In February 2020, Silvère Jarrosson was in residence at Collection Lambert in Avignon, as part of a teaching experiment with children. The projects aims at drawing the children’s attention to the connections between dance and painting, and between painting and dance. The ambition is to explore the abstract expression potential unleashed by this movement back and forth from painting to dance and back again, and to provide support for the children’s choregraphic and pictorial work.
In front of the work at collection Lambert, each participant is encouraged to move, dance and reflect on the different ways of physically expressing an artwork in a barrier-free artistic environment. At the second stage, each child creates a work or work series based on his own original movement, explores its potential and ways to express it as a painting. The intention is to support the children as they transition from movement considered as mere corporal expression to movement as a means of expression when painting.
The project’s artistic and educational challenge is to stay accessible and understandable for the children, while also providing a channel for spontaneous and enthusiastic expression. The results showed quite unambiguously that the children had fully mastered these concepts.
One hour away from Copenhagen, Lys Over Lolland has become, over its nineteen years of existence, a staple feature of the Danish art scene. In 2019, France was the guest of honor, with an exceptional presentation of tapestries from Mobilier national’s Manufacture des Gobelins, never shown before in Denmark, directed by Gilles Bonnevialle, Marie Hélène Bersani and Susanne Grue Jorgensen. The only French artist displayed next to the State collection tapestries, Silvère Jarrosson, was allotted a dedicated space in the former factory hosting the exhibition.
Unlike the previous installations of the work (especially at Riga Fine Arts Academy), the set for this monumental piece was arranged in separate lots, in contrast with the initial frieze layout, offering a fresh interpretation avenue for this multifaceted work.
Over seven thousand visitors from all over Denmark came to discover this selection of pieces from Paris.
Following the Riga Fine Arts Academy and Liepaja Concert Hall, the L.U.C.A. monumental work by Silvère Jarrosson was exhibited at Madona’s City Arts Museum, as part of a monographic exhibition in a partnership with Institut français de Lettonie. A public performance took place at the opening.
The work will be included in the Museum’s collection, following a decision by its director.
