B&C Reports

  • Sarah Sze’s ecosystems model the complexity of reality

    In a kaleidoscope of physical and digital objects and images, lights and sounds, Sarah Sze creates immersive ecosystems that challenge our senses as well as their environment. Two of her hypnotic experiences can be seen at La Guardia Airport in New York and De Nuit en Jour at the Fondation Cartier in Paris until the end of May, 2021. Article by Marc Pottier...

  • The mirror of Hubert Duprat’s Trichoptera, between enigma and encyclopedic wonder

    Nothing seems further from the colorful exuberance of Janaina Tschäpe than Claude Monet's soothed Water Lilies. However, the installation of her video 'Blood, sea' adapted to the walls of the Musée de l'Orangerie multiplies the expressive correspondences between these two immersive and organic spaces until February 15, 2021.

  • Janaina Tschäpe’s baroque turbulence similar to Monet’s Water Lilies

    Nothing seems further from the colorful exuberance of Janaina Tschäpe than Claude Monet's soothed Water Lilies.

  • A sound sculpture by Bill Fontana wants to bring back Notre Dame de Paris to life

    Inspired by a rehabilitation of Notre-Dame de Paris that still remains to be imagined, many artistic proposals have arisen. The installation by the American sound sculptor Bill Fontana remains the most stunning: "Silent Echoes - Notre Dame" or the exploration of the silence of the 10 surviving bells. Article by Marc Pottier...

  • OLIVER BEER PRESENTS ‘OMA’ AT THADDAEUS ROPPAC

    Oliver Beer’s new exhibition Oma presents a new sound installation alongside sculptural wall works that are steeped in musical inheritance and exchange. Following the artist’s solo exhibition Vessel Orchestra at the Met Breuer, New York in 2019, this exhibition transforms the Ely Gallery into a space where the sacred and domestic seem to intermingle....

  • THE SACRED AND INSPIRED THREADS OF ALICE ANDERSON

    Alice Anderson's work is essentially performative. Her ritualistic choreographies aspire to a reappropriation of our relationship with the ‘data management’ governed world. Her ‘Spiritual Machines’ generate pastel drawings, wire motifs and sculptures in steel or copper. The Franco-British artist is one of four finalists of the Marcel Duchamp Prize 2020 exhibited at the Centre Pompidou from October 19th. Article by Marc Pottier...

  • ‘SLUMP’ BY PAUL COCKSEDGE – AN ILLUSION OF TENSION

    Hosted at the Carpenter’s Workshop Gallery, British designer and artist Paul Cocksedge’s newest series of work is a mind-bending challenge to the limits of the material world, drawing inspiration from the industrial as well as the natural. Article by Aubrey Chatriot ...

  • Anish Kapoor at Houghton Hall in Norfolk

    One of the most influential sculptors working today, Anish Kapoor eliminates the distinction between two and three dimensions, between perception and experience, increasing the relationship between man and his environment. Article by Ryme Charoub...

  • WEBINAR WITH CURATOR NADJA ROMAIN LIVE FROM FONDATION ADRIANO BERENGO IN MURANO VENICE

    Featuring visionaries from Europe, the United States, Latin America, Iran, and South Korea in an ambitious line-up, UNBREAKABLE: WOMEN IN GLASS explores the endless creative possibilities of glass and the infinite variety of work produced by female artists who continue to be sidelined in the art world. By Alexandra Unger, 22nd September 2020...

  • Anaïs Lelièvre’s unlimited drawing rises from Poush, the first skyscraper filled with artists’ studios

    Anaïs Lelièvre transforms the ancient technique of drawing into "something else", not always easy to describe: drawn sculptures, explosions of black and white collages, fragments of mineral or vegetable matter? Article by Marc Pottier, 11th August 2020...

  • VISUAL ARTIST AND FILMMAKER, CLEMENT COGITORE MERGES ANIMATED AND STATIC IMAGES

    Whether in the form of a documentary or at the opera, he claims a personal modus operandi: "To establish very precise rules and leave uncontrollable elements in the middle, chancing that it will produce meaning and form." Article by Marc Pottier, 3rd August 2020....

  • THE ‘MORE IS LESS’ OF FRANCK SCURTI – POET OF THE DEBRIS

    Like any artist of his generation, Franck Scurti knows how to handle allusion. “More is less”, the title chosen for his exhibition at Palais de Tokyo in 2019, condenses its aesthetic approach very well. This artist, born in 1965, likes to work economically. This is why this poet of debris works a lot with objects found in the street. Article by Marc Pottier, 31st July 2020...

  • Marcos Amaro, the polymath of the Brazilian art world

    Polymath, ubiquitous, a juggler... we could have fun for a long time trying to catalog the unclassifiable, Marcos Amaro is an artist, collector, businessman in the field of aviation (no doubt why he knows so well how to make acrobatic loops in life?), gallery owner (Brazil and Switzerland) and, what particularly interests us today, the President and founder of FAMA Museum e Campo.

  • The colorful krafts of Maxwell Alexandre, inclusive herald of black Brazilian emancipation

    From the Rocinha, favela of Rio to the picture walls of the prestigious London gallery David Zwirner (until January 30, 2021), at 30 years old Maxwell Alexandre knows a dazzling success, which does not divert him from an aesthetic vocation committed to the black Brazilian minorities. Article by Marc Pottier...

  • The future of the country of the future? Brazil

    Brazil, the fifth largest country in the world with the sixth largest community in the world, cradle of cultures coming from Africa, Europe but also with Japanese and Lebanese communities larger than in their own countries, is therefore a country very difficult to summarize in its complexity. The art world has never ceased to claim its cultural exception. Article by Marc Pottier...

  • Like a shaman, Rodrigo Braga immerses us in nature’s workshop

    Rodrigo Braga never ceases to blur the lines between humanity and landscape. His work is temporary; he embraces Nature and does not walk around in it. He tries to merge with it, he doesn't build anything with it. He barely touches it, preferring to leave it intact, whilst absorbing its mysteries. Article by Marc Pottier...

  • THE INFINITY OF INTERCONNECTED THREADS OF JANAINA MELLO LANDINI

    Her compositions contort themselves to invent scholar dialogues with the architecture of the places where she is invited. Janaina Mello Landini has been exploring since ten years the infinite possibilities of thread and rope, without treatment or colouring, whose ramifications she multiplies - from sculptures to immersive installations - to complex works, entirely made by hand. Article by Marc Pottier, 20th July 2020...
