AO on site: Opening of Jules de Balincourt “Worlds Together, Worlds Apart” at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac through July 2nd, 2011June 27th, 2011
AO was on site for the second exhibition of Jules de Balincourt, “Worlds Together, Worlds Apart ” at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac in Paris. The opening began with a private talk given by art critics Nicolas Bourriaud (best known for his seminal book “Relational Aesthetics”) and Judith Benhamou-Huet, and focused on de Balincourt’s influences and ways of processing. The New York based artist explained his recent work, which moves between abstraction and figuration, and compared it to a “big zapping.” Jules de Balincourt worked 6 months on the set of paintings, which were created specifically for this show.
