The exhibition La trace du vent is a tribute to the grandfather of gallery owner Thomas Benhamou. Gone last December at the age of 90, Maurice Benhamou was recognized as an art historian, poet and art critic. He leaves behind a unique collection of works of art: a twisted and colourful iron sculpture by Dennis Oppenheim; one one of Claude Chaussard's canvas with his random yet non-arbitrary projections of chalk powder; abstract foldings on canvas by Jean Degottex; the colourful abstraction and lyricism of Charles Pollock; and others. They all have in common that they have produced sensitive and minimalist works resulting from genuine aesthetic research, which are assembled here with taste and sensitivity. La trace du vent is a humanist, unique and intimate exhibition that definitively establishes the links between the art critic grandfather and the gallerist grandson. The latter thus shares with us the poet's legacy and the ETC gallery, more than ever, represents "visually a part of his heart".
