The show was based at an offsite project at the Cité des Arts and featured work by artists Bianca Bondi, Joel Dean, Cédric Fargues, Bea Fremderman, Timothy Furey, Frieder Haller, Rosie Hastings & Hannah Quinlan, Leslie Martinelli, Anna Sagström, Pepo Salazar, Fabio Santacroce and Anna Solal.

Spanning sculpture, video-as-readymade, readymades-as-sculpture, photography and a site-specific sculpture/installation, the show brought together works that address collaboration by using the fertile metaphor of the garden, touching upon the urgency of creation and the making of new bonds in an arid and stilted atmosphere:

“In the shadow of a nuclear station in Dungeness, England sits Derek Jarman’s meditative and arid garden. Poking out of the flint surface, its irises, plants and rusty crosses made from wrenches, is a far cry from the green monochrome of Bree Van de Kampf ’s perfectly tended lawns that adorn Wisteria Lane.”**

The Garden was on at Paris’ ROOM E-10 27, running February 11 to March 4, 2016.

The Garden @ ROOM E-10 27, Feb 11 – 24

10 February 2016

The Garden group show will be on at Paris’ ROOM E-10 27, opening February 11 and running to February 24.

Thirteen artists will show work in ROOM E-10 27’s garden. The pieces will contribute to the environment, finding moments between the domesticity of nature and the ability to overcome and menace it, according to the press release, which also tells a tender story about Derek Jarman’s meditative and arid garden:

“Poking out of the flint surface, its irises, plants and rusty crosses made from wrenches, is a far cry from the green monochrome of Bree Van de Kampf’s perfectly tended lawns that adorn Wisteria Lane.”

Artists in the show include Rosie Hastings & Hannah Quinlan, Anna SolalFabio SantacroceAnna Sagström, and Cédric Fargues.

Cédric Fargues @ Life Gallery, Jun 6 – Jul 6

5 June 2014

Artist Cédric Fargues is exhibiting his latest show, titled ARTOAST, at London’s Life Gallery from June 6 – July 6.

With a veil of mystery surrounding the show, and repeated banners and tweets that read only My ARTOAST could mean anything, Fargues creates an air of intrigue about the exhibition – will it be graphic or performative, static or dynamic, will we be the conconspirators or the sacrifice?

See the Life Gallery website for no details. **
