Galerie Ephémère presents Gil Rigoulet and his guests, Victoire Orth and Nervis Ferrer. Three dialogues around the Body, three intimacies.
“Time reveals an intimacy, 20 years later these images reappear in serenity, a vanished love lays down these precious paintings.
These visions are a sketch. This body that I look at every day is no longer a body made of skin and flesh, it draws pictorial forms born of passion. This body has its balance, its plenitude only in its complete nudity.
My gaze takes only bits of it, this proximity is that of the breath, of the audible breathing, of its smell. His movements and the light create a parade of visual games.
I have the impression of living in the heart of a multiple work in progress. Everything is mixed up, the words are no longer valid, my fingers caress, touch its whiteness, its shivers, my eyes constantly translate my feelings on this visible skin like paintbrushes.”
Images of this intimacy are lightly solarized and thus preserve the pictorial eye I wore on those days.
The prints are small formats on Japanese Washi paper, Kozo Thin Natural.
