Art Plural Gallery is pleased to announce Water, Colour, Recordings, the solo exhibition of French Berlin-based artist Agathe de Bailliencourt running from August 29 to October 3, 2014 at Third Floor - Art Plural Gallery. The exhibition unveils the new series Couleur du Temps.

Agathe de Bailliencourt’s exhibition deals with the question of horizon, as one of painting’s most basic acts in defining time, space, and a scale of infinity. By applying an extended version of watercolor-technique on untreated linen canvas, de Bailliencourt turns the perspective of a romantic tradition of landscape painting, the imagination of a distant past, towards an open futurist vision.

The untreated linen fiber reacts to the painting material in an extremely sensitive and almost uncontrollable way. At the same time, every action is irreversibly visible, laying bare the entire procedure of producing an image of a landscape.

Through an elaborate method of repetitive movements, of slow sedimentation of color and of recording the process itself, the artist establishes the landscape with a single horizontal line, reminding the work of Hiroshi Sugimoto. The paintings are built up as a complex layering of somehow responsive shades of color.

More than creating an image, Agathe de Bailliencourt creates a context, an environment that is open for the viewer. In her own words, the artist sees the work as an intuitive exploration for an area that shifts the experience of materiality and depth towards something beyond, something beyond inside and outside.
