ParisAdèle Gratacos: Est-ce si épuisant de scruter l'invisible ? (Cartographie plurielle d'un visage)
This immersive exhibition, specially designed for the MEP by Adèle Gratacos, reveals a powerful universe at the crossroads of different disciplines.
The entire course offers both visual and audible experience and reveals the artist’s approach of questioning. On the walls of the Studio are notebooks, which form a cartography of the artist’s reflections and universe, and emphasize the importance of the research phase.
Adèle Gratacos draws clarity in all that is most universal – science, art, poetry, memory … Her artistic approach is marked by the multidisciplinary and collaborations with personalities from horizons various.
She often uses the citation, both visual and literary, and regularly confronts her photographs with images of all times, including religious painting.
The different fields invested by the artist – photography, text, film, sculpture and installation – are all ways to explore our way of being in the world and to meet the eye.
With this exhibition, the MEP continues its commitment to discover young artists, and specifically creators who open their practice to many different mediums and fields. An artist with a protean approach, Adèle Gratacos trained at the National School of Visual Arts in La Cambre, Belgium, where she studied both video and sculpture.
