SUSPENSION / STILLNESS
07.12.2021 > 13.03.2022
ETEL ADNAN, TRISHA DONNELLY, LILI DUJOURIE, SUZAN FRECON, CHARLOTTE POSENENSKE
This exhibition presents the work of five artists from different generations who invite us to suspend time, and encourage us to take a pause for contemplation by creating a suspended moment. For the most part, these artists have had limited exposure in France, despite being wellknown internationally.
Born in 1925 in Beirut, Lebanon, Etel Adnan’s poetic and colorful landscapes complement the large works by American artist Susan Frecon (b. 1941, Pennsylvania, USA). The sculptures of Charlotte Posenenske (b. 1930, Wiesbaden, Germany) create a fascinating dialogue with the sensitive offerings of Lili Dujourie (b. 1941, Roulers, Belgium) within the context of an approach informed by the feminism of the 1960s. Trisha Donnelly (b. 1974, San Francisco, USA) confronts us with a fixed image that provokes many physical and visual sensations.
