Private View: Thursday 4th June 2009 from 6pm 05th – 6th July 2009 Pure Evil Gallery : 108 Leonard Street, EC2A 4RH www.gallerynosco.com JE T’AIME – an exciting exhibition of important new works from five emerging French artists; Dran, Bom.K, Remy Uno, Jaw and Heng.
Using a mixture of sculpture, installation, painting and drawings, the artists transform the gallery and engage with the viewer in an interactive assault on the senses. They flirt with political satire, they juxtapose delicately intricate yet disturbingly graphic pornography, in essence they succeed in roughly seducing the viewer with their vision of an increasing darkly humorous reality.
In contrast with the typical politically based critique of contemporary arts engagement, JE T’AIME launches a sophisticated attack from a refined angle; its soft yet forceful blows resonating it’s relentless message, engaging the audience by playing with a mixture of media to create a full on sensual experience and other world.
The National Gallery has announced that its first-ever Pay What You Wish scheme, launched as a response to the cost-of-living crisis, will continue as part of its major autumn exhibition The Credit Suisse Exhibition: Frans Hals
