FIAF is delighted to welcome multi-disciplinary artist Roxane Revon to the FIAF Gallery to present Hidden Places. Inspired by the complexity, elegance, and hidden beauty of root systems, this exhibition features a series of ink drawings and oil pastels, as well as a video installation to bring these “hidden places” into view.
Revon follows a methodical process that includes mapping the underground ecosystem of a specific geographic location, as well as germinating, photographing, and sketching a variety of plant roots. From these studies, emerge the vibrant, delicate lines that spread throughout her œuvre. With each drawing and each unique sprout of roots, Revon invites us to imagine a perspective different from our own. Her work interrogates our relationships to “non human beings,” especially plants. In her current installations inspired by her readings of anthropologist Natasha Myers and Philippe Descola, she stages new ways to see and seed a plant/people relationship in the here and now.
Meet Roxane Revon and enjoy a glass of wine from 6-7pm at the opening reception on Thursday, June 2 in the FIAF Gallery.
At 7pm, head to the FIAF Skyroom (8th floor) for a conversation in French with Aude Adrien and Anne Picq about their book, New York : au cœur de la création contemporaine, followed by a wine reception. See details here.
