12 of us Moderne Jazzers – Christ, Cor21, Frida, Gsulf, Hams, Ishem 8, Matti, Noteen, Obisk, Yor81, ンタン – had a vernissage of our third exhibition together last Saturday (Nov 11) at Module in Paris. We all made a children’s toy and some sketches,ンタン made the poster above and Christ wrote the text about the exhibition. Here is a quick peek of the exhibition, but for all the details, you should go to the exhibition in person ; )

Recent trip to Rennes was to attend the varnissage of Kevin’s solo exhibition at Galerie 126. Kevin Pinsembert aka Christ is a recent graduate from ENSCI (an industrial design graduate school), an artist, a graffiti writer, the tallest member of Moderne Jazz, foremost a friend, always curious, finds beauty everywhere. Really everywhere. He is also a avid sketcher. If you ever run into him, you’ll most likely see him sketching on his often homemade sketchbook with a black fine felt-tip pen. I always enjoy going through it – his shaky lines, mirrored writings, some graffiti, some drawings, often sketches of ideas, some pure shapes…

This exhibition titled <CADRES> is his first solo show, and simply put, it is a blow up 3D version of his sketchbook in color. I love it.

The exhibition is finished, sorry, but you can see more photos of the exhibition here and the photos of his residency at Galerie 126 preparing for this exhibition here, and you can follow his instagram account here.

Last Friday, I took a bus to Brussels. After four long hours, chatting with a friendly Senegalese man who sat next to me (he started the conversation with “Senegal is love peace and harmony”), I arrived at Salon Mirage – a three day edition/book/zine festival.

Mattie (now my husband since a few weeks ago <3) was invited for a group exhibition during the festival along with Quentin Chambry, Alexis Poline and Adrien Frégosi. All four of them live in different cities (Paris, Rennes, Angers, Sète), so they arrived in Brussels a week before the exhibition opening to produce all the works under the same roof.

Mattie didn’t send me any photos during the week of the production, and I didn’t really ask for them. Mattie’s last few exhibitions were with me, so I was looking forward to be surprised by what he would produce with other guys.

When I walked up to the gallery space which was a floor above the book fair, Senegalese man’s words on the bus came to my mind – “love peace and harmony!” A group exhibition could often be chaotic or divided, but instead, I found the show otherwise. Also, even though I know everyone’s work really well – especially Mattie, Quentin and Alexis’ works – their choice of collaborating made the works new and surprising.


Quentin painted these series with diluted ink off of a carbon paper.


Mattie made the base print using smeared offset printing ink, then together with Quentin and Alexis, they painted on top with ink and oil sticks.


Alexis usual giant canvases, but with unusual brush strokes and color combination. 


Drew by Quentin and colored by Alexis. One of my favorite pieces.


Mattie’s paper cut out series, which surprised me the most, using feather light papers and staples. They hung loosely by yarns, almost floating and beautifully backlit by the window behind them.

The book festival was equally great – cozy atmosphere, friendly people, admirable zines (I will share them in future posts), satisfying croque-monsieur served at the bar. You can check out the photos of the festival here (French).

It was a short trip, and we took the train back to Paris on Sunday. As we were walking to the train station, I would not stop talking about Belgium french fries and american filet (my must eats in Belgium) which we didn’t have time to eat and wished I had a few more hours in Brussels. Well, next time : )

Ishem Rouiaï is an impressive and charismatic guy, who on a normal day wears a judogi top and boxing shorts with a fox fur around his neck, then only an hour later he would change into his leopard print tank top and flashy jogging pants. But foremost, Ishem is a generous, warm, easygoing friend. Also he is a very talented artist who currently lives in Marseille and a member of Moderne Jazz.

This September, after his short residence at Galerie 126 in Rennes, he had his solo exhibition titled <AGRUM’ LEMON>. I was happy to be there for the vernissage.

Check out the photos of his residency here for all the interesting behind the scene photos. Also check out the zines he made during his residency here and here. And of course follow Ishem on his site, Instagram and tumblr.

COME CLERINO EXHIBITION / BEAUX-ARTS, PARIS - angdoo.com/blog

Before summer, I visited Paris beaux-arts to see Côme Clérino‘s graduation exhibition. He layered many different mediums onto the cement plates to create impressive pieces.

The school is also impressive. Beaux-arts are prestigious national fine art school in France. The beaux-arts in Paris was right in the city center in a beautiful historic building (I’ve passed by many times before but never thought it was a school). Once I entered the school, I almost forgot that I was in Paris.

I felt quite envious of the students here hehe. Those rare time I get to visit universities, I dream of going back to school myself.

ALEXIS POLINE / EXHIBITION - angdoo.com/blog

Alexis Poline is a friend, an artist, a member of Moderne Jazz, who practices judo (seriously), swims and lives in Angers. Alexis’ love for his town is great, and he invited me and Mattie many times over, but never got around to it until this day on May 15. This day was the opening of his solo exhibition in Angers, a perfect occasion to visit him unannounced and surprise him.

Although Alexis didn’t look so surprised when we arrived (did we surprise you Alexis? hehe), I was surprised with his canvases. Even though I already knew his work pretty well, I never had the occasion to see his large format canvas in person. Standing there, looking at his three giant paintings. levitating away from the walls, I wished I lived in a huge house and had lots of money to buy all three of them. Well, maybe one day.

AMATEURS EXHIBITION / STRAAT GALERIE - angdoo.com/blog

Let me give you a little tour of our current exhibition at Straat Galerie in Marseille : )

This exhibition, titled AMATEURS which is also the duo name of Mattie and I, is the outcome of our two-week residency from end of April to beginning May. Only idea we took with us to Marseille was the idea of making a very VERY thick book of quick sketches. First four or five days of our residency were dedicated to drawing. Mattie and I would sit next to or in front of each other and just drew and discussed about the exhibition. Then we created a few rules of our exhibition:

  1. Draw many many sketches.
  2. Ask friends to choose their favorites.
  3. Turn the selected sketches into sculptures.
  4. Name each piece after the friend who chose the sketch.

We ended up drawing more than 1600 sketches, which we hand bounded into a book of 3200 + pages, and 11 big and some bigger wall pieces named after our friends.

The opening of the exhibition was a part of PAC (an annual contemporary art festival in Marseille) and  l’Année France-Corée 2015-2016 (the year of France and Korea sharing their cultures through events, performances, exhibitions, etc), so many people visited from art walks and group tours.

Under are some photos from professional photographers who took some photos of our exhibition.

ISHEM ROYER FRIDA / GALERIE ASSOCIATION D'IDÉES - angdoo.com/blog

Ishem, Royer and Frida are friends whom we hung out with, helped us with our exhibition and went painting with when we were in Marseille. We are all in a same crew, Moderne Jazz, and we are good buddies. But friendship aside, I’ve been a great admirer of their graffitis ever since I started painting on walls.

I was excited when I first learned of their group exhibition at Galerie Association D’idées in Marseille and that I would there to see it in person as our exhibition aligned with theirs.

The show was titled <Le Retour Des Beaux Jours> which translates to ‘the return of the beautiful days.’ They showed paintings, stitchings, needle feltings, stone engravings, wood works and some zines. There are so many details which you have to see in person. Sadly, the exhibition ended last week, but here are some photos for those who missed it.

AMATEURS UPCOMING EXHIBITION / STRAAT GALERIE - angdoo.com/blog

Mattie and I are heading south to Marseille tomorrow for the next two weeks to prepare for our exhibition at Straat Gallerie. I’ve never been to this gallery before, but it has already exhibited some of our good friends in the past – Alexis Poline, Guillaume Pellay, Frida, RoyerIshem, FEO, L’outsider.

This will be our second show under our duo name AMATEURS.  The experience of preparing and exhibiting our first solor show at 126 Galerie in Rennes last year was unique and special, especially to a person who is new to making art and exhibiting. And I feel fortunate to be invited to make another show. Our show will be a part of this year’s 8th Printemps de l’Art Contemporain, also known as PAC, an annual contemporary art festival in Marseille. And as I am a Korean-born, our show is also a part of l’Année France-Corée 2015-2016 (the year of France and Korea sharing their cultures through events, performances, exhibitions, etc), and I am proud : )

We have a lot of work to do for the next coming two weeks, but I hope the sun will be out so we can swim at least once in the crystal clear blue water I’ve seen in so many pictures. Can’t wait!

 

Oh and if you are in or around Marseille, come see us on our opening day on May 5!

Two of my A FLAG FOR EVERY HOME flags are part of a group show, Wall Hangings, at Les Gens Heureux in Copenhagen. I feel honored to be showing my work at a gallery which previously exhibited some of my favorite artists such as Guy Yanai and Matthew Feyld. And to top this, my flags are hanging next to the works of Mimi Jung, Confetti System and Clarisse Demory!! You can’t see me, but I’m dancing with joy right now ; )

Here are some photos from Les Gens Heureux’s instagram.
