ZONAMACO MÉXICO ARTE CONTEMPORÁNE O7-11 FEBRUARY 2018 Fifteenth edition with the presence of Galerie du Palace


“Frontiera hipnótica de la conciencia” (English presentation)

Serge Plantureux presents three young French artists under the age of thirty, who articulate their reflection around hypnosis guiding to the border of consciousness, aiming to modify time and space perception. This is a resolutely contemporary notion. Our post-truth era reveals a multitude of fields in which, trough creation, imaginary and reality are mixed-up. To such a point further than what is “possible” or “improbable”, opening perspectives on bottomless chasms.

Lyes Hammadouche questions the limits and boundaries of time contemplation trough moving mirrors filled with universes, guiding the gaze to an altered state of consciousness.

Théophile Bouchet draws bodies flirting with waves, floating on the surface of awareness. The eyes are invited towards optical boundaries.

Colin Lusinchi realizes Martian surface samples from possible coring for mining and colonization without limits. These Martian cores testify to the impacts of meteorites and invite the passerby to the cosmic journey,

A seismograph records the vibrations of the space trough the living presence of visitors.

PWT 33-2017 They Shoot Horses, Don’t They


Pendant le terrible hiver du Siège de Paris 1870-1871, les autorités distribuèrent la viande de 65.000 chevaux.

Dans Choses vues, Victor Hugo note : “Ce n’est même plus du cheval que nous mangeons. C’est peut-être du chien ? C’est peut-être du rat ? Je commence à avoir des maux d’estomac. Nous mangeons de l’inconnu” (30 décembre 1870).

29.06.2017 Thursday 29 June. PWT 26-2017 Moscow in the Time of Alexandre Dumas & Theophile Gautier (For the pleasure of 2017 Kolomna symposium attendees)

As Theophile Gautier told, Moscow was then “a total surprise for visitors, painters or daguerrerian artists had produced scarce images”. Ferdinand Bureau deserves a special attention, his photographs are among the very first representations of Moscow, only a few years after Roger Fenton’s.

We still do not know if Ferdinand Bureau (1813-1893) is a relative of the French Bureau family of photographers: Stanislas Victor Bureau (1806-1888), Victor Stanislas Bureau (1833-unkn.), Palmyre Stanislas dit Léon Bureau (1838-unkn.), Jean-Albert Dumaine. A fashionable newspaper relates that Ferdinand angaged and married in Moscow Xaverine-Henriette-Octavie, daughter of colonel St-Sclair, of Scottish origin).
