Alain Séchas & Haim Steinbach

Booth n°N04

Malgré la différence frappante entre les deux pratiques, chacune sur un niveau conceptuel et formel, les peintures du français Alain Séchas ainsi que les wall texts de l'américain Haim Steinbach sont liées. Les lignes noires structurant les chats d'Alain Séchas se retrouvent dans les lettres noires des textes trouvés de Haim Steinbach, tout en présentant des utilisations similaires de sujets de la vie quotidienne : des scènes tirées de vies ordinaires contre des mots conçus comme objets. Ce lien poétique qui lie ces deux pratiques nous offre alors un dialogue autour de ces oeuvres. Pour Nova, les deux artists travailleront sur de nouvelles pièces, des peintures et wall texts créés pour enrichir ce dialogue. 

Despite the apparent gap between their specific practice, both on a conceptual and on a formal level, the paintings of French artist Alain Séchas and the wall texts of American artist Haim Steinbach’s are linked. The dark lines framing Séchas’ cats echo back to the black letters of Steinbach’s found wall texts, while similarities in the use of day-to-day subjects emerge: ordinary human sceneries VS designed words as objects. As this poetic formal link outlines both practices, it offers a lively discussion between two very different bodies of works. For Nova, both artists will work on new pieces, paintings and wall texts especially created to enrich this dialogue.
