Exhibition at Le Portique
From May 27 to October 8, 2017, Le Portique will host a show featuring three artists: Julien Berthier, Vincent Ganivet and Stéphane Thidet. They have in common to be as much at ease intervening in the public space as displaying their works in art venues. The three of them have a knack for finding new uses for materials, to create powerful poetic and architectural works of art.
For A Summer in Le Havre they will cast their works around the city as well as in contemporary art center Le Portique. The show will be an opportunity to better know their work and to discover their in situ pieces which promise a lively and inventive dialogue with the venue’s volumes. Construction systems and ladders for Vincent Ganivet, piles of confetti for Stéphane Thidet, and absurd, biting humor from Vincent Berthier… Playing with shapes and scales, these artistic interventions promise to challenge our perception and relation to the daily life.
