Galerie Laure Roynette
10 Oct → 16 Nov 2019
From Tuesday to Saturday 11 am to 1 pm and 2 pm to 7 pm. Closed Monday & Sunday.
The gallery presents, for the first time in Paris, the series of "Format Corrections" by Czech artist Miloslav Moucha, created between 1972 and 1984. In his work, Miloslav Moucha is searching for traces of the sacred and sets himself the objective of achieving the most objective understanding of the world possible. It was at this time that he developed an art that was behind appearances and based on mathematical principles. Geometry, colour, their dialogue in rhythm and vibration linked to the format, are the bases of a plastic vocabulary nourished by contemplation. In 1977, Pierre Restany devoted an article to him whose antinomic title "Between presence and absence" summarizes well the different polarities that characterize Miloslav Moucha's formal research and spiritual quests and will say of him "The Czech artist comes to postulate that human experience can develop entirely according to a unidimensional modality, that of the figure as a writing of the number."
