Residence at Collection Lambert

In July 2021, Silvère Jarrosson was again in residence at Collection Lambert at Avignon, as part of the Direction régionale des affaires culturelles’s programme ouvrir le monde.

‘The Yan Peu Tigres et vautours (Tigers and Vultures) exhibition shown at Collection Lambert during my residency taught me a great deal, as I explore the potential opened by oil painting and large formats.

‘While acrylic paint is well-suited to the draped effects on which I have been working in recent months, oil often takes the appearance of smoke, dislocating into the infinitesimal textures I have been nursing during this residence.

‘Abstract utopias are born out of these incandescent landscapes, allowing me to move forward with my work on setting media in motion, with all the resulting consequences.’
