NOMADES :
LE MARAIS BIGGEST ART AND CULTURE FESTIVAL.

 

Bonjour Parismarais Readers,

This year's “Nomades” Festival created by Patrick Badard and Linda Bryman in charge of culture at Paris district 3 City Hall, is approaching, and this fun and original idea is an opportunity to make surprising and artistic cultural discoveries in the heart of the Marais. Parismarais.com, as usual paving the way and unearthing true gems, offers a pared- down selection of our favorite, not- to miss places. This selection is obviously not exhaustive and should be viewed as an appetizer to “Nomades”, which contains more than 350 fantastic places to enjoy.

Let's begin with a "terra incognita", a true artistic shock, with the discovery of Galerie Christian Berst, nestled in the tiny passage Gravilliers at number 5. The gallery introduces us to the essence of Art Brut. Both established artists such as Adolf Wolfli are to be found here as well as younger artists. On this occasion, the gallery will present the photographic work of the autistic artist Albert Moser. His cityscapes are presented for the first time and are a real revelation for lovers of Art Brut and photography. Long neglected by critics, considered the "Bermuda Triangle of Art" (according to Christian Berst), Art Brut has finally found its perfect Parisian ambassador in the form of this enthusiastic gallery. Their program projected for this autumn is equally enticing.

After this foray into out of the ordinary creations, let's go to the Galerie Michèle Chomette. The gallery is located upstairs at 24, rue Beaubourg, and presents the photographic work of the Catalan painter - muralist José Maria Sert (1874- 1945), introduced into the most exclusive circles between World War I and II. This artist is known for his large format murals in New York's Rockefeller Center and for having decorated the board room of the League of Nations in Geneva. Today relatively forgotten, this artist recaptures a renewed interest in his photographic studies. It is this paradox that the gallery highlights in its curation, which incidentally is echoed with the wonderful exhibition currently at the Petit Palais (March 8 to August 5 "Titian at work") reserved for him.

The gallery is also hosting a competition open to all on "The Art of Representing Lies." All entries must be received by June 16; five award-winners will be invited to present their pieces in the gallery from July 18 to July 25 2012.

Two steps away is Galerie Daniel Templon, open since 1972 in the neighborhood at 30 rue Beaubourg. This space represents confirmed and newer artists with strong personalities and outside the common media modes. Valerio Adami, a key figure in narrative figuration, is currently showing a double exhibit of both his pictorial and photographic work, with themes related to the fragility of life and health through art addressed in his paintings, which are characterized through flat colors outlined in black. The exhibition ends with the “Nomades Days”. A fantastic occasion not to be missed. Please note that the gallery will not be open on Sunday June 3.

Continuing on your way, you find the Glass House located at 4 passage Saint Avoye, which operates a dialogue between art and technology through different types of hybrid glass, changing physical and optical properties via a low electric current. The installation "Sound Cloud" by Kazuhiro Yamanaka uses this innovative technology, called Quantum Glass, to create a rather surprising result.

Our itinerary next takes you to the Swiss Cultural Center located at 38 rue des Francs-Bourgeois, which has a wide range of Swiss contemporary creations. To mark the “Nomades Trail”, select works of the Andreas Zust collection will be presented. You will discover photographic portraits of the Zurich scene from his Bekannte/Unbekannte series, as well as many rare books. The Andreas Zust collection is considered one of the richest in the world. The Swiss Cultural Center hosts for the first time in France a part of the collection of this genius dabbler. "As a memory maker, he fixed everything with a discerning eye and gave meaning to his life "without worrying about the boundaries between high culture, counter-culture and popular culture. To be enjoyed without moderation during the “Nomades Days”.

Taking rue Payenne to number 5, have a look at the “Chapel de l'Humanité”, the only remaining positivist temple in Europe. It was designed as a secular temple dedicated to the future of humanity, the Mecca of Auguste Comte’s philosophy. The motto on the facade of this building is: "Love as a principle and order as the basis; progress as the goal."

At 11 rue Payenne, the Swedish Institute opens its doors June 1st and 2nd with the International Festival of Performance Art INFR'ACTION Paris including “performances on water” by Zhu Ming and Bill Drummond.

Close by, the Galerie Lahumière at 17 rue du Parc Royal, supportingartists in the movement of constructed and geometric abstraction, presents the work of Gottfried Honegger from May 12 to July 7. This artist represented France at the 13th Sao Paulo Biennial with François Morellet and Bernar Venet. The artist’s collection was offered to the French State and remains visible at the Museum of Mouans-Sartoux. A fitting tribute to this still very active artist, despite his 94 years.

At 7 rue Debelleyme, the Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac presents two exhibits devoted to the recent paintings of Elya and Emilia Kabakov as well as the sculptures of Donald Baechler, second generation pop artist finding inspiration in the imaginary world of children and the mentally disabled, often making reference to Dubuffet.

The «Nomades Days» programming is so rich and abundant this year that the places could be connected. Begin the Trail by discovering the unique Parisian gallery dedicated to Art Brut (Christian Berst) and complete this walk with a visit to one of the most iconic contemporary art galleries (Thaddaeus Ropac), presenting in particular an artist influenced by Art Brut and his universe; it seemed to me like a nice loop and an opportunity to reflect upon the sources of art.
