Ingrid Luche, Le lapin turquoise -The turquoise rabbit-
In the series “Les Maisons de mes rêves” (Dream houses), artist Ingrid Luche presents places she remembers from her past and spatial situations, rearranging a manipulated context, fragmented by the process of memory. In her work, notions of scale (physical or imaginary) and perception (real or manipulated) come into play through her memory of a place, a sculpture and even a particular light or by an invitation to enter the space. The exhibition could create a sensation of déjàvu for the viewer; streets, galleries and public places reappear as an interval.


Air de Paris - Bruno Serralongue
Gallery owners Florence Bonnefous and Edouard Merino originally opened their gallery in Nice in 1990 before moving to Paris in 1994. Artists such as Liam Gillick, Brice Dellsperger, Ingrid Luche, John McCarthy, Plamen Dejanov, Swetlana Heger and Rob Pruitt have all exhibited at the couple’s Parisian gallery and for this event, the gallery has chosen to focus on its time in Nice with the exhibition Faits-divers (News in brief) based around Bruno Serralongue’s work of the same name.

“From November 1993 to April 1995, I systematically read the news in brief section of the Nice Matin newspaper every morning. Thanks to the information contained in the articles, I was able to pinpoint the location of these events and photograph them. A summary of the published newspaper article is etched beneath each photograph” – Bruno Serralongue.
