Speerstra Gallery Switzerland is pleased to present Stéphane Trois Carrés' exhibition "Upside down".
The Upside Down exhibition was born out of an experiment conducted at the studio entitled "Domain events". The set of works presented in the exhibition is drawn from the two works that disappeared. The principle is to reunite and play with the surplus productions of prints and paintings made in the studio before. Like so many potential worlds with variable properties, installed on a magnetic wall, maintained by powerful neodymium magnets, the paper or altuglass models cut with a laser are so many sketches in large format. It is a game of arrangement which changes according to the forces and the plastic debates in progress. Using the principle of sampling in music, Stéphane Trois Carrés has chosen to take photos and print them on canvas in order to constitute backgrounds for the paintings to come. Thus linking the works in a much more subtle perspective of quotation without evaporating their individual power and originality. Particularly composite and random, the photograph provides unity and unifies all the earlier dimensions of the project into a structure that plays with the traditional forces at play in the artist's work.
This dynamic circulation of the project, organizes it in a multidimensional cycle reminiscent of previous projects. The exhibition addresses the question of art in the age of reproducibility. Never before have the means at our disposal been so diversified and extended, this exhibition brings answers to questions raised throughout the 20th century when the possibilities to answer them were not yet available. In an intense visual game, Stéphane Trois Carrés solves essential aesthetic questions.
