Off the grid, with Camille Le Meur & Amélie De Beauffort, upcoming exhibition at Plagiarama
Opening on Sunday May 15, 2-7pm
Exhibition from May 15 to June 25, 2022 Curator Yuna Mathieu-Chovet
Amélie De Beauffort unfolds a body of work where drawing embraces its multiplicity: techniques on paper but also weaving, photogram, transfer. The paper is drawn, painted, perforated, torn or bathed. The grid is a recurring pattern, which operates as a structure and as a landmark, drawn or pierced. It is this perforated grid that paradoxically allows porosity to happen, and through it letting go and the unexpected.
Camille Le Meur explores a practice of sculpture and installation derived from architectural materials. Her work develops in the form of semblances of temporary furniture. These elements will be reused in a fluid way in other works. The pattern of the grid is especially significant, the repetition of the modules allows an extension of the work which thus leads towards infinity.
These two artists bring together within their respective practices the same obsession for the pattern of the grid, a patient, precise and repetitive work in the studio which is combined with more rapid and spontaneous gestures. They thus offer structured forms also imprinted with letting go. By accepting both control and randomness, they give their work the freedom to get off the grid.
