Marion Charlet’s art is driven by an imaginary that crosses reality in powerful compositions, whose primary function is to assert an aesthetic where colour is both the pretext and the text. Working from photographs that she takes herself and then modifies on her computer, the artist firstly created a world of original landscapes and interiors, most often architectural, surroundedby profuse vegetation, and devoid of all human presence.

Colour is the driving factor in how Charlet constructs each of her paintings and watercolours, bringing the motif to the fullness of its form. The skillful combination of intensity, transparency and opacity give the painted image its depth, its rhythm, its breath, the artist playing sometimes with empty space, sometimes with full… here an intrusion, while there a screen.

Touching an aesthetic of the disappearance, Léa Belooussovitch’s works question our attitude towards violence, graphic violence in particular related to our society highlighting the vulnerability of a peculiar moment and witnessing the artist’s humanity. The drawing resumes the clear, brightly-colored image sourced from the press, capturing on the field people in distress without any detour. The manual transcription allows the visual information coming from the photographic medium to become more tolerable.

The image appears as evanescent as a ghost, like the imprint of his source in our memories. Nevertheless its power is still there, in this intimate transcription of a tale of such brutality that makes the eye look away. Despite being physically close to the work, the viewer is yet kept far from the harsh reality: it is precisely this gap between the signified and and the signifier, that has been emphasized here.

Dédale-screen 2022 justin-weiler PARIS-B Paris-Beijing
Dédale - Screen, 2022, encre sur verre, 60 x 40 cm


Justin Weiler’s work finds its place within the tension of the borderline between interior and exterior space, between contemplation and domestication, between utopia and dystopia. The surfaces weave a motif that becomes a pattern. Awnings, greenhouses, screens, iron store shutters, plants and bouquets of flowers obey a stratified frontality, like metaphors rendered in the layers of ink swept repetitively across the surface of the piece.

When the gesture becomes persistent and obstinate, or passes meticulously or nervously over the preceding layer, he enhances it while simultaneously removing a thin deposit. More melancholic than moralizing, more poetic than political, Weiler’s monochromatic work suspends the passing of time. Beyond the grid is the assertion of a depth that opens space and renders visible that which was hidden.
