Time and Space constitute the canvasses on which all human activities, past, present and future occur. The exhibition Artempo was an intriguing interrogation on those themes, and in particular on Time as a destructor and producer of art.
Academia: Qui es-tu, on the other hand, examines the dynamical process of artistic creation. The site of the Chapelle de l’Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris is indeed the ideal venue to examine the interplay between inherited academic knowledge accumulated over centuries, education, and the subsequent transformation and transmission of that knowledge into a novel artistic creation
