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.

BEHIND THE STORY / RESIDENCY AT GALERIE 126 - angdoo.com/blog

Early September, already more than a month ago, Mattie and I arrived at Galerie 126 in Rennes to prepare for our Amateurs exhibition. The following ten coming days, we lived in a grand humongous house adjoining the gallery space. I’ve already posted the photos of the exhibition, but I thought to share those ten days before the exhibition, which in many ways is more special for me.

When Galerie 126 first asked Amateurs to exhibit there, I was very flattered. Mattie had done many exhibitions before, however it was first for me. It’s been only two or three years since I started making some art pieces as a side fun, and I only dreamed of doing a show maybe in the far far away future. So I was pretty thrilled.

For those who don’t know Galerie 126, it is a house-turned-art-residency and a garage-turned-art-gallery in Rennes. Four loveliest boys in town – Toto, Louis, Hugo and Quentin – who live and run the gallery, invite artists from all over the world to stay with them for a few weeks and have an exhibition at the end of the stay.

Yup, it is quite a special place with special people : )

There are two cats there. This is Luke, the coolest cat I ever met. Strangely I don’t have any photos of Buba, the three-legged-half-tailed-cat, who is equally cool and oh so soft with a touch of sassiness (strange because I take photos of every animal I encounter).

Amateurs’ first solo exhibition kicked off like the film above. Giant flags Mattie and I made during our 10 day residency at Galerie 126 were hung high, and we turned the gallery into a mikado play room, decorated with small sculptures. If you have already passed by the gallery to see our show and played a game of mikado, I’m flattered. If you haven’t because you are too far away from Rennes, here is a little tour for you.

MODERNE JAZZ EXHIBITION / SLIKA GALLERY - angdoo.com/blog

Beginning of this month, Moderne Jazz got together in Lyon for our exhibition at Slika Gallery. As we are numerous and scattered everywhere around France, it was a rare golden opportunity for most of us to get together. Besides dancing and getting into trouble, each of us had to print a photo of a graffiti piece and create an art piece which links to that particular graffiti piece.

Works by Bise, Ishem, Frida, Gsulf, Torpen, Matti, Christ, Rubio, Joris, Akbar, Royer, L’Outsider and Maze
