FOREST ART PROJECT

L’Arbre dans l'art contemporain

 

Musée de l’eau - Pont-en-Royans  02.07.2022 - 30.10.2022

Commissariat : Paul Ardenne

 

En 20 ans, le Musée de l’eau a accueilli un très grand nombre d’expositions sur le thème de l’eau. Le projet artistique Forest Art Project, soutient un angle différent où la nécessité de l’eau est sous-jacente, c’est pourquoi elle a suscité tout l’intérêt de Jean- Christophe Berrux, qui a découvert le collectif d’artistes lors de sa première exposition à Agen, en janvier 2022. En plus du Musée de l’eau, deux entités se sont solidarisées autour de l’exposition Forest Art Project le Couvent des Carmes et le Grand Séchoir à Vinay. Afin d’animer ces grands espaces, nous avons enrichi la proposition initiale d’une vingtaine d’artistes supplémentaires, soit 36 artistes internationaux et plus de 100 œuvres utilisant des médiums très variés, graphiques et picturaux, sculptures, installations XXL, et contemporains comme la vidéo. L’objet naturel de l’arbre mobilise énormément le champ de l’art contemporain. Comme l’eau, l’arbre-fétiche inspire les artistes qui en font leur totem. Tout d’abord, parce qu’il est une création magnifique, ensuite parce que sa ductilité symbolique sert des expressions tous azimuts, utilisées dans toutes les cultures et les mythologies. À travers la notion de croissance de l’arbre, on évoque l’arborescence, la construction des systèmes et l’évolution. À travers la notion de racines, on interroge les origines.

DIGITAL LIFE YEREVAN

 

National Academic Theater Gabriel Sundukyan - Yerevan

26.11. 2021 - 12.12.2021

 

Rodolphe Barsikian continues his “DIGITAL LIFE” with this new exhibition imagined as a 100% immersive journey. The artist is taking a new step in the presentation of his work, offering the public a singular dive into his hybrid work with an unprecedented artistic performance combining tradition and modernity.

 

By returning to the sources of an identity whose influences punctuate his work, this presentation in Yerevan is symbolically a strong stage in the international journey he is embarking on.

 

Under the aegis of the French Embassy in Yerevan, the “DIGITAL LIFE” exhibition is relayed by the French Institute as part of the 5th edition of its November Digital 2021 event. During the exhibition, Rodolphe Barsikian will make part of his work accessible in the form of NFT, a choice allowing him to share it with a wider community, integrating new collectors and opening it up to new ways of collecting works of art.

DIGITAL LIFE PARIS

 

Galerie Froissart - Paris - 18.03. 2021 - 22.05.2021
Curator : Paul Ardenne


Vahan studio presents Rodolphe Barsikian's latest compositions. These compositions generate the strong image of a life in motion whose drawings are the heartbeat and the seismograph. Presented in large format or in 3D modules, they multiply lines, geometric shapes, impulses and contractions.

This former student of the Institut Supérieur des Arts Appliqués (LISAA) with a strong Armenian identity, is passionate about drawing, invents shapes, trajectories, digital embroidery.

It is a life regulated by a technopoetic creation, recording each instinctual moment, each vibration, each sensation, that Rodolphe Barsikian tries to retrace here. The artist thus offers a new look at the creation of the 21st century.

HYBRIDE4

Ancienne Banque de France - Lens - 26.06.2021 - 29.08.2021
Curator : Paul Ardenne


At the invitation of the Cou2Com association and on the occasion of its tenth anniversary, the Hybrid Contemporary Art Biennial brought together for the first time in Lens 43 international artists, crossing approaches to contemporary creation with the theme "open" .

Under the curatorship of Paul Ardenne, this 4th edition, “OUVRIR”, is intentionally non-directive, anti-authoritarian. It is inspired by the reality of current art, beyond its institutional or critical formatting. This reality is diversity, a multitude of expressions and points of view commensurate with the contemporary individual who is not resigned, resistant to normalization and less and less aligned. A lavish situation of works frequently resorting to all-out hybridization, from practice to the vocabulary of forms and utterances.

Guest artists : Leïla Alaoui, Rodolphe Barsikian, Corine Borgnet, Tia-Cali Borlase, Sylvie Castets, Claude Cattelain, Olivier Coisne, Guillaume de Sardes, Julien Discrit, Carole Douay, Bruno Dupire, Isabelle Dussart, Slimen El Kamel, mounir fatmi, Matthieu Faury, Véronique Fournier, Bertrand Gadenne, Aurélie Gravas, Agnès Guillaume, Abdelatif Habib, Ali Kazma, Rachel Labastie, Luc Lapraye, Gauthier Leroy, Clément Lesaffre, Thomas Lévy-Lasne...

The French Art Dealeuses honors the artists Rodolphe Barsikian and Sacha Haillote with the exhibition titled “FLAGRANT DELIRE” (blatant delirium) at L’Alternatif Paris la Defense.
