Closed for:Canceled or closed because of Covid-19

Deux artistes, Suzanne Hetzel et Didier Petit, posent leurs regards sur les collections, visibles, invisibles, cachées, en réserve, afin de leur donner vie à travers leurs photographies, mise en espace et découpages.

Le travail artistique de Suzanne Hetzel est construit à partir d'observations, de rencontres et de récits tout comme d'objets trouvés ou collectés. Elle prend des photographies pour parler d'un monde à découvrir qui chemine dans le temps et en retient la mémoire. Par l'image fixe, Suzanne Hetzel fait émerger des relations entre les êtres, les choses et le temps

Didier Petit privilégie le dessin depuis de nombreuses années, cherchant à travers cette pratique à lui instaurer un statut différent et varié. Depuis 2006, il travaille des papiers découpés, de grandes tailles, qui, inscrits sur les lieux, permettent, par transparence, de jouer de l’ombre et de la lumière, révélant par là toute l’écriture architecturale du lieu d’exposition.

De l’ombre à la lumière, jeux d’ombres et de lumières... la collection de lanternes et les diverses tentures de cuir du musée du Vieil Aix sous les feux de la rampe !

La lumière et les objets qui la produisent, reçoivent ou incarnent, sont le fil rouge de mes installations spécialement conçues pour l’exposition au musée du Vieil Aix.

Tout part d’une importante collection de lanternes, de lampadaires et divers objets d’éclairage dans les réserves du musée. Au moyen de photographies, d’objets et d’installations lumineuses, mon travail souhaite incarner ce désir de lumière, cette quête d’une lumière latente au cœur des objets et des choses, que j’emprunte en grande partie à la collection du musée. Un nouvel agencement d’objets et de lumière pourrait bien nous mettre face à des nouvelles histoires.

Visites commentées deux mercredis par mois à 15h (réservation au 04 42 91 89 78 / ripollc@mairie-aixenprovence.fr.)
