ECHOES FROM THE BORDERLINE by Stephan Zimmerli

Exhibition from 4 to 30 October 2018

Stephan Zimmerli

Come discover French artist and musician Stephan Zimmerli's exhibition of analog photographs and sketchbooks, ECHOES FROM THE BORDERLINE, from 4 to 30 October!

Stephan Zimmerli (a.k.a. Zim Moriarty) is a visual artist, architect, theatre set designer and musician who has been on the road for ten years with his band Moriarty. For the past twenty years, he has developed a trans-diciplinary practice uniting the fields of image, sound, stage and space design into a singular structure: an art of memory, place and atmosphere, or "mnemotopy", based on the everyday, constant practice of hand-drawing.

As the double-bass and guitar player of the folk-rock band Moriarty, Zim has performed over 800 concerts with the band, along their ten-year tour across the world... documenting this musical voyage through analog photographs and sketchbooks.

Acting as a visual counterpart to Moriarty's live album "Echoes From The Borderline", a large-format book - containing over 150 of these original photographs, drawings and artwork - has been published through the band's independent label, Air Rytmo.

VÉNUS MAGIQUE by Bárbara Malagoli

06/09/2018 to 30/09/2018

Bárbara Malagoli

Bárbara Malagoli is a Brazilian-Italian graphic artist focusing on illustration and design, living between São Paulo and London. She studied graphic design and worked as a creative designer in studios and book publishers in Sao Paulo. In 2015, the artist decided to focus on her passion for illustration and has since been working freelance developing projects for a myriad of clients.

Vénus Magique was born of a desire to explore and understand the fluidity and limits of her art as a female artist. The spontaneity and freedom that ink and paper provide are the source of an emotional, physical and spiritual journey through different states of being.

In her drawings, the artist uses both figurative and abstract elements to create compositions of free and strong women. Inspiring, curvy, fierce and unbreakable, each woman represented in her drawings is a statement of a presence in the world and a contemporary vision of ancient goddesses from matriarchal societies.

GONE FISHING by Raphaël Neal

02/08/2018 to 02/09/2018
Raphaël Neal

 French film director and photographer Raphaël Neal was born in 1980. His work has been exhibited in France and internationally since 2005. In 2015 he co-wrote with French award-winning writer Alice Zeniter his first feature film, 'Fever'. He often works with musicians, such as My Brightest Diamond and The Divine Comedy to direct their video clips and shoot their promotion contents. He also works as an actor with film directors like Claude Chabrol, Bertrand Bonello or Claire Denis and is now preparing 'Nuée ardente', a full-length road-movie taking place in Italy.

After 19 years living in Paris, Raphaël Neal escaped the city to work on the scenario of his feature film. Passionate about The Aeolian Islands, a volcanic archipelago in the Tyrrhenian Sea north of Sicily since he saw Stromboli by Rosselini and L’Avventura by Antonioni, he decided to explore Sicilia and write a road-movie on Italian volcanoes. 

The photo series 'Gone Fishing' has been shot in Ginostra, a village very difficult to access to: hills, no roads, no cars, no streetlights. Only 30 inhabitants and three donkeys. A decor Raphaël immediately fell in love with! He stayed five weeks alone in a house hung on the top of the highest hill, close to the crater of the volcano that was erupting every ten minutes. 

The series represents the atmosphere and the perfumes of that place both rough and welcoming, a setting chosen by Raphaël to create the character for his movie 'Sick of Modern Times'. Usually shooting portraits and self-portraits - often in studios where everything is under control - Raphaël shares with 'Gone Fishing' his curiosity for landscapes, flowers and animals. As if he was trying to protect this fantasized island, he blew on the camera lens in order to blur the contours of his subjects, and he under-exposed his images to reduce the intense and spectacular light bathing the Tyrrhenian Sea.

MUSES by Beatrice Poggio

05/07/2018 to 29/07/2018

Italian artist Beatrice Poggio was born in Genoa, Italy, in 1969. She studied at the Liceo Artistico Statale Paul Klee and at the Scuola Professionale di Fotografia in Florence. After her studies, she worked as a fashion photographer in Florence, Milan and Paris. In 1997, she returned to her first passion, painting, and started her career as a painter and art teacher. Beatrice uses various techniques such as printmaking, ink, collage and paint, using different surfaces such as wood, canvas or furniture.

'Muses' is a project prepared through the years. It started with a book Beatrice had kept and damaged while moving houses. The idea grew to work with its images through the techniques of collage, drawing and embroidery.

In this series, Beatrice recreates the story of French women from the Belle Epoque, ornamenting the black and white nude photographs from anonymous authors. Alternating in between abstract tribal patterns and more figurative symbols, she builds a dreamlike world to glorify and celebrate the power of these fearless women. 'Muses' is an ode to joy and freedom!
