MAZER Samir HD-4okbis

To draw a shape with repetition as its purpose. Samir Mazer is an artist who has chosen Moroccan clay tiles, their irregular and sensual surfaces, to create rhythmic patterns. “The repetition of shape and color upon a zellige tile is a musical exercise. It is like drawing a pixel, creating a module and then sampling it to make a track”. An exercise that remains all too difficult and too discrete to be saved from frequent copies by big brands and creators lacking the foresight and mental skill to plan out the sequence of shapes in space.

With Shadow, Aleksej Iskos enhances the wonderful mirror effect for Handvark “What makes a mirror a mirror is not the glass or the frame. It’s the very thin layer of amalgam behind the glass. Shadow Mirror reveals the true nature of the mirror. It’s a magic object floating in space, making you wonder like a child how it is possible that the whole world can be inside of it”. – Aleksej Iskos (more…)

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.” (more…)

 

LELIEVRE RIVIERA

Since 2013, Ateliers Zelij has built a bridge between traditional Moroccan zellige tile-work and contemporary architecture. The geometric rigor of patterns combined with the soft irregularity of surfaces and shades of color have made of these antique glazed and chiseled clay tiles a must-have in decoration. The zellige tile-work installation, which Hermes chose to put on display at their art de vivre stand in Milan, is but one example. Artist and designer, Samir Mazer born in Tetouan Morocco, reinvents new patterns and new formats on a daily basis with Delphine Laporte from within their Toulouse based studio. A complementary partnership, both at work and at home, has made this a duo key figure of the zellige revival. (more…)
