SKETCH, Bogota (CO), November 23 - February 15, 2018
Solo show Julien Creuzet
Curated by Aurélie Vandewynckele
French Caribbean artist Julien Creuzet presents Mañana Vapor, his first solo show in Colombia at SKETCH. He composes an intuitive and fertile encounter, composed by poems, installations and visual and sound assemblages. Fragments of poems and photographs are superimposed and printed on to polished surfaces, feverishly wanting to escape from the video that contains them and whisper magic stories into your ears. From his collages he creates powerful visual narratives, erasing the borders between documentary, fantasy and reality; a reverse that lets us go beyond the thinkable, between the occult and the visible. Through his hybrid works Julien Creuzet recovers objects and myths that history has, to date, left aside to make its own agenda prevail. Then and only then Julien Creuzet stories reveal themselves as possible: they shine in silence waiting for our hands to embrace them.
Julien Creuzet lives and works in Paris. He has participated in numerous solo shows including, Fondation Ricard and Béton Salon, Paris (2018), DOCUMENT, Chicago (2017), Galerie Doyang Lee, Paris (2016), National Superior School of Art and Design, Nancy, France (2016). He participated recently at The Lyon Biennial and Hors Piste Festival at the Pompidou Center, Paris (2017), No. XII Contemporary Art Biennial, Dakar, Senegal (2016), II Kampala Art Biennial, Uganda (2016 and the 30th International Artists Studio Program Exhibition at the Regional Fonds of Contemporary Art of Pays de la Loire, France (2016) amongst others.
