Katerina Jebb - Deus ex machina

Arles - Musee Reattu - Exhibition - FROM 2 July to 1 January

Since Jacques Réattu, the Grand Priory is home to its rampart reassuring the work of artists conquered and fascinated by the force of the spirit of places still alive. Katerina Jebb did not depart from the attraction of the place, crossing the threshold of this territory, it entered the universe Réattu driven by Christian Lacroix in 2008. The sensuality of textiles, materials and colours there was blooming beautifully orchestrated by the Arles couturier who had invested his creative universe all of the showrooms.Subsequently, the works of Katerina Jebb continued to take meaning to the Museum, through including a spectacular series of eight photographs entitled Untitled Icon - 1 to 8. She declines the singular aesthetics of plastic research textiles and body mingling component of mysterious floating idols dressed in dresses of Christian Lacroix.The exclusive use of a digital scanner hijacks an industrial reproduction tool and imposes images now freed of one of the most important conquests of art: perspective. In the work of Katerina Jebb, the idea of reproduction in three dimensions will disappear in favour of a hyperrealism of materials and of the flesh. Furthermore, the interest of the artist for the relics of history through topics such as handwritten letters from Marie-antoinette or jacket Napoleon meet the historical places and collections. This obsessive search for the traces of man applies with the same relevance to the remains of workshops by artists such as Picabia, Duchamp and Balthus. His approach to the present is revealed in portraits but also in videos where Katerina Jebb staged, such goddesses, the contemporary of a pantheon become people heroines: Tilda Swinton, Isabelle Huppert, Kristin Scott-thomas, Kate Moss, Kylie Minogue, yet Setsuko Klossowska de Rola, the wife of the painter Balthus.It is the first project of monographic exhibition dedicated to the artist in a museum. The title, deus ex machina, evokes the magic of works born of the cold light of a machine to whom Katerina Jebb grants the almost divine power of plastic creation.
