Bringing together several artists, some invited for the occasion, Reality Is Not What It Seems is an exhibition dealing with drawing, in its broadest sense, somewhere between frottage, collage, sewing on paper, printing, and graphic design. Fresh from the studio, sketches illustrate artistic lines of thinking and transport viewers into the intimacy of creation. A form of de- compartmentalization that is also at work in these video artists who, unusually, appropriate the paper medium to transcribe inner visions, and study the boundaries of our perception of the world. So these works appear like so many ways of prolonging their artistic research. Others, which are more conceptual, question the material nature of drawing using the relief lines and symbols, and trompe-l’oeil. All so many approaches like sidesteps opening up to new perspectives, towards a reality which is not what it seems.
