In ’93 he made portraits of Japanese designers, shown as a one man exhibition at the Frankfurt Trade Show Center.

  • Jérémie Paul

    Jérémie Paul

    Paris, France, b. 1983
    Jérémie Paul was born in Guadeloupe in 1983. He lives in both the West Indies and Europe. He is a multidisciplinary artist fluctuating between painting and installation. He studied at Villa Arson (where he gained his DNSEP in 2009). His career began when he returned to Guadeloupe (2009). He produced an exhibition, ‘Herrellà,’ with the Regional Council of Guadeloupe presenting his pictorial art. The following year he exhibited a sound installation at Artchipel Guadeloupe scène Nationale, revealing the acoustic side to his installation work. After bringing his first projects to fruition in Guadeloupe, he chose to return to Europe. He developed his painting technique for three years in Leipzig before moving to Paris. Invited in 2016 to participate in the exhibition La redite en somme, ne s’amuse pas de sa répétition singulière at the Palais de Tokyo with Sara Favriau curating (winner of the Friends of the Palais de Tokyo Prix Découverte).Between pop art and surrealism, Jérémie Paul presents a world exhibiting a “figure”. A figure in terms of entity, tinged with territoriality, and moved by feelings. His vision is to combine his pretexts (reasons, triggers, needs) and to take them to their limits. These limits encompass his apprehension of genres, concepts and emotions. To gear pieces (paintings, sculptures, installations, costumes, videos…) towards “a maximum of conceivable possibilities” (Édouard Glissant), as a way of opening up to a world generating myth and poetics, in action; action like believing in one’s identity, ideas and dreams.

  • Wolfgang Paalen

    Wolfgang Paalen

    Baden, Suiza, b. 1905
    Wolfgang Paalen era el primogénito del comerciante judío austríaco e inventor Gustav Robert Paalen, y su esposa alemana, la actriz Clothilde Emilie Gunkel. Los primeros años de su vida los pasó entre Viena y Styie donde su padre tenía un centro de salud de moda. En 1912 la familia se trasladó a Berlín y a la ciudad Silesia de Zagan, donde su padre había adquirido un castillo, el St. Rochusburg. Wolfgang Paalen estudió en diversas escuelas de Sagan, antes de que sus padres contrataran a un preceptor particular. En 1919 la familia se trasladó a Roma, donde los Paalens recibían a muchos invitados, tales como Leo von König quien se convirtió en el primer maestro de Wolfgang. En 1924 regresó a Berlín donde intentó sin éxito ingresar en la Academia. En 1925 expuso en la Secesión de Berlín y profundizó en su formación estética, influido hondamente por Julius Meier-Graefe, Nietzsche, Schopenhauer y la teoría de la Gestalt de Max Wertheimer. Después de otro año de estudios en París y Cassis (1925/26) donde conoció a Jean (Janco) Varda y Georges Braque, visitó la escuela de arte de Hans Hofmann en Múnich y Saint-Tropez hasta 1928. Después de 1928 estuvo de nuevo en Cassis y París, estudiando brevemente con Fernand Léger. De 1931 a 1936, Wolfgang Paalen participó activamente en la asociación Abstracción-Creación dedicada al arte abstracto junto, entre otros, al pintor suizo Kurt Seligmann («Personajes en una gruta», 1933). Después de sus primeras exposiciones den la Galería Vignon, luego la Galería Pierre, en París, se incorporó al grupo surrealista parisino formado alrededor de André Breton en 1936, participando en todas sus principales exposiciones. «Me parecía dejar un ambiente de sordomudos, para encontrarme finalmente con hombres enteros. Solamente dentro del surrealismo encontré la experiencia entera vivida, el heroico intento de una síntesis integral que no admitía más separaciones arbitrarias entre la expresión plástica y la poesía, entre la poesía y la vida». Hacia 1937, Wolfgang Paalen inventó la técnica del «ahumado» (fumage) que, a partir de los rastros de humo producido por la llama de una vela sobre la superficie de una hoja de papel o de una tela con pintura aún fresca, permite la interpretación, o la sugestión, de tantas imágenes involuntarias, de un modelado vibrante y de un negro aterciopelado. Con este médoto, Paalen realizó sus cuadros más espectaculares: «Paisaje médusé » (1938), «Combates de los príncipes saturnianos, III » (1939). André Breton vio en estas «figuras desmesuradas de un teatro de sombras, [los] rizos de la mujer amada hasta perderse de vista en las tinieblas… ». Viajó a Nueva York en mayo de 1939. En otoño del mismo año, a raíz de una invitación de Frida Kahlo, se refugió en México. Con el pintor César Moro, organizó la primera exposición internacional del surrealismo en México (1940), luego fundó con Gordon Onslow-Ford la revista «Dyn» (1941). Con el texto «Adiós al surrealismo» se distanció de Breton (1942), con el que no se reconcilió hasta 1951, en una visita a París. Se nacionalizó mexicano en el año 1947. Ese mismo año se divorció de la artista Alice Rahon. Wolfgang Paalen se suicidó en 1959.
