Sebastien Arrighi

17/05 – 30/06/2019

For his first solo exhibition at the Sintitulo gallery, Sebastien Arrighi makes a significant choice of images among his few current series: large and small formats establish in the design of the exhibition route reports of scale in the landscape.

“The landscape is taken as a body that is to disturb, to transform, to reinvent perhaps, at least to test and rediscover. (…) The first direction is given to us first, as a matter of course, is the slow grasping, without spectacle or sensationalism, in an aesthetic of rigor and discretion, of the landscape discovered by the one who frequents it, surveys it, tames it and never ceases to examine it carefully. The one who inhabits it and who builds a knowledge of it in the daily exercise of walking, in the regular practice of attendance.

This gives a precise photograph, long thought, adjusted, which is held by the attention it reveals and asks for. A photograph that never offers us a global point of view, an overview, a collection of characteristics, but which will instead seek to make the element live in its context, the detail in the relationship that inserts it into an indefinite continuity, the play of echoes and similarities that make the world live and replace the idea of its unity. This is where the second direction comes to articulate he first one. It works in a way sideways, through an e and displacement and disjunction. It consists first of all in a kind of disorder, a slight spatial and temporal confusion. What we are given to see is both very precisely located and curiously similar to another place, another space, another way of existing. There is the appearance of witnesses from another time or elsewhere, very perfectly dressed in the clothes of the here and the usual.

This is what gives Sébastien Arrighi’s photographs this dreamy flavour, this little shake of the feeling of reality. (…) What is at stake in the intersection of these two perspectives is a position, the place of the gaze, the choice of a point of view. We’ve always thought of the landscape as what’s standing in front of us, at a distance. Here, the landscape is built in a relationship of belonging or interiority. »

Marta Zgierska, Votive Figure II

Marta Zgierska

17/01 – 08/03/2020
galerie sintitulo, mougins

In her (not so) counterfeit and perfect images in many ways, Marta never ceases to play her own role in her ceaseless quest for the more-than-perfect. When she wears the mask of this role to be played, she also plays mine and yours: all in search of this more-than-perfect against which ancient wisdoms would warn us (…)

Quel hasard

20/12 – 10/01/2020
galerie sintitulo, mougins

The “hasard” that gave rise to this body of exhibition begins with a workshop visit. A visit during which finished works and works in progress beckon us at the same time, with an insistence of their own. “Workshop drawings”, as the artists like to call them, and which are often not necessarily produced to be shown but constitute a kind of vacancy of the mind (…)

Comment on marche

03/10 – 31/11/2019
galerie sintitulo, mougins

Subject of scientific and technical investigation, walking is seen here as the motive artists choose to state the content of their art. This exhibition pursues an inventory of the forms that the walk in art has taken, in the wake of the works with which the notion of landscape was initiated: solitary journey, stroll, imaginary journey, reconnaissance or documentation, crossings of territory, scientific or proxy travel…

Exhibition as part of: “des marches, démarches”, a cultural event on the scale of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region coordinated by the Frac Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur.

With: Sebastien Arrighi, Elia Cantori, David Casini, Favret & Manez*, Jean Philippe Roubaud*, Jérémie Setton*, Arnaud Vasseux* (*Artists whose works are part of the Frac PACA collection).

Molding and impression are the main terms within his creative process, repeatedly introducing issues related to photography, to the emergence of image, to the dialectic relation between positive and negative. In his sculptures, just as much in his paper works, the features and the qualities of different materials provoke a large variety of gestures (…)
