A place to go (to)

Edinburgh Art Festival Exhibition du 4 août au 9 octobre. e-flux recommande l’exposition d’Ingrid Calame, à The Fruitmarket Gallery. Jamais entendu parler de cette artiste aux dreadlocks, le process est assez terre à terre, ground art, et obligatoirement workshop style :

«Calame’s paintings and drawings all begin with Calame tracing marks, stains and cracks on the ground. She then combines, layers and retraces the tracings before transforming them into drawings in coloured pencil or pure pigment and paintings in enamel or, more recently, oil paint. The works that result from this singular process are beautiful and intelligent abstractions. Displayed in a gallery, they retain their connection with the world outside at several removes, exerting an oddly insistent presence.»

mais le résultat abstract color field pas mal.
