Turned towards space and the universe, the researchers multiply projects of conquest and colonization of the planets. According to their prognosis, it will one day be necessary to leave a sick land which has become unlivable. It will be necessary to desert, to abandon a world which would then become silent. And if the day was tomorrow, what would our civilization leave behind, and how would look like our new lands? This is what we wanted to imagine in this collective exhibition bringing together the artists Brodbeck & de Barbuat and Cerise Doucède at Galerie Ségolène Brossette.
In the series Memories of a Silent World, places become theatrical scenery from which emanates a sweet melancholy.
Regularly, new planets are discovered outside our solar system. It may be time to colonize the Universe, but what will be found? For many scientists, the modes of adaptation of photosensitive organisms could modify the conditions of appearance of the colors. So we would have new landscapes beyond any reference. These sets, Cerise Doucède imagined them in her series Nouvelles Terres.
By a scenography made up of vestiges of our time, we wanted to bring these two worlds together. The old, our memories and our history, and the one of tomorrow, with still unexplored and uncertain landscapes. A way to question ourselves about our relationship to the environment.
Galerie Ségolène Brossette
Since 2019, the privileged relationship that she has forged with the artists whose work she champions, a relationship based on the confidence built through a mutual desire to work together over a long term. Ségolène is committed to pursuing her plan of « giving photography and drawing the recognition they need in contemporary art. They tend to be seen as two separate media, even though they form part of a whole. » It should come as no surprise that this gallery owner, who wears many hats, has chosen to put down roots in the diverse neighbourhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, where design, modern art, contemporary art and primitive arts cross paths.
