Ugo Arsac • Yann Bagot • Bastien Faudon • Emmanuel Henninger
How would we look at Mount Sainte-Victoire today if Cézanne had not painted it?
painted it? Or rather if he had not invented the landscape?
For centuries, artists have been forging our gaze and still testify today to the importance of this genre in the perception of our environment.
The four artists gathered at the Galerie Robet-Dantec in the exhibition “Points of View” confirm this idea. Four aesthetic “Points of View” to be discovered in Belfort from January 28!
Ugo Arsac lives and works in Marseille. He is a graduate of the Beaux-Arts de Paris and the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. He studied for a year at the University of the Arts in Taiwan and finished his training at Le Fresnoy, the National Studio of Contemporary Arts in 2020.
Over time, the vision of the landscape has greatly evolved, particularly with regard to new digital technologies, and it is through the virtual reality drawing “In Urbe” that Ugo Arsac gives us a concrete example. The work, co-produced by Le Fresnoy, Studio national des arts contemporains, is indeed a 3D drawing of the underground of Paris. An underground landscape, hidden, with its “valleys”, its “hills”, its “caves”. A body teeming with life with its own organs that are just waiting for the spectators to explore.
Living in the Fontainebleau region, Yann Bagot graduated in 2008 from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.
Creating in the landscape is the credo of the artist Yann Bagot. Whether he is drawing with Indian ink the forest of Hartmannswillerkopf, in the Haut-Rhin, or the rocks of the Côte de Granit Rose in the Côte d’Armor, his large sheets of paper keep the trace of the elements, such as rain or sea salt, as if the landscape literally invited itself on the paper. He is like an explorer, constantly seeking to “be one with the place” and to live the “intensity of the moment”.
Lives and works in Provence, Bastien Faudon graduated from the Ecole supérieure d’Art d’Avignon in 2017.
“Bastien Faudon maintains a singular and multiple relationship with drawing, which he uses as his preferred medium. Drawings of scientific researchers, preparatory drawings, cartographies intended for travel or exploration take part in devices that question the very nature of documents and the status of drawing in the exhibition space […]. Inspired by the construction of animal documentaries that he hijacks, he makes science and art coexist to question the relationship we have with the environment, constantly moving from the infinitely large to the infinitely small and thus questioning the place of man and his representation.” Stéphane Ibars
Lives and works in Mulhouse, Emmanuel Henninger graduated in 2004 with a master’s degree in Visual Arts from the University of Strasbourg and went on to complete a master’s degree in law and social sciences at the University of Haute-Alsace in Mulhouse, from which he graduated in 2007.
For Emmanuel Henninger, drawing the landscape is a form of commitment. He will present a large polyptych: the landscape of an open-cast coal mine located in Germany in which he has hollowed out the elements built by Man. An undressed landscape in short, laid bare, with gaping scars.
