“ALL OF THEM WITCHES” IN MONTEVERITA
By Crash redaction
MONTEVERITA is a new gallery located at 127 rue de Turenne in Paris and held by John Ferrère, Ulysse Geissler and Aurélien Turrettini. These young gallery owners have chosen Marcella Barceló’s works for their opening on April 21st.
The title of the exhibition ALL OF THEM WITCHES is a reference to the book as seen in Rosemary’s Baby film. The show presents the oneiric world of Marcella Barceló through paintings and drawings where whimsical characters are trying to catch their own identity through the representation. By using abundant and varied techniques from acrylic to charcoal, she sharpens our glance in order to tenderly come in a worrying but exciting world from which no-one can get out easily such as the Medusa’s gaze.
MONTEVERITA is an ingenious art project where the space of the gallery, spreading on 400m2 on three levels, is the heart of a complete art programs. A series of art conferences, performances and concerts will be schedule and MONTEVERITA Publishing, has been created in order to publish artist’s books in collaboration with art critics and curators. A program of residency in La Grande Fleurie has also been set up to receive international artists such as the dancer and artist Célia Gondol as the first resident.
On June 8th, MONTEVERITA will launch a group show : ROUND COLOURS gathering artworks of Berger&Berger, Elvire Bonduelle, Caroline Corbasson, Stephen Dean, Richard Gorman, Audrey Perzo, James Rielly and Gerrit Rietveld.
