Guided tours exhibition Laurent DELAIRE, These blanks that I dig

“Laurent Delaire probes the mysterious forces and order hidden behind the world of appearances. It turns into an enigma what is in the field of evidence.” - Jean-Claude Guerrero.

Guided tours exhibition Laurent DELAIRE, These blanks that I dig

Built in three chapters, the exhibition presents paintings, drawings and installations.

In drawings that often depict intimate interiors, the artist parasitizes on the usual codes of perspective by taking parts of the image or fragmenting them.

On his monochrome paintings, some of which cite the Dutch Golden Age, he proceeds by erasing the medium in order to gradually reveal the initial drawing as well as the white background of the support that pictorially translates the light. There comes an epiphany (a manifest) where images often marked with a meditative or spiritual dimension emerge.

All these figurations invite you to a motionless journey that can be linked symbolically to inner exploration.

In the immersive installation 'They all became shadows', rubbing prints depict Absence within a domestic and familiar interior. It's a meditation on the impermanence of our condition.

Finally, the artist devotes two rooms to his asemic writings that present a cursive, regular, controlled and indecipherable spelling. Ascetic, this experience requires on the part of the artist-scribe a presence in the gesture. It intimately links the plastic process and the life whose flow it expresses.
