Baptiste Debombourg, Transient, solo exhibition

at Krupic Kersting Galerie – KUK
An der Schanz 1a, 50735 Cologne, Germany
on view from 09/06 until 31/08/2017

After the contextual installation “Raging Dreams”, realized at S12 gallery in Bergen (Norway), Baptiste Debombourg presents his new solo show « TRANSIENT » at krupic kersting gallery in Cologne (Germany).

« Transient » explores the transformative aspects of the material, and the ever-changing state of matter, that goes beyond our human perception.

Everything that we perceive is subject to the effect of time and gravity, a slow transformation of material in time.

It is this invisible force that interests the artist, and through control, but also accident and improvisation, he explores his subject. Debombourg offers to the viewer an experience of the transformation, of the transient state of matter, and a new vision of light and darkness.

« The tangible treatment in monochrome black lends the work a status that is at least two-fold – sculptural and pictorial – and gives rise to additional questions related to the work’s setting, plane, vanishing points, surfaces, volume, reflections, and the position of the viewer ».*

Baptiste Debombourg, Raging Dreams – over the horizon, solo exhibition
at S12 Gallery og Verksted,
Skostredet 12, 5017 Bergen
Norway
On view from 19/05 to the 16/07/2017

S12 Open Access Studio and Gallery is celebrating its 10th anniversary with the opening of the exhibition RAGING DREAMS over the horizonby the French artist Baptiste Debombourg.

Debombourg has received international acclaim for his monumental installations. Waves of broken glass are breaking into and flooding rooms and structures, taking over and transforming buildings and areas. The work can be experienced as both threatening and beautiful as the artist both destroys and rebuilds. The broken and reconstructed material conveys many stories and is often interpreted as a critique of the world we live in – of consumerism or a world in the process of falling apart.

In S12’s Gallery Baptiste Debombourg has made a new installation–Raging Dreams where the energy and power of dreams is a central theme, and where the main material is laminated glass. Debombourg does work with a variety of materials and techniques, but prefers to use materials we are surrounded with in our daily life. In this installation, the remodeled sheets of broken laminated glass, remind us of the destructive abilities of natural forces, as they take over the the gallery, parallel with the silhouette horizon in the background. Through his unique and eye catching artwork he makes the viewer experience his/hers surroundings in a new and unexpected way.

Naturalia et artificialia. ECCENTRIC Art & Research’s first exhibition in Milan announced for October 12 2016.

Please scroll down for English version

ECCENTRIC Art & Research è lieta di presentare la sua prima mostra che inaugurerà il 12 ottobre 2016 a Milano. La mostra includerà lavori di tutti gli artisti rappresentati fino ad oggi: Ivana Adaime Makac, Jamie Allen, Tomislav Brajnović, Sarah Ciracì, Baptiste Debombourg, Gabriele Di Matteo, Federico Luger, Brian Montuori, Steve Piccolo, Anja Puntari, Axel Straschnoy e Massimiliano Viel.

Naturalia et artificialia erano due categorie con cui si classificavano le meraviglie esposte negli studioli durante il Rinascimiento. Nel contesto di questa mostra queste categorie sono il fil rouge che attraversa i temi trattati da artisti e opere. Ma non è questa differenziazione in se stessa artificiale? Perché non esiste natura senza artificio, senza il filtro della cultura, né tecnologia o artificio che non partecipi della natura. Questo è il discorso che la mostra intende affrontare.

ECCENTRIC è un dispositivo flessibile senza una location fissa. Naturalia et artificialia avrà luogo nello spazio MyOwnGallery presso Superstudio, via Tortona 27, Milano, dal 12 al 21 ottobre 2016.

Naturalia et artificialia si realizza con il generoso supporto di PERFORMANT, SCOA ed EXEO Consulting.

ENGLISH

ECCENTRIC Art & Research is pleased to present its first exhibition in Milan, opening on October 12, 2016. The exhibition will feature the work of all its represented artists up-to-date: Ivana Adaime Makac, Jamie Allen, Tomislav Brajnović, Sarah Ciracì, Baptiste Debombourg, Gabriele Di Matteo, Federico Luger, Brian Montuori, Steve Piccolo, Anja Puntari, Axel Straschnoy and Massimiliano Viel.

The title of the exhibition is Naturalia et artificialia, both of the categories with which the wonders exhibited in the cabinets of curiosities during the Renaissance were classified.
In the context of this exhibition both concepts work as the common thread that brings together the diverse topics addressed by the featured artists and artworks. All of them, in one way or another, pose questions about issues that have to do either with nature, or with artifice and technology, and often with both. However, isn’t’ this differentiation in itself artificial, and even false? Because there is no nature without artifice—without the artificial filter of culture—nor technology or artifice which doesn’t participate of nature.

ECCENTRIC is a flexible dispositive with no definite location. Naturalia et artificialia will take place in the space MyOwnGallery at Superstudio, via Tortona 27, Milano, from October 12 through the 21.

Naturalia et articifialia is realised with the generous support of PERFORMANT, SCOA and EXEO Consulting.
