For this singular new season, the arnaud Lebecq gallery is pleased to present NO FRONTIERS, an exhibition about a world without borders. The globalization and instantaneity where our planet is now installed have been major factors in the current pandemic that has already taken away hundreds of thousands of lives . It therefore remains promising for the future.
« What happens in Bangkok does not stay in Bangkok »
NO FRONTIERS invites us to explore the works of five Thai artists renowned on the international contemporary art scene. It transports us into a pictorial renewal presenting various viewpoints on our societies and the challenges of existence, especially during the lockdown period.
Matisse said: “What I dream of is an art of balance, purity, tranquillity, without worrying or disturbing subjects, … ».
Far from these contemplative thoughts, the invited artists seek to generate strong reactions, even discomfort and deep feelings. The consciousness of the viewer is questioned in order to be transported in an introspective journey and make him open up to our 21st century society.
A large use of colour is one of the common points in the presented creations. Colours, by their power and intensity, express radicality. This profusion of colours interacts with our bodies thus giving to the raised subjects a sensual power, a spiritual force, an emotional energy.
The visitor is naturally invited to reflexion and introspection, opening to questioning and inspiration, why not on the next world.
