Joël Andrianomearisoa Things and Something to Remember Before Daylight

Mar 9 — Apr 17, 2024 | Paris, Turenne

Opening on Saturday, March 9, 2024 from 6 to 8 pm

After his presentation at the gallery in September, Almine Rech is pleased to present Things and Something to Remember Before Daylight, Joël Andrianomearisoa’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, on view from March 9 to April 17, 2024.

Best known for investigating the materiality of feelings, the artist explores the universality of human experience, mostly using abstraction to build layers of complex narratives.

Exceptionally, the show brings together Joël Andrianomearisoa’s extraordinarily diverse variety of preferred media to, in a sense, lay bare his vocabulary. Neon lights, sound, poetry, paintings, tapestries, sculptures, everyday objects - like so many elements of his visual language, brought together in a narrow relationship with handicrafts. The exhibition is not so much a celebration of savoir-faire than an investigation of faire, or the act of making, in what appears as an ode to manual work rather than the prefabricated or industrialised. In keeping with the cold, timeless aesthetics of Minimalism, the artist – albeit paradoxically – successfully includes gesture, individuality, voice, poetry and emotion.

— Jérôme Sans, critic and curator
