Paris, 29 February 2012, Art Media Agency (AMA).
The Inception Gallery will display photographs and videos by Christine Barbe in the exhibition, “Corps et paysages mutations” (Body and rural landscape mutations) from 15 March to 2 April 2012.
This will be the first time that the Inception Gallery will exhibit Barbe’s works. The press release describes the exhibition as an, “overview of the environmental changes suffered by our modern rural areas. There is an overlap between human activity and its environment, which fosters reflection upon the future of metropoles.” Barbe explains that the exhibition, “is based on recreations of rural areas in an ambiguous fashion which questions urban environments; human involvement collides with the environment.”
Barbe earned a degree in Fine Arts and Art Sciences from the Université d’Arts plastiques in St-Charles in 1979 as well as a degree in film studies from the Institut d’Art et d’archéologie from Paris I Panthéon Sorbonne. Some of her work is part of permanent collections in modern art museums in Grenoble and Tokyo, the Coprim foundation (Paris), and Deutsch (Switzerland), the Novotel d’art contemporain collection in Paris, the future Musée d’art contemporain in Assilah, Morocco, and several private collections throughout the world.
