This Summer, Galerie Templon is showcasing contemporary drawing in an original and celebratory show featuring Omar Ba, Abdelkader Benchamma, Norbert Bisky, Oda Jaune and Chiharu Shiota. The artists were invited to appropriate the gallery walls and create an array of unique wall installations. The ephemeral works will be accompanied by a new series of drawings produced specially for the exhibition.
The five artists, members of the same generation and hailing from three different continents, Africa, Asia and Europe, represent a globalised world where different cultures meet, mingle and merge. What their work has in common is the role given to drawing, elevated to the same rank as painting, sculpture and installations. Their drawing practice is thus given free rein to explore a range of tools, materials and supports as they cover the walls and appropriate the space.
The From the Paper to the Wall exhibition invites visitors on a journey where they can experience the same feelings of playfulness and freedom. It can be visited in the gallery from 6 June to 26 July and online via a dedicated website: drawingroom.templon.com
