Michael Horsky – Sphaera Superiora
27. 09. – 03. 11. 2018
Ausdrucksmittel von Michael Horsky ist die Malerei in intensiver Form und Farbe. Seine Tafelbilder strukturieren sich durch den mehrmaligen Prozess im Auslöschen und Wiederfinden herausgelöster figürlicher Elemente.

Eine Inszenierung von Form und Farbe, ein streng geregeltes Spiel von Bedeutung und Betörung …… Reine Malerei.

Ein Objekt filtert sich aus unzähligen vorangegangenen heraus und setzt in der Abfolge seelische Schwingungen frei.

YVES HAYAT
QUID NOVI ?
15. SEPTEMBER – 15. NOVEMBER 2018

Contemporary art is coming to the city of Grasse and what better setting than the Cathedral of Notre-Dame du Puy to host the new exhibition by Yves HAYAT?
Following the acclaimed « Perfume, that obscure object of desir » at the International Perfume Museum in autumn 2017, we are pleased to welcome him back to stage one of the most symbolic landmarks of the historic town.

With « Quid Novi? » he shakes up the classic codes to question poverty around the world and confronts us with existential questions, tears, bloodshed and the constant potential chaos in a disturbing and fascinating aesthetic.
Struck by dark thoughts but at the same time overwhelmed by the beauty of the forms, we are grateful to Yves HAYAT for revealing so well all the complexity of our human condition.

YVES HAYAT EXHIBITION
QUID NOVI ?
What’s new ?

I admit my interest in manipulating reality and its imaginary images. In the
end, it’s always the artist’s vision on its time that matters. The new technologies
offer a new way to look at our reality, allowing the unreal to look real
and reality unreal. The computer’s memory and the reproduction technologies
have not only provided an unbelievable freedom to the artistic disciplines but
also changed the essence of reality, questioning the idea of « déjà-vu ».
My artistic work results from my life story (Judaism, uprooting), my classic arts
training (Fine arts school), our overwhelming media culture (news channels
and social media) and my professional life (advertising creation).
The subject of « Quid novi? » (« What’s new? » in latin) questions the situation
of the oppressed throughout the history of its representation. Christianity
preaches a God who wanted to share in his flesh the pain of all humanity.
A God made man to experience torment, abandonment and solitude. My
images generated from the current news overprinted on his broken body are
making the daily martyr of humanity more concret and visible. The timeless and
universal image of the Christ, overwhelmed and reinforced by reality, provide
a sacred significance and a universal level to the contemporary imagery.

Of course, religious iconography has already been diverted since the beginning
of the twentieth century to condemn violence, racism, sexual segregation…
but what matters to me is the matching of distinct times with
technics that question reality like the two faces of the coin: sacred/profane,
past/present, expression/repression, affect/intellect, I try to offer a different
vision on the doubts and fears of our world.

Yves Hayat
Yves Hayat by Francis Parent

(..) Hayat’s work is complex and uncompromising. It’s true, his
compositions of images, his arrangements of colors, and his (re)framing all
show a perfect mastery over digital manipulation and esthetics in general.
But beyond the quality of his images and his Artfulness is this: By using
the available technology of today, instead of the age old methods, his work
could have fallen into the trap of “l’in-sense’” (or senseless) where with
the right technology, meaning could be nonexistent. (The possibilities of
this new technology were first theorized in 1985 by J.F. Lyotard in “Les
immateriaux” and further developed by F. Popper in “Arts technologiques”.)
But instead of this, his work reaches deep into history and looks closely
at the present to be a springboard for our future. We can therefore count
on Hayat.
For even though he doesn’t make classical “pictures”, his remarkable work
will remain like a “painting” of our Society and our Times.
