Nothing Belongs to Us: Offer

From Monday, March 27, 2017 to Saturday, May 6, 2017.

Nothing Belongs to Us: Offer begins with a feeling. A tugging between the awareness of a reality asking to be clarified, and the wish that a work would always stay partly in the shadows. In the shadows half lit bodies escape meaning and draw us in. They call out to be understood, but at the same time their approach is uncertain and promises no predetermined end. Along this path there is the...
Caroline Mesquita, « The Ballad »

From Monday, January 23, 2017 to Saturday, March 11, 2017.

Caroline Mesquita’s sculptural practice intertwines the materiality of her altered, oxidized, and painted copper and brass sheets with theatrical playfulness. Her metallurgic experiments result in life-size figures, interacting with each other in a mise en scène crafted from the sculpted sheets and forming an environment of coated steel. For the exhibition The Ballad, presented at Fondation...

From Monday, May 23, 2016 to Saturday, July 2, 2016.

A series of gesturesSophie Bueno-Boutellier is a painter and sculptor. Her installations combine ready-made objects with elements made from humble materials readily available in DIY shops.

The Fondation d’entreprise Ricard is pleased to present the exhibition of Dove Allouche.Curated by Kate Macfarlane.Dove Allouche’s new body of work is informed by his interest in parietal art, an extension of his fascination with earth’s primordial elements.  Using fugitive materials and processes associated with both drawing and photography, Allouche produces artworks that capture the...
Fertile Lands

From Monday, January 25, 2016 to Wednesday, March 9, 2016.

Fertile Lands calls for favorable grounds, whose contact could help the art of today find the means to regenerate itself. The works in the exhibition at the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard summon the raw forces of nature. They capture the sun's energy that "touches" Cyprien Gaillard's fossil-objects (What it Does to Your City), or the solarized paper held out in Sophie Bonnet-Pourpet’s...

Sarah Tritz «Diabolo chews gum in the rain and thinks about sex»

From Tuesday, November 24, 2015 to Saturday, January 9, 2016.

The characters that Sarah Tritz has summoned to the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard – such as the melancholic Diabolo, after whom the exhibition is named, and the delightful Sluggo, both of whom are taken directly from an American comic from the 1930s, from where the artist also borrowed the delicate sky-blue and water-green colours that decorate the walls of the space – bring in...
The order of fireflies

From Tuesday, September 15, 2015 to Saturday, October 31, 2015.

The 2015 Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard Prize opens up areas of research which, at first sight, seem well-removed from one another, but turn out to be informed by unusual systems of liaisons. Thousands of fireflies emit bioluminescent light at regular intervals. Thy flash in unison at the same rhythm as the chirping of hundreds of crickets and metronomes. This experiment in synchronicity...
Life is a Bed of Roses (a novel)

From Wednesday, May 27, 2015 to Saturday, July 4, 2015.

A project devised by Stéphanie Moisdon, with the participation of the Master’s course students and teachers. In the form of a Bildingsroman (“education novel”) about imagination, or about imagination of education, the exhibition is the venue for a theatre and a choir,  a set, and appearances of forms, objects and characters. The evolving path of this “education novel” has been...
The lynx knows no boundaries

From Tuesday, March 24, 2015 to Saturday, May 9, 2015.

Rosi Braidotti opens her book The Posthuman with this observation: “None of us can say, with any degree of certainty, that we have always been humans, or that that is all we are.”1 Braidotti re-appraises a Eurocentric and male humanism, currently out-of-date, and suggests talking in terms of territories and de-territorializations, and about desire as a construction rather than...
Marcelline Delbecq, «Silence Trompeur»

From Thursday, January 22, 2015 to Saturday, March 7, 2015.

For the past ten years, Marcelline Delbecq’s praxis has been slowly shifting from taking photos to taking notes. In her work, the issue of the image is incarnated in an essentially narrative form, a writing imbued with movements and freeze frames, past and present, fiction and reality. For the show Silence trompeur/Deceptive Silence, the artist thwarts...

Emmanuelle Lainé, «Le plaisir dans la confusion des frontières»

From Tuesday, November 25, 2014 to Saturday, January 10, 2015.

The solo exhibition of Emmanuelle Lainé brings the artist back to Paris - a place very familiar to her.

The project, developed on location over a period of three weeks, and involving a multi-talented team, will turn the exhibition space into...
L'époque, les humeurs, les valeurs, l'attention

From Wednesday, September 10, 2014 to Friday, October 31, 2014.

" A press release usually greets the viewer with the wrong hand. By immediately setting the exhibition in an artificial landscape of references, concepts and analysis, it awkwardly takes its distance from it. Most of the time it euphemizes the conditions of the exhibition’s making and neutralizes the discussions and questions which sparked during its conception, in order to offer an image...
humainnonhumain

From Thursday, June 12, 2014 to Saturday, July 12, 2014.

"The "non human" instantly conjures up anything and everything that seems to contradict or destroy the idea of human, it brings forth images of robots, bionic prostheses, extra-terrestrials, every manner of chimaera, but also monsters that are too human, which humanity seems to produce so naturally. In anthropology, before being incarnated in particular...
Neïl Beloufa, «En torrent et second jour»

From Tuesday, April 1, 2014 to Saturday, May 24, 2014.

"Neïl Beloufa’s video works do not so much deconstruct filmic conventions, as they un-build them, tear apart and reassemble the cinematic apparatus into new continuities. His characters inhabit precarious stages, meant to obstruct or facilitate the movements of the camera, rather than accommodate stories of becoming. Tracking shots, dialogues, half-gestures, segmented or cloned...
SUPERNATUREL

The object is evidentThe value is addedThe definition is approximate I know things thanks to my PC’s optical mouse, by way of my web browser, then my 3.0 search engine.

From Tuesday, February 11, 2014 to Saturday, March 15, 2014.

“There was the wall, then the canvas, moving beyond the canvas, and, in so doing, returning to the wall, the canvas painted the same color as the wall on which it hangs… There is a desire these days to explore the contemporary practices of the “off-canvas,” understood both as off the frame (that is, something not openly shown but whose presence can be...

Renaud Auguste-Dormeuil, "Il serait temps"

From Tuesday, December 17, 2013 to Saturday, January 25, 2014.

To Renaud Auguste-Dormeuil, the real is but a thin film veiling an infinitely richer world than the one we look at every day. To mention just one example, visiting a museum in his company is quite an experience. With Auguste-Dormeuil, the elements given to see—the works—grow richer when the structures protecting them are considered. Our field of vision still encompasses the works being...
Natacha Lesueur, «Outside a Nut»*

From Wednesday, November 13, 2013 to Saturday, December 7, 2013.

Carmen Miranda was a seductive surface. In Hollywood, she was the embodiment of exoticism and Latin sensuality. In Brazil, though Portuguese by birth, she personified the concept of Brasilianness, that is, she had become the symbol of the country national identity promoted by Getulio Vargas. Pale-skinned, Miranda took from Bahia women, who sold the fruit they carried on their head; she...
