Exhibition opening | Roxane Borujerdi

May 28th, 2015                                        6pm until 9pm

Roxane Borujerdi was born in 1981 in Paris, France; she lives and works in Paris  (F) and Rome (IT).

Roxane Borujerdi explores the ways in which elementary shapes disseminate in different environments. This interest leads her to manipulate various media.

Here, the video picks up an urban architectural element, only to flatten it out as in a painting. There, the floating geometries of an abstract drawing swell through a cardboard sculpture conceived as its excrescence. One same shape goes through a series of twists and turns. Each of its occurrences presents a different aspect, a little something that makes it in turn plain or sparkling, imposing or fragile, enigmatic or precise.

The calculation of formal equivalences thus integrates the artist’s intuition, without ever minimizing it. This interference produces a recognizable blend, mixing restraint and whim in an ever unstable and moving equilibrium. (Pierre Thévenin)
