until 11.10. | #2537ARtatBerlin | Galerie Gilla Lörcher presents from 7th September 2019 the solo exhibition continuous sculpture with an art work by the French artist Quentin Lefranc.
Galerie Gilla Loercher is very pleased to present the solo show of French artist Quentin Lefranc during the Berlin Art Week season. Envisioned as a place of study, architecture serves as a framework, a territory, a playground to Quentin Lefranc. The artist always intends to visualize a conversation between the site and what is materialized in it. The continuous sculpture is the thirty-centimeter elevation of orthogonal fabric that spans the entire area of the exhibit. One cannot go around the sculpture. It isn’t an unreachable enclosure. it isn’t a defined center in a given space. There isn’t one point of view or a succession of points of view favored by the place that hosts it. There is no distance or hierarchy. The continuous sculpture is a proposal on the positioning of the art and its apprehension. Its borders are the same as the space that hosts it, it is its foundation. It is a consistent pattern; and through the presence of the sculpture and its size and the rhythm it creates, it takes advantage of the configuration of the space in which it evolves. It invites ambling – the height of the fabric leads visitors to step over it.
French artist Quentin Lefranc lives and works in Paris (France). After studying at the Art School of Rueil-Malmaison and the School of Arts Décoratifs in Paris, Quentin Lefranc creates art works that are not quite paintings or sculptures, not even architectural elements. It is about all of that, in each of his propositions. He focuses on questioning space and does so through diversity: by questioning the existence of the work itself. The work of Quentin Lefranc has been shown in many art insitutions and galleries s.a.: Palais de Tokyo, Paris (F); Centre d’Art Contemporain, Nîmes (F), Académie Royale des beaux-arts, Bruxelles (B), Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, Pantin (F); Galerie Jérôme Pauchant, Paris (F); Galerie Municipale Julio Gonzales, Arceuil (F); Château de la Reuil-Malmaison, Reuil-Malmaison (F); CNAP Centre national des arts plastiques, Paris (F), galerie art & essai, Rennes (F), ZKM projekt space, Berlin (D), Galerie Gilla Lörcher, Berlin (D), a.o.
