CAP­TU­RED LIGHT

L'officiel Art - - Summer Guide -

“Evi Kel­ler, Ma­tière-Lu­mière”, 31 May - 18 Ju­ly, Ga­le­rie Jaeger Bu­cher, 5 & 7, rue de Saintonge, Pa­ris 3, T +33(0)1 42 72 60 42, ga­le­rie­jae­ger­bu­cher.com

2015 coin­cides with both the 90th an­ni­ver­sa­ry of Ga­le­rie Jaeger Bu­cher and the In­ter­na­tio­nal Year of Light: a great oc­ca­sion for this his­to­ri­cal gal­le­ry (Ma­rais Rive droite) to spot­light an ar­tist for the first time. Evi Kel­ler (born in 1968 in Ger­ma­ny, ba­sed in Pa­ris) tra­ded her ini­tial ac­ti­vi­ty as a pho­to­gra­pher and gra­phic de­si­gner for an agen­cy to de­ve­lop her own work in vi­sual art es­pe­cial­ly with dan­cers and mu­si­cians. Concei­ved as an ini­tia­to­ry jour­ney “Ma­tière-Lu­mière” crys­tal­lises va­rious ar­tis­tic ap­proaches (photography, pain­ting, sculp­ture, au­dio-vi­sual crea­tion) elu­ci­da­ting, among other things, their fu­sion and their re­la­tion­ship with light. Mul­tiple and chan­ging works, mu­si­cal scores in­ter­pre­ted in light, like the veils floa­ting wi­thout frames, li­be­ra­ting them­selves from the space and their en­vi­ron­ment of crea­tion. Trans­mu­ted in­to hea­ling veils, dres­sings co­ve­ring wounds and pro­tec­ting abs­tract forms, they are mys­te­ries of a ma­gi­cal, li­ving mat­ter that va­ries and re­fines it­self in­to chan­ging mi­ne­ral ve­ge­tal, ani­mal and hu­man forms, gi­ving birth to ex­plo­sive, vol­ca­nic land­scapes from a far-off and mys­te­rious world. A se­cond ins­tal­la­tion will be on dis­play at the gal­le­ry of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Pa­ris, cu­ra­ted by Al­fred Pac­que­ment, (28-31 May), on the oc­ca­sion of the Choices Col­lec­tors Week-End.
