|Anne Pesce||1||artist's edition|
Anne Pesce tries to find a definition of painting in the nihilistic context of the recent years. Avoiding to get confused with the movements “neo” and other post-modernism that never end to kill painting, Anne Pesce tries to take it up through a more poetic and philosophical. It creates metaphorical links between painting, words, critical thinking and the world: “I like to paint to stop thinking, think to paint is only an aping of the big tide of the spirit. “
ALPHABET EDITIONS is an alphabetical display of the CEC’s editions (1989-2014), a possibility to see again everything or to purchase a book, a print or a multiple during this “winter sale”. WINTER SALE is neither a sale nor an auction or a sale, but simply the presentation of the still available editions, a new display, a Christmas market and above all a support for the CEC. (more…)
