« WYSI NOT WYG » (What You See Is NOT What You Get)

Digital artists are deviators who insert a layer of indetermination between reality and its representation. The artists I selected for this online curatorship practice this alchemy and formulate some variations in the continuum of our lives, between birth, social life, war, play, religion, death and transfiguration.

« COSMOS OF MUTUAL EXCHANGES »

Throughout my journey as an author, journalist, curator and member of collectives, meeting artists has always been a chance for me to develop my knowledge and theory around speculative fields that go well beyond the fixed borders of academic reflection.

VARIATION MEDIA ART FAIR

Throughout the world, a few media art fairs are popping up here and there, while Variation continues to pursue its mission. Now in its third year, this singular Parisian salon and expo comes to the Cité Internationale des Arts. The importance of this venue becomes apparent when we consider the blank walls of its gallery situated in the Marais.

« THE AIR OF TAKASAKI »

The artistic statement of Mériol Lehmann has always been about themes related to his expatriate status. This brought a deep fascination about territory, especially towards the feedback loop between humans and the geographic space they live in.

« RISING CLASSICS »

The artworks in this collection represent various trends in media arts: installations, kinetic sculptures, interactive and light pieces, digital images… Each one, in its own field, represents the culmination of contemporary esthetics, without overplaying the technology required to realize it.

« ARTT » (Art To Tablet)

Contemporary art lovers cannot ignore new media art and its capacity for original collections and demonstrations. From video to Net art, interactive installations and animated GIFs, digital art is being exhibited on a new screen: the tablet. From Agam to Hockney, big names of the art world are using these nomadic screens as an organic and living canvas to share the adventure of their collector.

HÉMISPHÈRES

“Hemispheres” evokes as much the idea of metaphysical spaces where we can exist and dream as geographic and biological territories. North/south, left/right, emotional/rational, real/virtual — the notion of hemisphere calls to mind duality, binarity, conflict but also transition. It is this shifting between two realms that frames this selection of works, observing what is at stake from the point of view of perception and the senses, questioning landscapes and nature in the age of technologies and even shaping the contours of a new poetic imagination through scientific knowledge.

TEMPORARY COLLECTIONS

ARTJAWS TEMPORARY COLLECTIONS WANT TO OFFER AN HISTORICAL CONTEXTUALISATION OF NEW MEDIA ART THROUGH A DIALOGUE WITH OTHER CONTEMPORARY ARTISTIC MOUVEMENTS, SUCH AS ART BRUT OR POP ART.

TATOO ART


“A historical object of anthropological, ethnological and sociological studies, tattooing is currently the object of popular and media curiosity as well as an object of consumption for advertising and fashion that exploit and use its specific imagery to sell other messages. The Academic History of art from which we come from in Europe has banned popular art to earn a respectability only granted to what is commonly called “The Great Art”.
