Exhibition at Catherine Putman Gallery until 28th May 2016
What an enchanting discovery at Catherine Putman Gallery, presenting for the first time the paper works of Frédéric Malette – after we already had a chance to get a glimpse of his work during the Parisian art fair Drawing Now. The artist, born in 1978, practices drawing with virtuosity, only to then erase some portions or partly scribble on it. Drawing his inspiration from family souvenirs (Les cris silencieux / Silent Shouts, 2014) or from collective memory (Caligula, 2015), the artist presents us with his reflections on history, memory and colonial heritage.
A complex yet exhilarating body of work.
