MATTHEW DARBYSHIRE / ANGE LECCIA

For its first show of 2018, Galerie Jousse Entreprise is playing host to  Ange Leccia and Matthew Darbyshire for a dialogue about fetishism.

With Poussière d’étoiles/Stardust, Leccia takes the use of images from his personal archives to its height. 

The matter of the super 8 film and the TV screen vibrates dizzily to capture the energy of the projection. 

In contrast, Matthew Darbyshire's transparent resin objects seem marked by a cruel fixedness. 

But his 3D x-rays also present the fingerprints which Roxman Gatt left behind during his performances after handling these same objects. A form of eroticism thus permeates the whole exhibition in a continual seesaw between the warmth of bodies and the cold expression of our digital worlds.
