 Une attention toute particulière est portée à la scénographie de cette exposition, enrichie d’un cartel pour chaque artiste et ponctuée de citations sur l’art et la sculpture. Chaque sculpture trouve sa place individuellement tout en valorisant l’ensemble de l’exposition, car toutes ces présences se font échos en milieu naturel.

Grâce au partenariat entre la Galerie Bénédicte Giniaux et le Château des Vigiers, le public est invité à découvrir cette exposition « Sculptures au Jardin » tous les jours de 10h à 21h, en accès libre. Exposition présentée sur les pelouses du Château des Vigiers.
Domaine du Château des Vigiers (Dordogne) Sur place : Golf – Hôtel **** – Centre de soins SPA – Restaurant gastronomique – Brasserie

De l’intimité des murs de la galerie vers l’ouverture ou l’amplitude d’un jardin, le public peut appréhender d’un regard plus lointain des œuvres intégrées dans la nature. De l’intérieur vers l’extérieur, du petit matin au crépuscule, les ombres et les silhouettes découpent chaque jour des présences singulières. B.G.

Communiqué de presse    Press back

Committed to living artists for more than 25 years, Bénédicte Giniaux started in the Oise and Paris regions before moving to Bergerac, Dordogne, where she opened her own art gallery in 2011.
In the heart of the historic centre of this charming city, the gallery presents the work of twenty permanent artists. The figurative art, which is here always customised and stylised, remains a priority, through various themes (the world of humans and animals, journeys, nudes, everyday life scenes and still-life paintings). Numerous abstract artworks are also on display.
In this art gallery, poetry, tenderness, humour and life stories are predominant. The artworks are signed by professional artists deeply committed to their work. Some of them even have a solid reputation abroad.
From small to large formats, the artworks are made of bronze, terra cotta, raku, iron, Corten steel, stainless steel, wood, glass fusion, etching, engraving, drawing, collage, watercolour, pastel, acrylic paint, oil paint, photography…

The gallery is run with passion by Bénédicte Giniaux. All her energy is dedicated to various artists, from France and abroad, with whom she chose to work and on long-term partnerships. They work hands-in-hands with a mutual confidence.
Throughout the year, various events give the gallery its tempo: solo or collective exhibitions, in situ with the permanent artists of the gallery, as well as outdoor exhibitions in partnership with important places, such as this summer exhibition at the Château des Vigiers.

“Over the past nine years, the Bénédicte Giniaux art gallery has been able to win over and retain an audience of amateurs and collectors from all over the region and passing through the Dordogne. The quality of the selected artworks, as well as the friendliness of the reception, undoubtedly make it one of the most important art galleries in Nouvelle-Aquitaine.” Florence Peyron

“I have always been working with artists from whom the sensibility and the creative techniques passionate me. I appreciate their investment, their commitment, their artistic search as well as the way they look at their own work. Some of them are present since the beginning of my activities, and when new artists fit in the gallery, my selection criterion are mainly linked with their professional background and I look for long-term partnerships.
All the sculptures and all the paintings are one-offs. Regarding the bronze sculptures, casted in limited edition and numbered, each one of them is called “Épreuve originale”. I never put on display artworks made from resin, neither for indoor nor outdoor.
All the artworks are technically mastered, and I always deliver a certificate of authenticity, alongside a text of introduction or a catalogue about the artist.”
