It's time to fly away to the sensitive art of Chourouk Hriech! In this second exhibition at the Anne-Sarah Bénichou gallery, the French artist continues his exploration of drawing and returns to a motif that is dear to him, that of the bird. Poetic and political manifestos, they are myriads to take flight in her drawings. In Indian ink, the birds are almost an extension of the kimono, in Japanese atmospheres that inscribe them in a historical continuity. In gouache, taken from the 1827 inventory of the ornithologist John James Audubon, they live in front of modern and rough architecture and lead us to question the loss of sense of nature in our contemporary societies. In watercolour and coloured pencil, where Hriech usually works in black and white, majestic colourful birds are painted to express a real urgency in the face of the disappearance of species. The exhibition unfolds like a stroll, as they take flight and the accompanying text by Matthieu Leliève pays tribute to Hriech's poetry and ecological mobilization.
