Primo Marella Gallery is pleased to present Blue Take Me To The End Of All Loves, the second impressive Joël Andrianomearisoa’ solo-exhibition, exclusively conceived for the gallery spaces.
Joël Andrianomearisoa, with his full, sinister and joyous affirmations, was never tempted by the glory of the Nothing, but avidly by the sobriety of the All. That would mean nothing unless the images and spaces, the universe of Joël Andrianomearisoa were not there to give the non-speech, this new unknown, a form.
The artist’s work develops around a non-explicit, often abstract, narration, which everyone perceives yet, cannot put a name to. His world of forms weaves his work into sequences often mired in a deep sadness caused by an absence that is impossible to fill. And for that he uses, in no particular hierarchical order, sound in its immaterial dimension or the book in its hyper materiality, silky textile or rough plastic, black or the most shimmering colours.
For his second solo at the Gallery the entire focus is on Blue, a thousand millions shades, those ones recalling the different skies witnessed every day in Madagascar, his mother country. From this new approach Andrianomearisoa is giving material expression to the complexity of blue to infinity. More blue than the blue of your eyes, mood indigo, blues and blue emotions.
Joël Andrianomearisoa’s work has developed over time through different mediums and materials. In recent years, his creations have often been made from textiles, paper, sometimes wood, minerals, or from unexpected objects (mirrors, perfumes, stamps ... etc.) with which he reinvents magic and causes the emotion.
This “aesthetic emotion”, often sought and rarely achieved, and which is beyond comment.
Joël Andrianomearisoa has been selected to inaugurate the first Madagascar pavilion at the 58th edition of La Biennale di Venezia with his project « I have forgotten the night ».
