  • Content: Conversation between Thu Van Tran, Pedro Morais and Magali Nachtergael now online!

    Conversation between Thu Van Tran, Pedro Morais (Art critic and independent curator) and Magali Nachtergael (Associate Professor in Literature, Culture and Contemporary Art at Paris University 13, curator and art critic), that took place on the occasion of her exhibition at Almine Rech Paris, on January 11th, 2020.

    For her first solo show at the gallery, Thu Van Tran has chosen the double-edged title Trail Dust, which conjures up transience and evanescence but is also the code name for the toxic spraying operations carried out by the U.S. military during the Vietnam War. The transience of life and the finality of death, the transformation of organic into mineral matter and the infinite timescales of mineralization and petrification processes are the themes of Thu Van Tran’s exhibition – as are such ongoing concerns as the nature and properties of the materials  onstituting her art, and how these materials might address such ever-present issues as the atrocities of the recent past. - Extract from the text by Rahma Khazam

  • Content: Conversation between Allen Jones and Fabrice Hergott now online!

    Conversation between Allen Jones and Fabrice Hergott (Director of the Musée d'Art Moderne de Paris), that took place on the occasion of his exhibition at Almine Rech Paris, on March 7th, 2020.

    Link to the video here

    Allen Jones' paintings, with their careful layering of glazes and paint, show him to clearly be spectacular colourist. In turn they evoke a classical world that here in France might bring to mind the compositions of Nicolas Poussin, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, or the Henri Matisse of Luxe Calme et Volupté (1904) or La Danse (1910). Jones’ sculptures are carefully constructed parodies of commercial window shopping, which simultaneously remind the viewer of the amazing realism of Degas and his sculpture of female Parisian dancers and bathers. Like Degas, Jones has become increasingly obsessed with the theatre and cabaret – views from the balcony to the stage and back again. It gives him a particular opportunity to reflect on the way theatrical light is able to shine and create magic that in turn becomes a wonderful excuse for Jones’s virtuoso displays of colour on canvas. - Norman Rosenthal
