” SER, ENTRE SEMILLA Y CENIZA. “
Delimbo Gallery, Sevilla. 2018
“To be, between seeds and ashes ” is the title of the new exhibition by the artist Guillaume Alby, better known by his artistic name Remed, an exhibition in which he presents a selection of his works produced in the last year.
The exhibition is made up of a total of 12 large-format paintings, 24 drawings and two sculptures that the artist has produced together with artisans from the city of Seville, enriching both his work and his knowledge, as well as at the same time giving support, recognition and visibility of the local art and craft scene.
Remed develops a work with a great relationship between the spiritual, the mathematical and the aesthetic, creating a harmony both visual and sensorial.
With that title, he refers to the human condition, to the context of life itself, as well as to the process of creation. In his words “We know that we born, we live, and we pass away, our body then turning into dust. One might think that a work of art could, at times, pretend to have a longer lifespan than its creator. The creator, being the seed made plant, will provide seeds in his fruits, in his works. Beyond the object, each piece of Art when experienced by the viewer, grows within their perception. The vibration, the emotion, the vision felt will eventually blossom, and/or disappear. Leaving room for another seed to grow, its ashes are the ground of the futur, the foundation, or the ruins that will host the next cycle, the present. Always redefining itself. Nothing disappears, it just constantly rearrange through time, in the endless dance of matter. Only movement is perennial. “
It is the present moment to which Remed seeks to move us with the contemplation of his work, just the moment in which we find ourselves between the seed and the ashes, to make us celebrate life through art. Enjoy the dance !
