Arles : Eros et Nature, Féminisme(s) 3


For the third consecutive year the Galerie Joseph Antonin has put a lot of effort into its exhibition space at the Chapelle Sainte-Anne to create a new journey around the diversity of feminism in contemporary art and photography. This sensitive, artistic and aesthetic immersion gains its momentum from a theme that approaches feminism from the many angles of power and desire in the scope of a positive reading of societal issues and current events, and specifically this time with Eros and nature.

This is the time to bring together those that seem to have two different aims: the countryside and human portrayal, ecology and the sense of beauty, the nude and abstraction, eroticism and thought. From a strong, subterranean idea, Eros, who comes in many facets and colours, moving, metaphysically and philosophically, from the pagan figure of love to that of a possible transfiguration into the supersensitive domain of the idea (platonic love), we retain Eros as the power of desire and knowledge, the axis of immense drive, that of life (as Marcel Duchamp said about it “Eros, c’est la vie /Rrose Sélavy” Love, that’s life).  Tying it together, in sending this idea back to that of nature, it is the form of sensitivity in its positive, vital acceptance that we wish to call up, but also the uncanny kind of uneasiness that today confronts the aspirations of civilisation and culture, following the threats of destruction that press upon our environment. Naturally, of course, we listen to the world that surround  us, the perception of this reality which teaches us how infinite and full of possibilities it is, but also these territories that give us support, of which we are a part, which envelope us like a second skin.
