22 May → 30 Aug 2021

Cécile Bart is a visual artist with a singular practice. A true jack-of-all-trades, she produces paintings, installations and videos. What she likes to work on is the depth and surface of a space, its modulation by light, playing with its architecture and the place of the spectator. For her solo exhibition at the Marc Chagall Museum, she presents previously produced or unpublished works that dialogue directly with the master's in situ productions. Moreover, it is a preamble to the exhibition Chagall, le passeur de lumière devoted to stained glass art, which will open in September. It is not surprising when you see that the works of the two artists are in perfect symbiosis! Transparency, opacity and monochrome are all practices that bring them together. Like Marc Chagall's works, those of Cécile Bart require zenithal light to be seen in the best conditions. They invite the viewer to move sideways and in a panoramic manner, reminiscent of a camera. Indeed, Cécile Bart's art is strongly influenced by cinema: her paintings look like screens, she plays a lot with the depth of space... Much more than an exhibition, it is a real immersive experience that is different for each of us.
