Avec la participation exceptionnelle de
Ernest Pignon-Ernest

CETTE EXPOSITION EST ÉVIDEMMENT ANNULÉE ET NORMALEMENT REPORTÉE EN AUTOMNE PROCHAIN

Avec la participation exceptionnelle de Ernest Pignon-Ernest, très connu pour son art engagé et si singulier. Il intervient dans le monde entier depuis 1966. Il appose ses sérigraphies sur les murs des cités. Après avoir étudié la ville ou l’espace dans lequel il souhaite intervenir, il révèle par ses dessins, des mémoires et des symboliques. Une quinzaine de livres retracent son travail. Ici, pour cette exposition à Bergerac, il a choisi de présenter quelques dessins et photographies sur Soweto, travail effectué en Afrique du Sud en 2002.

Également invitée de manière exceptionnelle, Elsa Lunghini, photographe, choisit de présenter quelques clichés pris au Maroc.
Connue depuis son enfance comme chanteuse et comédienne (cinéma, télévision et récemment au théâtre), elle mène aujourd’hui en parallèle une carrière de photographe.

Plusieurs artistes permanents de la galerie participent à cette exposition collective :
– Alfons Alt – Christine Bourcey – Didier Caudron – Jean-Pierre Dall’Anese – Catherine Dubon – Joanna Hair – Patrick Lainville – Sylvie Mazereau – Patrice Mesnier – Emmanuel Michel – Valem –

«  Terres d’Afrique », une exposition qui rend hommage, qui raconte des souvenirs, qui témoigne, qui découvre, qui capte !

Pour la première fois, une exposition à thème à Bergerac, où chacun présente un travail particulier évoquant un pays précis ou imaginaire.
Du témoignage à l’évocation, du petit au grand format, les œuvres se côtoieront dans un profond dépaysement.

VERNISSAGE : Jeudi 16 avril de 18h à 21h

Dégustation de vin : Château Vari – Bergerac – Sylvie et Yann Jestin

Présence musicale : Radostina Petkova – Concertiste internationale

Le soir du vernissage, nous aurons la chance d’être accompagnés musicalement au piano par la concertiste Radostina Petkova. Reconnue en Bulgarie, Italie, République Tchèque, Hongrie, Allemagne, France et Venezuela comme soliste de différents orchestres ou récitals, elle a vécu une dizaine d’années en Colombie, où elle a joué dans les plus importantes salles de ce pays.
Elle vit en France depuis quelques années. C’est un immense plaisir de l’accueillir !

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.”
