Bakst: des Ballets russes à la haute couture

Paris - Peintre, décorateur et théoricien, Léon Bakst (1866-1924) est connu pour avoir été le principal collaborateur des Ballets russes. Il a aussi travaillé pour l'Opéra de Paris. Créateur des décors et des costumes de plusieurs chefs-d’œuvre – Shéhérazade, Le Spectre de la rose, L’Après-midi d’un faune, Daphnis et Chloé –, travailleur acharné, il construit une œuvre qui révolutionne non seulement la décoration théâtrale mais aussi la mode et les arts décoratifs. Profondément homme de théâtre, il envisage la création comme un tout, s’immergeant dans l’œuvre écrite comme dans la musique avant d’esquisser un univers plastique.

'Rembrandt in the Vatican - Images from Heaven and Earth'

by Antonio Paolucci

 

Anyone familiar with rembrandt’s prints knows that they contain all kinds of things: from summer skies shot through by glare and foreboding to the fatal heaviness of the female body that both oppresses and comforts us. They contain the secret thoughts that cross the mind of a man (alone in his studio, in the twilight of an ordinary day) and the silent life of a tree, looming threateningly on the horizon.

Vikulov’s twinkling Russian scene in London #SothebysRussia

London - 'Russian Pictures' chez Sotheby's. Following the October Revolution of 1917, religious holidays were curtailed as part of the state policy of gosateizm or state atheism. By the late 1920s the state-run League of Militant Atheists managed to eradicate what was left of Christmas, declaring trees and presents papal and anti-Soviet customs. 'The Christmas tree is a fetish', wrote the anti-religious newspaper The Atheist at the Workbench in 1928, 'having thrown away our icons, we now hide God behind the Christmas tree'. However, as early as 1935 the Christmas tree was resurrected at the initiative of Pavel Postyshev, one of Stalin’s closest confidants. In an open letter published in Pravda on 28 December 1935, he proposed to supplant this relic of the 'pre-revolutionary bourgeoisie' with a secular New Year tree which would grace the public squares, schools, orphanages, clubs, cinemas, and theatres of the Soviet Union. The secular version of the tree was to be crowned with a red star rather than the octagonal Bethlehem star and the figures of angels were to give way to baubles with enamelled images of Lenin and Stalin.

Victor Hugo: La Pente de la rêverie
Written by: Culture

Paris - Un poème, une exposition. La maison de Victor Hugo rend hommage au poète et à la poésie en consacrant une exposition à un poème de Victor Hugo : La Pente de la rêverie. Le poème décrit précisément l’expérience d’un rêveur qui, à sa fenêtre, en plein Paris, se laisse entraîner par sa rêverie en des contrées lointaines, reculées, gigantesques et se trouve emporté par ses visions jusqu’au « profond de l’abîme ». Extrait des Feuilles d’automne, ce poème est considéré comme le premier grand poème « visionnaire » de Victor Hugo et annonce les grands textes de l’exil (Contemplations, Légendes des Siècles, Dieu, La Fin de Satan…).

The name of a law which closed brothels in 1946, leaving generations of young men orphaned, for lack of anywhere to secure their "deflowerment".  A little research soon unearths a character worthy of novels and films: an adventurer (in the broadest sense of the word), spy, aviator, high-society wife during the Belle Epoque and a wealthy, man-eating widow.

Paris - La Fondation Louis Vuitton met à l’honneur la scène contemporaine chinoise à travers sa nouvelle programmation: Bentu, première exposition consacrée à l’art chinois en France depuis dix ans, complétée par une sélection d’œuvres de la Collection LV. Au cœur de cette installation, le Bentu alimente les réflexions des artistes invités. Signifiant « terre natale », ce terme interroge le concept de l’universalisme confronté à celui de l’identité propre. Appliqué au monde de l’art chinois, il exprime la singularité des artistes et leur désir de s’exprimer en tant qu’individu particulier au milieu d’une foule uniformisée. Douze artistes de générations différentes ont été réunis pour cette exposition, parmi lesquels Liu Wei, Xu Qu ou encore Hao Liang. A travers des sculptures, peintures et vidéos, ils appréhendent chacun à leur manière les nouvelles donnes économiques et écologiques d’une société en mutation, usant d’une large palette d’outils mêlant artisanat local et technologies de pointe.

Kunsthalle Wien for 2016

Wien - A look at the past decade’s potentials, notably the late stage of Modernism, as well as current reactions to the historical avant-garde movements in art, music, architecture, and design, forms the exhibition program of Kunsthalle Wien for 2016. While the group exhibition Béton deals with social utopias of 1960s and 1970s architecture and their reception in contemporary art, The Promise of Total Automation focuses on the change from automation to digitalization and on machines that have a life of their own. A solo exhibition by painter and designer Nathalie Du Pasquier, who was an important figure of the Memphis movement, presents autonomous art and design in dialogue. Florian Hecker’s solo exhibition explores the possibilities of representing abstraction as a sound space and develops modern composition techniques from the perspective of fine art. Interdisciplinary approaches also shape Andrea Büttner’s work. The artist will provide an insight into her art that is influenced by social issues.

Eros Hugo, Entre pudeur et excès

Paris - «Ce qu’on appelle passion, volupté, libertinage, débauche, n’est pas autre chose qu’une violence que nous fait la vie», écrit Hugo en 1876. Cette violence touche à la fois aux passions de Victor Hugo qui fut un grand amoureux, et à sa sexualité, qu’on s’est complu à présenter comme frénétique. Elle touche à certaines qualités de son œuvre: la puissance, la générosité, le lyrisme. Victor Hugo est à la fois pudeur et excès. Pudeur quand il glorifie, de Cosette à Déa, des amours idylliques, «purs» et presque «chastes». Pudeur quand il réserve à des publications posthumes les poèmes très sensuels écrits pour ses grands amours que furent Juliette Drouet, Léonie Biard et Blanche Lanvin. Pudeur également quand il s’interdit toute intrusion du côté de l’érotisme, fût-il littéraire, alors que le siècle tout autour de lui y verse abondamment. Il est aussi excès dans l’expression des passions au cours de deux scènes presque hallucinées de Notre-Dame de Paris et de L’Homme qui rit. Excès quand il laisse libre cours à la force vitale qui est celle, agissante, chaotique, omniprésente, du dieu Eros. Une extraordinaire puissance porte l’œuvre de Hugo.
