In Situ – fabienne leclerc, Romainville, Grand Paris
Daniele Genadry, Vivien Roubaud and We Are The Painters
For the past twenty years, In Situ – fabienne leclerc has strived to present a plural vision of contemporary art, developing a roster that spans four continents, promoting young and emerging artists in France and internationally while supporting its established artists over the long term and remaining actively engaged in dialogue with both global and local cultures.
The Art-o-rama’s presentation focuses on young and emerging creation by bringing together the works of Daniele Genadry (Lebanon), Vivien Roubaud (France) and We Are The Painters (France), three artistic practices that engage with each other while highlighting their artistic mediums and practices.
Daniele Genadry, based between Lebanon and USA, works with various media to examine how distance, light and movement affect visual experiences. Her practice is focused around the relationship of painting and photography, and through it she considers the potential of an image to generate its own temporality (light), and how a mediated field of vision can sensitize our perception.
Vivien Roubaud aims to extract unusable qualities or properties hidden in the objects that surround us in our daily life. The active cohabitations that he orchestrates often clash, adopting precarious and unstable equilibriums. Bypassing functionalities and disorganising savoir-faire are goals that require him to adopt a distanced view in terms of what we know, or think we know, without ever falling into fascination, instead aiming to raise questions and incite curiosity.
Formed in 2005, We Are The Painters is an artist’s duo composed by Nicolas Beaumelle and Aurélien Porte. Since their studies, they practice an unclassifiable form of painting. WATP works without knowing which of the two artists will make a move or brushstroke. Their practice consists of a constant back and forth between their four hands, most often based on obsessive figures. Their painting overflows beyond the frame and the flat surface to reach the materiality of the world itself.
