Attente

For their first Parisian solo show, David Brognon Stéphanie Rollin will present « Call (809) 610 – WAIT », a new series of works, at the untilthen gallery as of the 8thof September 2018. Installation, sculpture, photos and straw marquetry embark us upon a peculiar kind of time travel, one where the act of waiting keeps us hanging in a state of limbo. This very subject has become an obsession for both artists. Since 2008 David Brognon and Séphanie Rollin have built an impressive corpus dedicated to time, its measure, its passing, its meanders and dead-ends. “The world is a waiting room. As of our birth we are trapped on a timeline where death is the natural yet unpredictable outcome, give or take a few years. Our daily activities are but a mere artifice aimed at cheating the waiting game. Our works are always a description of this wait between hope, resignation and impatience. Yet, the languor of the wait is also the impassioned state where movement begins. A gestation before the birth of action.” Lire la suite…

By filling a contemporary need, Robert Samuel has become a new benchmark to measure time.  Lire la suite…

Throughout the twentieth century, the district welcomed those displaced by the currents of history. Lire la suite…
