JESSICA BACKHAUS

JESSICA BACKHAUS

D’un charme fait de naturel et d’invention, d’une grâce qui monte avec la force du mot propre, de vérite et de beauté qui vont dans une correspondance presque parfait, d’une grand harmonie colorée entre le sons et le sens, d’accords et d’accents émis comme pour la première fois; et pur bien la servir il faut enthousiasme, lyrisme … La imagination est sa raison ailée: de la sagesse et de la folie entrent dans son envergure.

He interested in death and impermanence, how things shine and how they disappear. How love comes and goes. I find film beautiful. How it fades and disintegrates. His inspiration is cinema, to capture what Werner Herzog describes as ‘the ecstatic truth’ in everyday events.  The fizzing speed and enduring calamity of childhood; the truth without the sentimentality.

lemaire s/s 2016

lemaire s/s 2016

The French National Galerie Jeu De Paume, built in 1861 during the reign of Napoleon III and originally housed real tennis courts, is commonly a place dedicated to contemporary art. Bared white walls and wooden floor became a perfect scenario to showcase a collection in the name of discreet elegance and with an optimal level of charm, in one word – Lemaire. The silhouette of the collection was still very Lemaire, meaning playing with volumes, mostly oversize and flared, but this time with some retro-inspired elements and a woman showcasing more than usual her nonchalant side.

There are some mornings I wish I was Oe. Trying to teach the salmon How to swim the other way. These statements are dainty. They say, “I love to pussyfoot, I won’t look you in the eye.” Here is the thrust of it: I will seek out my own satisfaction.

Ran Slavin’s WORLD5 installation view at Herzliya Museum Israel. WORLD5 distances from photography and empirical notions of reality or indexical models of the photography medium. WORLD5 is a secessionist space. It is a slow arcade, a space of wonder, an odyssey not under the jurisdiction of first, second or third world rules. It has no beginning nor end. Its reading is circular. A slow shifting and virtual arcade inspired by an ever expanding digitalis. WORLD5 has departed from ‘real’ representation and into an all encompassing virtual sphere. A techno topia, a utopia, a non place, a remote cyberia, a new somewhere.
