Point of View on the Collection

What are the specific gestures that forge the creative process? How are they connected to the thought and discourse that underlie the practice?

The exhibition highlights, in particular, the notions of gesture, manipulation, taking position and action. The body is a dominant feature, whether through a performative approach, an exercise in self-representation , a visual device that it triggers or controls or a set of processes that reveal its action on the material or in the image even more tangibly.

Whatever the underlying paradigms, the works in this exhibition express a commitment by the artists towards the object under study, a direct connection with the material that focuses their attention.
