A major and unclassifiable figure of the 20th century, Jean Dubuffet occupies a special place in the history of the gallery. The exhibition will present a series of unpublished drawings made between 1948 and 1981; they are from the cycle of Matériologies (including the Historiette de Terre, the result of his many experiments with matter), as well as the famous characters from the Hourloupe cycle.

LightGlass presentation (Masterpix)

04.20.2021 - 04.29.2021

baudoin lebon is pleased to invite DupifPhoto to present in preview the LightGlass, an ultra-performing glass with a surprising optical quality that enhances your photographic works without interfering with the sensation between your iris and the work of art.


This tempered glass is as thin as your phone’s and is scratch-proof. Its thinness allows a direct contact and a perfect reading of your picture. The photo paper used for this mount is of high color quality and durability and gives perfect results.


The extremely neat print is carefully placed between the glass and the metal back with the use of neutral ph glue, and an aluminium chassis is placed on the back The lightness of the whole mounting is astonishing.

 

Invited artists : isabelle girollet et emmanuel ségaut.

 

from April 20 to 29, 10 am to 6 pm

Chimères

Highlights

Chimeras

02.26.2021 - 03.28.2021

Baudoin lebon presents the exhibition Chimeras, with Joel-Peter Witkin and Patrick Bailly-Maître-Grand from Thursday, February 25 to Sunday, March 28, 2021.

These two photographers, masters of installations, have always explored themes that emphasize the strange, the surreal, in order to reveal « chimeras ».

In Joel-Peter Witkin’s work, we are surrounded by strange beings, between realistic and fantastic creatures.  Through a work of hybridization, he gives body to beings that relate to all species without belonging to any.

As for Patrick Bailly-Maître-Grand, he metamorphoses everyday objects or objects purchased in flea markets. In Recto Verso a Plexiglas figurine gives birth to a kind of four-armed Martian, with bones everywhere and a two-faced head who does not know which side to look at.

These two photographers are also outstanding technicians, who explore the inventiveness of the photographic act in the intimacy of the laboratory, through various manipulations and formulas, and reveal to us a poetic and conceptual imagination.

Maya Mercer is a Franco-American artist. Daughter of radical English dramatist, playwright, and screenwriter David Mercer, Maya grew up between London, Paris, and Los Angeles. Self-taught as a visual artist, Mercer has always lived in a narrative world, experiencing ?life as theater? from early childhood. She calls herself a regionalist ?photocinema? artist. Mercer now lives and works in Northern California where she directs mostly teenagers in visual stories inspired by the social conditions of the rural American Far West. Her work has been shown in galleries, museum exhibitions and art fairs throughout North America and Europe.

"Mercer has become an adopted daughter of the Wild West. Living as she does in the interior of California, that vast and varied state, a country within a country, has its grip on her entire consciousness. She finds it a First World within a First World ? and a Third World within a Third World as well.

Mercer?s subjects are young, beautiful, tragic and playful, and strangely removed from time even as they reflect contemporary stresses and historic memories. While her art echoes the decadence of late-19th century precursors, however, it also looks ahead to a new, perilous age of sensuality, confusion, and encroaching dystopia. In this regard Maya Mercer is less hedonist than oracle, less Salome than Cassandra. Her work is no indulgence; it is a warning.? Peter Frank
