EXERCICES DE STYLE
Pauline Bayet & Annee Grøtte Viken, Rue des Fabriques
Bruxelles

‘Finissage’ June 29th 2018



‘Exercices de Style’ after Raymond Queneau explore material tales through the craft of decorative painting. Onyx, Breche De Vendome, Pine, other marbles and imaginary woods were manipulated and explored through formats, composition, surfaces and application on the third floor of an appartment in Rue des Fabriques. It was served with lemonpie in one evening only.

“We must confess we do not read Italian, so it is a bit useless for us, but the spines are ridiculously beautiful sitting on a shelf. The vertically sliced near repetition of that bit of Bernini’s Daphne, with bold text overlay, is graphic bliss.”

Linseedoil, terpentine, natural pigments, water & paper.
