From Saturday, June 17, 2017 to Saturday, July 15, 2017.
Jérôme Poggi is happy to dedicate a first solo show to Marion Verboom (born in 1983 in Nantes; works and lives in Paris), who is now represented by the gallery in collaboration with Pill Gallery in Istanbul (Turkey).
Animated by the concept of « Temporaldaten » developed by the German philosopher Edmund Husserl, Marion Verboom creates an ensemble of new sculptures from her Achronies series, a project initiated at her recent exhibition at the Museum of Sainte-Croix in Sables d’Olonne (FR), and about which curator Erik Verhagen especially wrote a text.
Resulting from a research carried out along several residences at the National Archaeological Museum of Madrid (Spain) and the Archaeological Museum of Istanbul (Turkey), these new sculptures in plaster or resin open a stratigraphic dialogue between different civilizations around the Mediterranean sea, generating their own temporality through hybrid elevations. Next to this composite work, Marion Verboom will show another set of sculptural and graphic works specially produced for this exhibition.
During the autumn, the Palais de Tokyo will inaugurate a 500 m2 new space dedicated to transmission of knowledge, for which Marion Verboom has been invited to create an immersive permanent installation. Marion Verboom has also been entrusted to create a new artwork for a safe house in Maine and Loire as part of the New Patrons initiative.
Studio visits can be arranged by appointment in the XXth arrondissement in the presence of the artist.
