In Situ – fabienne leclerc, Romainville - Grand Paris
Oroma Elewa, Gary Hill, We Are The Painters
For this new edition of Art-o-rama, In situ – fabienne leclerc focuses its presentation around young and emerging creation, in dialogue with more established artists of the gallery, by bringing together the works of the american artist Gary Hill, the argentine Marina De Caro, both in conversation with the frenchs duo We Are The Painter and the newest recrue of the gallery, the nigerian artist Oroma Elewa whose first solo show took place in March 2023.
Plastic artist born in 1961, in Mar del Plata (Argentina), Marina De Caro lives and works in Buenos Aires (Argentina). Developing a multidisciplinary work integrating drawing, sculpture and performance, Marina De Caro experiments with the notions of space, body experience, intuition and emotion within a colorful universe.
Gary Hill (b. 1951, Santa Monica, CA) has worked with a broad range of media – including sculpture, sound, video, installation and performance – since the early 1970’s. His longtime work with intermedia continues to explore an array of issues ranging from the physicality of language, synesthesia and perceptual conundrums to ontological space and viewer interactivity.
Formed in 2005, We Are The Painters is a duo composed of Nicolas Beaumelle and Aurélien Porte. Since their training, they practice an unclassifiable painting. WATP works without knowing which of the two artists produces a gesture.
Oroma Elewa is a Nigerian visual and performance artist, writer and creative director. In her art, Elewa examines social constructs and their impact on identity, thought, expression and behavior.
