The Photographic Center Rouen Normandie presents Thorsten Brinkmann, Farce Satrape, an exhibition to be held from October 13, 2018 to January 26, 2019.
Opening Friday, October 12 from 6 pm in the presence of the artist
The first solo exhibition in France by the German artist Thorsten Brinkmann (1971), Farce Satrape gives way to some of the illustrious figures of knights, padre, donna and other hybrid creatures imagined by the artist. In this gallery of portraits made between the walls of his studio, the artist stages and embodies fictional characters with the appearance of high and proud dignitaries. The use of a palette juxtaposed ocher, emerald green, vermilion and lapis lazuli, the use of fabrics and the proud bearing of the subject recall to our imagination the reviving portraits of kings, queens and princesses. One would have almost the feeling of being tozed, if there was not, as a face, this only fringed shade.
