David Myriam exhibit at Espace Noir this summer, with:
The artist will be present for the opening August 07 and following days.
The launching of this exhibition coincides with the anniversary of exceptional international meetings of Anarchy in St. Imier. A major event where many people are expected to participate in various activities: workshops, conferences, book fairs, concerts...
Here’s the blurb from this exhibition:
His style is rather black and white. It can get to the point, to highlight things without distraction. The black and white is more violent, more aggressive, more disturbing, it is the meeting of night and day, a full moon night.
Features and flats are ruthless and violent, just like our sad times.
His black and white drawings have a clean side, symbolic, clinical, sometimes almost abstract. A way of showing that serious questions are universal, independent of times and cultures.
There is sometimes like a child or ET eyes. With the revolt as a driver.
He/she is interested in violence in general, exploitation and works, to animals issues, the destruction of the planet by humans, to gender issues, the process of self-destruction and alienation... This does not prevent some poetry and utopia.
More than news facts, it is absurd structures, archetypes harmful, deadly habits that the artist wants to highlight.
Because if we want to create an alternative, we must try to understand the obstacles and dead ends that "infect" humanity for too long, to avoid the same mistakes or omissions.
The artist wants to enlighten this world to help open up our eyes.
The drawings on paper, mainly in ink, exhibit on walls are complemented by video screens with slide shows of drawings and sand animation shorts. In connection with excerpts from the author.
