In Situ fabienne leclerc, Romainville - Grand Paris

For this new edition of Art-O-Rama, we wished to focus our presentation around two powerful and colorful universes of creation, intensely engaged in dialogue with both global and local cultures, by bringing together the works of the iranian trio composed by Ramin and Rokni Haerizadeh & Hesam Rahmanian, and the Argentine artist, Marina De Caro.

 

Our stand will features works in a variety of media, illustrating the varied, interactive and inclusive practices of the artists exposed. Video, works on paper, wall and hanging sculptures will all be on display, inviting the visitors to engage and interact with them, on a emotionnal and physical level for some pieces. Textile works by Marina De Caro, inspired by carpets/draps used during picnics picnics and specially created to interact with viewers, will be laid out on the floor, inviting visitors to lie down and experience a vision of everyday life, opening up a dialogue on bodily and social behavior and norms.

 

With a collaborative artistic practice that includes painting, drawing, video and immersive installations, Ramin Haerizadeh (b. 1975, Tehran), Rokni Haerizadeh (b. 1978, Tehran) and Hesam Rahmanian (b. 1980, Knoxville) propose a new definition of the collective in a constant state of movement and mutation, inviting friends and collaborators includ-ing carpenters, technicians, and thinkers to participate in their work. The artists act as operants within a collective organism, confronting issues such as power, otherness, dis-placement and destruction. Offering a meditation on the tension between high and low culture though their use of both traditionally artistic and banal materials, the artists ask us to re-examine forms, figures and issues absent from our field of vision. They work with a total freedom of rhetorical and visual strategies, em-ploying distortion, subversion, inversion and obscuration at will in order to question habitual judgments. The appropriation of images by the artists doesn’t attempt to transmit a moral message but rather to communicate a new meaning to their public with their interventions.

 

Plastic artist born in 1961, in Mar del Plata (Argentina), Marina De Caro lives and works in Buenos Aires (Argentina). She is one of the most influential Latin American artist of her generation.

 

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. Her installations unfold within a poetic and sensitive space, often taking the form of flexible and mobile sculptures. She constantly reinvents space, she amplifies it through unknown gestures, freeing it from petrified geometries. She pushes back the limits of the expected to give what vibrates, invigorates, what surprises the norm, habits, the conventional, existence, what disconcerts.
