from 21 June 2019 to 5 January 2020
The first major French exhibition devoted to Fabienne Verdier’s work takes place at the Musée Granet in Aix-en-Provence after the retrospective at Hong Kong City Hall in May 2014. She’s a major contemporary artist whose career has always seen her venture off the beaten track to bring us art imbued with sensitivity and strength, contradictions and unity. Monumental paintings of Sainte-Victoire, preparatory drawings, beautiful gouaches show us a Sainte-Victoire always reinvented by the greatest artists. This is more than a retrospective this is a showcase for the bonds between calligraphy, painting, music, movement, gesture, body and the relationship with Sainte-Victoire Mountain in a presentation of fifty-odd large pieces that act as thought-provoking analogical footnotes.
Fabienne Verdier’s work is a journey that allows visitors to renew their relationship with the landscape, with the mountains of the mind.
