to think about

      Following the example of ultimately cutting-edge Japanese cuisine – more concerned with difference  and variation in savour and texture than with taste sensation – Shimabuku homes in closely on the  everyday objects, searching for differences between identical products, or what different objects have  in common. This poetic observation of nature becomes an opportunity for life lessons, for the challenging  of one’s criteria regarding taste and choice, for reconsideration of rushed judgements. Reminiscent of  Robert Filliou’s «bricolage» («…do something else…»), Shimabuku raises question... [more]

Following and following

      One thing after another: an exhibition, an art fair, a glass of good wine, an episode from an American TV series. But each item on the list conjures up what follows: the next exhibition (will it be as good, or better?), the next art fair (who'll be there this time?), the next glass of wine (the last?), and the next episode (bring on the one after!). Each of these follow-ups has its own inner logic: each new element either replaces the previous one (the TV series), adds to it (the wine) or cancels it out (the fair). But what if an exhibition accumulated all the characteristics of th... [more]

opening photos

On November 15 Artslant headed out to the 13th for the vernissages of the galleries on rue Louise Weiss. First stop was Air de Paris, showing the work of Petra Mrzyk and Jean-François Moriceau. The show consists of 365 works, for each day of the year 2009--a calendar.   I found my birthday (I believe a lot of the viewers were looking for the same!) [more]

The Quotidien Absurd

by Natalie Hegert
365 black, white and red drawings consist of the exhibition of Petra Mrzyk and Jean-François Moriceau at Air de Paris, one for each day of the year, created for a unique 2009 tear-off calendar.  Arranged in no particular order, the viewer confronts each image as a separate entity, but there is no doubt that through recurrent themes and elements, whether humorous, absurd or disturbing, the pictures play off each other, collaborate with each other.  Moriceau and Mrzyk's work is bound by certain limitations of format, the same three colors, the same size of frame, the month, date and day somehow...
