Our thematic exhibition program in the first half of 2024 – Friends of Friends of Friends of… – addresses friendship in the context of resistance and resilience. The exhibition Materialities by the artist group AMV (Art / Mobilité / Visibilité) is also part of the visualization of diverse strategies of artists to create resilient structures and networks. AMV focuses on artists and promotes their search for greater autonomy in terms of creation and dissemination. In Materialities, the replacement and dissolution of plastic work is addressed in the classical sense and works that follow a new, contemporary (plastic) approach are brought together.

Participating artists:
Julien Boily / Cindy Dumais / Amélie Laurence Fortin / Vincent Hinse / Mathieu Valade

Artist ( Description ): 

Using 3D computer graphics, Julien Boily creates still lifes from existing forms, creating a dialogue between plastic language, painting and 3D computer graphics. The surface of his painted objects reflects the world around us. By making references to the history of painting, to the world of entertainment and to the world of digital technologies, he tries to unite and reconcile the past, present and future.

Cindy Dumais deals with the translation of language into matter, the questioning of identities and reference systems, and the accompanying bodily experience, which is a profoundly human one. Her collected quotations are questioning artistic production in a dialogical form. Her work often reflects the change in our relationship with materiality, raising questions about the relational changes we are experiencing in a world where digital technology is increasingly gaining the upper hand.

Amélie Laurence Fortin’s installations, sculptures and sound works create futuristic narratives in which objects testify to past and future actions. Her recent projects question current technological upheavals with a radical, monumental and performative approach. Feminist, fictional narratives and the ambiguity between the technical and the magical evoke the emergence of the random.

Vincent Hinse’s artistic research combines different media with the aim of creating sensitive experiences related to accidents or dysfunction. His works are created in experimental processes that search for the threshold, the in-between or the turning point at which a representation is transformed into a new one. He works with installation, video, sculpture and photography.

In Mathieu Valade’s artistic work, he explores the mechanics of images and our habits of perception by constructing different universes that may seem incompatible at first. His conceptual installations often develop an unexpected poetry that pushes the original concept into the background. In his works, which consist mostly of installation, he opens up new avenues of questioning and discourse with the history of art.
