Laurent Mareschal solo exhibition at 'Hakibbutz' Gallery

Opening: Friday, September  3rd , 2010 12:00
 (Closing: 8:10:10)
 
Curator: Yael Kainy
 

.'Pantonima' is a site specific installation built especially for 'Ha'kibbutz' gallery
Laurent Mareschal will cover the gallery floor, with thirty-five huge squares, 1.55 square meters each, made out of spices. Each square will be of a different shade and composed of spices mixes, .so the floor will look like Pantone* chart
Wooden path will allow the viewer to walk in these ”color fields".
This art work stimulates the visitor's senses (view and smell) and arouse his feelings and lost memories.
 
Mareschal: "We can say it's like walking in a colorful landscape, but you can also see it as as abstract painting. When you close your eyes, you could even think you're visiting a spices market
..."
 
Mareschal uses food in his art works. He creates sensitive, fragile and temporary installations in a subtle and poetic manner.
In a previous exhibition, he created an artwork, The Carpet (Tapis, 2003), a carpet made out of hummus, ornamented with spices. These patterns are borrowed from the Bedouin embroidery. At the opening, the audience was invited to eat the carpet! In another piece, Sweet & Sour, 2010, that been placed under a hidden stairs, Mareschal reconstructed an abandoned Arab cemetery by sugar cane cubes and powder.

Through very simple acts the artist reminds us our vulnerability.
Mareschal's use of food is rather unconventional, he doesn't sanctify it. He puts it under our feet and gives us a different experience. He offers multi-sensorial events, aesthetic, tasty, fragrant and thought-provoking.

Laurent Mareschal lives and works in Paris and his works have been shown in Europe and Israel. Recent exhibitions: Mamco, Geneva, Grand Palais, Paris, BPS22, Belgium, The Emily Harvey Foundation, New York. In Israel he got part in different group shows including Nachshon Gallery, and the Israeli Center for Digital Art in Holon. Soon, Ashdod Museum will present his solo exhibition curated by Yona Fischer. Mareschal studied at Le Frenoy and won many scholarships and prizes.
 
The exhibition received the generous support of Maimon Spices Company,
and the help of Aran Factory, Kibbutz Nachshon, Israel
