The infinite metamorphoses of the living
The exhibition, a Franco-Chinese cooperation, presents the paintings and installations of the artist Sylvie Deparis. For many years she has travelled around Asia, taking part in artist residencies. She is inspired by the plant world and perceives it as a dynamic balance of flow, the circulation of sap. Her approach is seen in the series of drawings, paintings and installations throughout the space.
The artist feels a deep connection with the plant world and this feeds into her practices and her drawings. This intimate relationship does not induce concerns about representation but a search for symbiosis with trees, branches, leaves, all transcribed in the moment by hand. The artist takes heart from the arrangement, guided by an intuitive perception of the whole.
Blurring, delineation, movement, all tend to follow the contours of the infinite metamorphoses of the living, in its rhythms and its oscillations between appearance and disappearance.
