Pour une grammaire du hasard

For many years, painting has been equated with notions such as permanence or skill; furthermore, it is an art form that excels in adapting to accidentality, temporariness or instability. The present exhibition focuses on the production of pictorial work as such: the determinism of selected materials, coincidences and temporary compositions appear to establish themselves as principles of construction, thus challenging the authoritarian vision of the work of art. In painting, the processes of negotiation, decision-making and resignation, the fluctuation between control and release therefore suggest that intention is nothing more than an initial step towards the self-empowerment of the work of art in itself.
