Fantôme trois is the catalog published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition held from March 12 to May 15, 2022 at Maison des Ailleurs, Musée Arthur Rimbaud de Charleville-Mézières (FR). It includes an introduction by Nathalie Robcis and Lucille Pennel, as well as texts by curators Sarah Mercadante and Benoît Blanchard. The exhibition includes works by Bruno Albizzati, Nour Awada, Hannah Archambault, Camille Benarab-Lopez, Benoît Blanchard, Simon Martin, Giorgio Silvestrini, Elmar Trenkwalder and Marine Wallon.
Bruno Albizzati was born in 1988 and died in 2021. He is represented by the gallery La Forest Divonne, Paris (FR) and Brussels (BE). Bruno Albizzati's work is composed of imprints, traces, such as flashes of light, flashes in broad daylight whose fragility is made of the thickness of the bulging paper, torn, scratched.
Nour Awada was born in 1985. She lives and works between Paris (FR) and Rome (IT). Nour Awada's work is protean; through drawing, sculpture, video and performance, it questions the place of the woman's body in its different meanings - woman-mother, woman-sister, woman-witch, woman-artist.
Hannah Archambault was born in 1996. She lives and works between Paris (FR) and London (UK). Hannah Archambault works with sound in its relationship to the poetry of space. What is at stake in this research is the will to inhabit a place with an emotional charge.
Camille Benarab-Lopez was born in 1989. She lives and works in Montreuil (FR). She is represented by the Chloé Salgado Gallery, Paris (FR). The artist develops a practice of assembly borrowing from everyday objects their support function and their stability - table, screen, shelves - to add a multitude of objects and materials hosting transferred images.
Benoît Blanchard was born in 1982. He lives and works in Reims (FR). The painting of Benoît Blanchard transposes the memory of a crossing of the clouds in flight, in veil on the glass, the wall of a water room, a mirror. The vapor of the clouds condenses into an exhalant foam. Drop by drop, it distills on the canvas, in all the tones, the hours of the day - and of the night.
Simon Martin was born in 1992. He lives and works in Paris (FR). He is represented by the gallery Jousse Entreprise, Paris (FR). Simon Martin's painting is as much about appearance as it is about the persistence of this appearance. It is at the same time memory and trace of memory, memory which mixes with itself: presence of memory and evidence of memory.
Giorgio Silvestrini was born in 1985. He lives and works in Paris (FR). Giorgio Silvestrini's paintings are constructed like stagings where the action has stopped. They are populated with silent clues, animated by an inner life indifferent to the story that we try to make them tell.
Elmar Trenkwalder was born in 1959. He lives and works in Innsbruck (AT). He is represented by the Bernard Jordan Gallery, Paris (FR). In Elmar Trenkwalder's sculpture, volumes, signs and beings take on the appearance that the artist's hands give them. Each work is the result of an experimental know-how that guides the body more than the mind.
Marine Wallon was born in 1985. She lives and works in Montreuil (FR). She is represented by the Galerie Catherine Issert, St-Paul de Vence (FR). In the painting of Marine Wallon, the gesture spreads. There is in it safety, nonchalance, hesitation and impulses. It covers the surface of the canvas as if to encompass the world, to give it a thickness and a smell, that of the paint, the pigments and the binders.
