MATHIAS SCHMIED : Critical mass of silence

From 22 January to 15 march 2015

Solo exhibition of the dual Franco-swiss nationality artist, Mathias Schmied  In his exhibition at the Art Museum of Pully, Batman and Spiderman disappear in favor of broken color spots, detach the pages, leaving behind their universe. Covered with paint, posters of pin-ups only reveal a few pieces of flesh and words, finely cut, are reduced to a few lines. A game of hide and saw that gives a narrative ambiguity to works. The absence and silence are the heart of the practice of the artist: it is up to the viewer to try to fill them.

Hors les murs

On se tromperait de croire que les bois n’ont pas des yeux 

From 17 January to 04 April 2015 at LaHalle - Pont-en-Royans

This exhibition brings together three artists, Delphine Balley, Geraldine Kosiak and Aurélie Pétrel whose singular artistic practices are here echo around a common topic: hunting. 

Without partisan or controversial hint (but not candor), the exhibition traces rather reflective lines, questions the performances in the history of art, reveals a poetic encounter with the prey.

"On se tromperait de croire que les bois n'ont pas des yeux" : this is verse of Victor Hugo, extract from L'idylle de Floriane.

Aurélie Pétrel

Partition #mai2014

Exhibition 22May>02August2014

After « Polygone » in 2011 and « Lame (Fukushima) » in 2013 on DocksArtFair, Galerie Houg presents the second solo show of Aurélie Pétrel – « Partition # mai2014 ».
Aurélie Petrel transforms the very concept of photographic technique to establish rules for a double play and creates a complicity between the work and the world. The boundaries between image and context, memory and fantasy disappear, the work reveals as much as it conceals.

Maurizio Savini


10 April >11 May 2014

Galerie Houg presents Vrai Nord the second solo show of works by Italian artist Maurizio Savini.
Savini uses chewing gum for over 10 years; this unconventional material appeared in Europe at the end of the Second World War, became the basis of his artistic creation.First used in its finished form, its pink color makes it a fun pictorial element, and the smell actually forget the heaviness of the topicapproached. This time used in its purest form the white, Savini heats the gum, it sometimes incorporates pigment and handles like clay, eventually stretching the mold and apply its supports.

25 March>30 March 2014

The gesture seems to be always the same, more or less close and repeated depending on the desired black. The deaf light of the image through this application (in both senses) which materializes the breathing of the artist’s work in this process. Manigaud is emphasizing the image (far away from the hyperrealism where the artist hand may adjust to replicate the finest detail) to looking forward to the single most accurate representation possible to the original. It’s only to approach closer to his work to see how Manigaud impresses but does not draw the sheet.
What a subject ? Images origins ? Archives exhumed by the artist, oversized, they resume their right to say what they show, wildly topical.

Exhibition 27Feb.>30March2014

From the end of 90s, Patrice grabbed the web of the Web as a source of inspiration. In this respect, it is forerunner among international artists, while today this source of images is becoming commonplace in the extreme. First from webcam surveillance, those became decidedly urban and satellite, and, against all odds, closer to the intimacy of private, ordinary and everyday. Images volatile, intangible abruptly returned to the physical density of the classical medium, historically credited with lightness and spontaneity of watercolor, always used for its ability to fix the ephemeral.
