It is more beautiful to light than to shine only

Start

Can originality, imagination, poetry be taught? How does transmission take place, particularly in the artistic field, which is the very expression of a singularity? Is teaching only the learning of a technique? What is the role of the teacher in this very personal quest? To answer these questions, the Collège des Bernardins, in partnership with the Beaux-Arts de Paris, invites three artists to question the notion of transmission around an exhibition, from 9 October to 14 December 2019.

The etymology of "transmission" is a journey, a crossing, a passage... The exhibition " It is more beautiful to light than to shine only "* decides in turn to explore this ancestral link between master and pupil, which is being told for the first time in the present, with a trio of contemporary artists through a selection of works created for the occasion.

With this exhibition, the challenge is to question the imperceptible, even invisible, traces of the notion of transmission, seen as a crossing, a passage, a learning process and not an end in itself. By breaking with the classical and sometimes archaic vision of the traditionally inculcated master/student relationship, the exhibition renews it completely: it is less a question of a frontality than of a balance of differences, a triangularity between three artistic propositions, which dialogue with each other.

1 teacher, 2 students, 3 artists

Anne Rochette, professor at the École nationale supérieure des Beaux- Arts in Paris, is exhibiting alongside Gwendoline Perrigueux and Cyril Zarcone, two of her former students who have become artists of the contemporary scene and are now represented by the Eric Mouchet gallery. The exhibition offers, through a selection of works created for the occasion, an original dialogue between the teacher and the two young artists.
The three artists who express themselves here have the notion of space and volume as a common denominator. Sculptures in height, on the ground, vertical or horizontal, installations in metal, wood, or earthenware tiles will take place under the historical vaults of the former sacristy.

Anne Rochette is a graduate of the Beaux-Arts de Paris (1979), and of New York University (Master of Arts, 1982). She has taught sculpture in various forms in several American schools and universities: Studio School and Parsons School of Design (New York), Tyler College of Art (Philadelphia), Rhode Island School of Design (Providence).
She has produced several works in the public space, including " Rhyme ", the children's vegetable garden in the Tuileries Gardens. She has been in charge of a sculpture workshop (and much more...) at the Beaux-Arts de Paris since 1993. She has been teaching at the Beaux-Arts de Paris since 1993.

Through her work, she seeks to give shape to images or bodily or mental sensations. The sculptures she creates, whether abstract or figurative, are "embodied", as if they were haunted by an organic energy. She works the material through traditional sculpture techniques (modelling, moulding or ceramics) or hybridised with domestic or craft techniques (sewing, carpentry, DIY).

Gwendoline Perrigueux obtains his DNSEP from the Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2013. She founds the CHEZKIT workshop with Cyril Zarcone and Coline Cuni. The exhibition Velvet Lashes was her first solo exhibition in 2019 at the Galerie Eric Mouchet which represents her today.

She plays with contrasts: she interweaves materials that are foreign to each other, materials that have never before met each other, and invents forms capable of accommodating the density of the whole other. From each object emerges the impression of a surgical cut, of a perfect dissection of the staged materials. It is by looking more closely that the organic reminds us, that the body, ours or that of others, is drawn in hollow.

Cyril Zarcone obtained his DNAP at the Ecole Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Marseille (2011), and graduated from the Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2013. After several group exhibitions, he had his first solo exhibition in 2016, re/productionstakes place at the Galerie Eric Mouchet: the catalogue wins the FILAF 2017 / Galeristes 2017 prize for the best art book published by a gallery.

His works are shown at international fairs (Paris, Basel), Helical flightThe "40mcube" in Rennes, France, is acquired by "40mcube" for its sculpture park. Concentrating on decorative elements that integrate facades, exterior cladding and their constructions, his work focuses on the reuse of objects of romantic inspiration or "à l'antique" produced industrially. By reusing these forms, reproducing them again with casting techniques far from commercial reproducibility, he approaches serial and decorative reproduction in a new way. His next personal exhibition, Garden sidewill take place at the Galerie Eric Mouchet in October 2019.

Sophie Monjaret was born in Paris in 1987. She followed an apprenticeship in the studio of the photographer Patrick Tosani at the Beaux-Arts de Paris where she entered in 2006 and graduated in November 2011.
Photographic artist and curator, she often works in collaboration with artists and places, in search of a united creation. These new encounters inspire her and allow her to discover new perspectives.
