A new gallery in the heart of the Marais is now a common thing. But a modest, immediately intimate stall, held by two photographers, opened with the ardor of art or the passion of adventures (it depends), it is rarer.
The Galerie des Minimes opens at number 13 of the eponymous street, in the 3rd district. Founded by photographers Félix Cholet and Olga du Saillant, it inaugurates its first chapter with works by the two artists. The exhibition “Le Vent est le Double de l’Horizon” (Wind is the Double of the Horizon), inspired by Alain Jouffroy’s book Aube à l’antipode, forms a dialogue around nature. Olga du Saillant and Félix Cholet see it as a game of abstract forms, an erotic surface or a confusion of forms and surfaces. The hanging, already neat and melodious, gives to see layers, barks, crumpling, hollows that the photography supports by its grain and its obscurities.
The coups de coeur have pleasant emphatic effusions. One gets carried away because the heart is conquered. We tell them to each other in cafés, on street corners, we repeat them to those we love. One would like everyone to come to the table. Well, go ahead.
