Philippe Decrauzat
NYSTAGMUS

Exhibition: september 23-novemeber 20

Like the spectator of a 3D cinema, Philippe Decrauzat’s work slides with mastery from one dimension to another. With wallpaintings and floorpaintings, shaped canvases, installations and light displays, we sway between scientific rigour and the vibrant effect of the red-blue spectacles. Whilst encompassing the legacy of abstraction as in Contructivism and Suprematism, in Op Art and its games of illusion as well as in Minimalism, his work shows a much wider interest for the origins of abstraction.

Mélanie Matranga’s artistic approach is crossed by stories that infiltrate a production of objects, installations, films, and even pieces of furniture and reconstructions of interiors that are loaded with signifying signs, texts and images: drawings, photographs, prints, projections. These combined elements propose “situations” that interrogate intimacy and seem to be filled with sensations and residual feelings, receptacles where real life experience and imagination, the document and the scenario meet.

Mélanie Matranga analyses issues related to identity, relations linked to love, to the other and to community. In a society where everyone seems to live in his or her emotionally, psychologically and socially isolated world, and where exchange seems deferred by the absorbing digital world, social networks, by the merging of new fears and injunctions to being “one’s self”, intensifying even more egocentricity, amplifying the loss of solidarity and accentuating solitude. Matranga’s “rooms” offer a calm atmosphere, favourable to listening, empathy and thinking.

These “places” question a world where individualism and different community groups seem to juxtapose more and more and cut individuals off from one another. These phenomena of non-communication are particularly and subtly showcased in the last two videos of Mélanie Matranga, Jour&Nuit (2015) and You (2016), where figures – often teenagers – meet and try to communicate verbally, emotionally, sensually or sexually without success. In these short stories, the actors seem to float, stuck in their minds or their personal concerns, they have trouble communicating, but without really minding. They meet, miss each other, meet up again, coincidently, led by a very open scenario, leaving time and space to be free to experiment and live.

Mélanie Matranga remains in a simple, poor and accessible aesthetic. She combines furniture and elements of basic decor – beds, mattresses, cushions, armchairs, lamps, wall coverings -, that she works in natural materials – wood, cotton, rope – and manipulates in a DIY manner or rearranges, far from design, she favours the hand-made. Objects calling for comfort or sometimes for an ironic discomfort, but always remaining soft, bright, propose to the audience a form of relaxation and availability. As said by Matranga herself: “What interests me, is how to place myself physically in a place, but also how to place myself in life in regard to others, how to define one’s self in relation to others”.

For the CEC and the presentation of her two films, Jour&Nuit and You, Mélanie Matranga has planned to set up a cabin consisting of large white sheet panels, separating the projection from the rest of the exhibition space and from light, thus offering a protected space conducive to viewing these intimate works, and inviting us simultaneously to introspection and to our relationship to alterity.

Mélanie Matranga is a young french artist born in 1985 in Marseille. She lives and works in Paris and has participated in several collective exhibitions between 2013 and 2017 at the Dortmunder Kunstverein, Dortmund, Cneai, Paris, Atelier de Rennes, Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard, Paris, the Ludwig Museum, Köln, Union Pacific, London, Artists Space, New York, LUMA Westbau, Zürich and at Castillo/Corrales, Paris. She has also been invited to do several personnal exhibitions between 2014 and 2017 at Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, Karma International, Los Angeles, Indipendenza, Rome, Edouard Montassut, Paris, Palais de Tokyo, Paris and the Frieze Artist Award, Frieze Art Fair, London.

T. Quelques possibilités de textes

Exhibition from May 8 to June 13, 2009
Opening : Thursday, May 7, 2009, from 6 pm

T like text, of course, or temporary, tentative, turn of phrase, trove, trouble, tension… tea time and T. Rex.

T is an exhibition which offers several possibilities of texts. Artists’ texts that can be images, signs or also an abstract, a description, an explanation, a manifesto, a recollection, a quotation, a poem, a story…

T is a round-trip from text to work, from work to text: a new exercise.

T, it’s some simple sheets of A4 paper, several proposals of printed matter (tracts or small posters), but also a letter, a recording, a distribution or even a republishing, the publication of a work already completed or the layout of a future publication; a model. (more…)
