BEST WISHES 2024

Lost time, photograph, 2007

I wish you all the very best
For a year rich in culture and celebration!

In the current context
Culture is more than ever a hand extended to peace
Not a refuge or a hobby
But a remedy for the wounds of so many lives and hopes

Culture teaches us to love
It brings our vision of the world closer to those of others
Culture is its own end
As creation is to life

Culture is an ode to empathy
It is the nuance missing from emoticons
and the irrational invective that swarms
on social networks

Culture teaches us to look, to listen, to feel
But also to let ourselves be surprised, baffled and shaken up
To heighten our perception
And marvel at the ever-renewed beauty of the world

Culture teaches us to think better
To recognize that we can doubt or make mistakes
And that others may be right
That our opinions and judgments must never become rooted

Culture is the heel of democracy
It helps us fight censorship
Soften our pride to transcend divisions
It is an opportunity for transformation and the future

Democracy is not the right to vote
It is the freedom of culture
Building unity through diversity
Against all extremisms that are antithetical to solidarity

Let’s celebrate diversity more than ever!
It’s our strength, our wealth and our only hope
Against all the temptations of mistrust, division and hatred
cultivated by the far right to gain power


Let’s remember the mandate of the military Bolsonaro in Brazil
-Supported by Marine Le Pen –
The Ministry of Culture has been abolished
The rich have received more aid
Poverty has increased with the abolition of welfare benefits
And environmental destruction
Insecurity has remained high
Due to growing inequality
Liberalization of arms sales
its attacks on the justice system
Rising corruption
As well as the decomplexification of reactionary actions and words
Racist, sexist, homophobic, climate-skeptic, conspiracy theorists…


Year of the Olympic Games and European elections
Let’s celebrate 2024 with our filiations and our differences
With more equality and respect between sexes, genders, French citizens and foreigners
With more generosity, reconciliation and savoir-être
With more tenderness and care for nature
With more exhibitions, readings, encounters…
and shared joy!


FROZEN LANDSCAPES
ABBEY MUSEUM, SAINT-CLAUDE

From December 23, 2023 to May 19, 2024
Exhibition curators : Amélie Lavin, Valérie Pugin et Corsin Vogel
Group exhibiton with Martine Aballea, Jules Bastien-Lepage, Cécile Beau, Hélène Bellenger, Alain Bernardini, Julien Discrit, Nicolas Faure, Thomas Flechtner, Marina Gadonneix, Jean-Philippe George, Gabriela Gerber et Lukas Bardill, Giovanni Giacometti, Michel Grillet, Claude Hugard de La Tour, Boris Jollivet, Jean-Antoine Linck, Jean Messagier, Alexis Noël, Laurent Pernot, Elodie Pong, Pierre Prins, Bernard Quesniaux, Anna Katharina Scheidegger, Julies Spinatchs, Bertrand Stofleth, Tairraz, Nathalie Talec, Alexia Turlin, Corsin Vogel, Hannes Vogel, Clarence Hudson White, Guy Zahler, Rémy Zaugg.

Frozen Landscapes brings together a selection of works from different periods and artistic currents, with the fascinating common theme of the winter landscape. Often perceived as an immobile, silent space frozen in time awaiting the thaw, it has been the subject of numerous projections and reveries by artists over the centuries. The mountain and the glacier have been the most frequent motifs and incarnations, giving form to representations that are sometimes idealized or fantasized. Frost and snowy white can be associated with silence and opacity, but also with mystery, sometimes reassuring, sometimes imposing, sometimes frightening.

THE LATEST ACQUISITIONS
From October 13, 2023 to February 4, 2024
Group exhibition
MUSÉE DU PAVILLON VENDÔME, Aix-en-Provence

For several years now, the Musée du Pavillon de Vendôme has been building up a collection of contemporary works, all of which are related to the collections, history and architecture of the site. Support for creation and artists is paramount, and the majority of acquisitions are made from artists who have exhibited within its walls and come from our region. In this way, we will be able to rediscover the artists who have worked in the various salons of the Pavillon de Vendôme, some of whose works will resonate with the museum’s older works.
With Carolle Bénitah, Eric Bourret, Clémentine Carsberg, Dominique Castell, Karine Debouzie, Marie Ducaté, Nadine Lahoz-Quilez, Frédérique Nalbandian, Laurent Pernot…


WHAT PLANTS SAY
From October 7, 2023 to January 17, 2024
Group exhibition
LE GRENIER A SEL, Avignon

What do plants have to say to us, and what do they inspire artists, at a time of climate change, major agricultural challenges and an increasingly virtual or artificial nature that requires us to rethink our fundamental relationship with it? Le Grenier à sel presents the first part of its exhibition cycle entitled “Symptômes du vivant” (2023-2025).
13 artists are invited to share their views on plants. From the praise of beauty and the celebration of life, to the desire to preserve biodiversity in the face of the alteration of ecosystems, “Ce que disent les plantes” (What plants say) invites us to delve into the heart of a non-human society, and to open up to the diversity of artistic approaches. Casting a sensitive light on current concerns, they all invite us to shed our age-old anthropocentric vision and reconnect with nature.

WE ARE MISERABLE, BUT LOVE, SUDDENLY, SAVES US
Solo exhibition
From September 10 to October 8, 2022
Marguo Gallery, Paris

Galerie Marguo is very pleased to present We are miserable, but love, suddenly, saves us, an exhibition of new paintings and text-based works by Laurent Pernot, on view from 10 September – 8 October 2022.
The Romantic poets sought to articulate the monumentality of nature and historical time through the subjectivities of the individual, experienced via minute impressions and emotions that shape the human condition and our experience of this world. Pernot’s work echoes the Romantic impulse to synthesize the ordinary and sublime through lyricism and metaphor.

UN MUSÉE A SOI
MRAC Sérignan | Musée Régional d’Art Contemporain
From October 15, 2022, to march 19, 2023

Curated by : Elisabeth Camilleri, Dominique Cros, Sonia Debeuré-Provost, Maxime Husson, Matthieu Supernant, Nathalie Tersier and Nicole Vidal
Under the artistic direction of Mathilde Monnier
Scenography : Dominique Figarella

This is an unusual approach for a museum: entrusting a choreographer and a group of patients from the Béziers day hospital, the Art. 27 group, with the task of imagining an exhibition based on the museum’s collections. The relevance lies in the challenge of assigning artistic responsibility to a group of enlightened amateurs, but also to a group of people who are often invisible in society. This project answers the question: how to invent and live an intimate, personal and perhaps secret link with exposed works, how to expose oneself while exposing. Mathilde Monnier

With Farah ATASSI, Per BARCLAY, Neïl BELOUFA, Nadia BENBOUTA, Karina BISCH, Io BURGARD, Armelle CARON, Eléonore FALSE, Julien GARNIER, Ann Veronica JANSSENS, Stéphane MAGNIN, Olivier MOSSET, Stéphane PENCRÉAC’H, Laurent PERNOT, Maxime ROSSI, Chéri SAMBA, Gérard TRAQUANDI, Francisco TROPA, Raphaël ZARKA, TURSIC Ida & MILLE Wilfried, JUGNET+CLAIRET, Cindy COUTANT

CHÂTEAU DU RIVAU, Lémeré


Laurent Pernot joins Marguo Gallery, co-founded by Vanessa Guo, formerly Director of Hauser & Wirth’s activity in Asia, and Paris art dealer, Jean-Mathieu Martini, opened in October 2020. The program at Galerie Marguo focuses on emerging artists from around the globe with a strong Franco-Chinese element, stemming from Guo’s experience building artist relationships in Asia and a desire to provide greater visibility to Asian artists in Europe. Exhibitions are presented in a refurbished historical military complex on Rue des Minimes in the heart of the Marais district. Sited inside of a beautiful courtyard, Galerie Marguo is in close proximity to The Centre Pompidou and other international galleries in an area known as the center of Parisian arts and culture.
