Markus Hofer - Le Tour de la Réalité

Markus Hofer - Le Tour de la Réalité

From 06/09/2012 To 20/10/2012

<p> Vienna-based artist Markus Hofer (Austria, 1977-...) develops his work around cognitive dissonance. Each sculpture disturbs the eye and generates confusion through a new form of &laquo;trompe-l&rsquo;oeil&raquo;, urging the visitor to look, to stop for a moment, then look again.<br /> Hence the title of this new show the &laquo;Tour of Reality&raquo;. Everyday objects come to life, grow and intertwine. The artist takes pleasure making havoc of their reality, often with a touch of humor, or sometimes through a mild form of irritation. The objects are carefully selected and acquire a fresh layer of meaning as the result of his sculptural interventions. Our usual patterns of perception are turned upside down but also expanded and put in a new context. Sculptures become &laquo;active matter&raquo;, as he sometimes calls them, referring to their independence and their dynamic components, which reinterpret subject matter and give the appearance of being in perpetual motion; evolving from one meaning to the next.</p>

Alice Pilastre

From 08/03/2012 To 14/04/2012

<p> Alice Pilastre ventures between very ancient techniques and resolutely contemporary forms of art. Tapestry/textile and music are at the base of her work. Her &laquo;Ritournelles&raquo; are a poetic diversion from the traditional music boxes and invite the visitor to interact with the artwork, generation random or controlled music. A nostalgic leap back in time meanwhile a surprising look into Alice&rsquo;s world of dreams.</p>

Natasja Lefevre

From 19/01/2012 To 26/02/2012

<p> &quot;There is something poetic about the empty shell of a cadaver, the stare of a dead, unseeing eye. The tension between life and death is captured in their shape. With my photos, I wanted to reflect on death as anecdote, present the polarity of life and death.&rdquo; Lefevre&rsquo;s work in clay continues to explore the duality of existence: the eternal versus the transient, the visible versus the invisible. Her sculptures always strike a balance between the mysterious and the ordinary.</p>
