Rubis Mécénat has launched a series entitled ART(ist), aiming to “capture the profile of artists from different worlds and cultures”. The series regularly highlights the work of well-known and lesser-known artists, while also highlighting the artist’s current status. In this case, Joël Andrianomearisoa is currently presenting the exhibition “Brise du rouge soleil” in the Towers and on the ramparts of Aigues-Mortes, in the Camargue.
Produced by Rubis Mécénat, Alexander Murphy‘s film Joël Andrianomearisoa echoes the artist’s work. The hypnotic dive does not reveal his work in the manner of a documentary but rather plays with the boundaries of the artist’s film, on the side of the enigmatic and the mysterious.
Joël Andrianomearisoa is a visual artist born in 1977 in Antananarivo, Madagascar. He lives and works between Paris and Antananarivo. Since 2019, he has been collaborating with Rubis Mécénat as part of the Ndao Hanavao programme, a laboratory for innovation and creation around social design initiated by Rubis Mécénat in Antananarivo in 2018. After having accompanied him in the adventure of the first Madagascar Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2019, Rubis Mécénat joined forces with the Centre des Monuments Nationaux for the exhibition “Brise du rouge soleil” presented on the Towers and Ramparts of Aigues-Mortes. The artist is proposing a series of works that evoke his world and the history of the monument. The exhibition also unveils an unpublished triptych created by the artist in the Ndao Hanavao laboratory, and the experimental film “La Nuit Dernière”, directed by Alexander Murphy after the work of Joël Andrianomearisoa and produced by Rubis Mécénat.
