GERALDINE BLACHE | MINERALS

21junAll Day08julGERALDINE BLACHE | MINERALS

Event Details

Whether it is thought to have fallen from the skies or extracted from the abyss of the earth, the forgotten beauty of metal is quite valuable.
Géraldine’s works of art are a constant invitation to halt. The constituent elements of her works propose a unique essence inspired by her maritime navigations.
Captivated by the characteristics of ore, she goes on an experimental exploration of textures, colours, contrasts, forms and reflections within the walls of her workshop in Beirut. Thus, these minerals, entice to venture on mesmerising discoveries of myriad aspects related to them.
Originally from the Drôme, it is in the French southern town of Sète where she discovered the work of Pierre Soulages, her ultimate inspiration.

39 years old Géraldine Blache offers the vulnerability, fragility, and rawness of the mineral material in her works, stimulated by her understanding of the notion of time and natural transformations. After having settled in Lebanon in 2012, she has been actively creating and engaging with her preferred material.
