Press release

Almine Rech New York is pleased to announce Trois Rivières a solo exhibition of new works by Alexandre Lenoir. This will be Lenoir's fourth solo exhibition with the gallery. The show will be on view from September 8 to October 23, 2021.

Memories are slippery and fickle. They can be both vivid and hazy, make us feel simultaneously closer and farther away from a certain time and place, and be shared by many while also remaining intensely personal. These inherent contradictions are at the heart of Alexandre Lenoir's first solo show in the United States, Trois Rivières which comprises nearly a dozen paintings based on old black-and-white and sepia toned photographs belonging to his grandmother. Although Lenoir never met most of the people in these pictures, the photographs themselves are quite familiar to him as they have decorated the walls and shelves of his grandparents’ house in Guadeloupe for as long as he can remember. Translating these fading photographs into large-scale paintings, Lenoir captures the ephemerality of disparate memories while emphasizing their collective resonance.
