For the first time at the Salon, the gallery is presenting a duo show with Amélie Bigard and Renaud Artaban. “Playground Love” combines paintings and installations to explore the melancholy of adolescence, dark and tender at the same time. It’s an exploration of the emotions and first desires of adolescence, of breaking free from the shackles of family and preconceived ideas to dream and invent between the sky and the tar.
Graduated from the Beaux-Arts of Cergy, FR (2021), Amélie Bigard develops an artistic practice that takes shape mainly with painting, but also with video and installation. Borrowing from the art of the icon the technique of tempera on wood, the use of gold leaf or the quasi-religious postures of her subjects, she presents «icons of a godless world», which seem to find refuge in the meeting and the game.

After a degree in history, he graduated from the Beaux-Arts de Marseille (2021). Renaud Artaban’s paintings summon childhood spirits and bury them in tar. Desolate landscapes from which emerge irradiated monsters, remnants, burnt-out houses and surviving flowers etched on canvas. More info
