Works on Paper and Some Objects

Franck Bragigand, mostly known for his remar- kable body of works constisting of ‘painting subjects’, proposes here a selection of drawings focused on a new manner of Painting and representing the world. He has built a graphic communication based on painted circles connecting colors, words and information. This cromatic code enables him to paint any time, any civilization, any history and any notion. The result is an astonishing series of colored and written circles, which create language in itself.

In one of her recent travels, Mariëlle Videler (Netherlands, 1970) undertook many hikes in the Andes and devoted her time to the study of indigenous cultures in Colombia. By doing research she wanted to connect two worlds: the world of city dwellers living in an extractive economy, detached from the sources of nature, and the world of the indigenous people, for whom nature is part of a spiritual world. Resulting from this experience is a total of 40 drawings recently made in Bogotá, Colombia.

Thierry Oussou (Benin, 1988), is an emerging artist, exhibiting at Lumen Travo gallery for the rst time. In 2014 he participated in residencies at Dokoutin, Brussels and in 2015 at Rijksakademie, Amsterdam. In his artistic practice he deals with questions about authenticity, history, heritage and visibility. He also reflects on the relationship between contemporary art and ethnographic objects in museums. On this special occasion he exhibits a series of drawings and masks that take inspiration from his African background.
