We are pleased to welcome you to our viewing room.

Due to Covid-19, we would like to virtually share with you the group exhibition "Winter Show", currently displayed at the gallery.

Espace Meyer Zafra is pleased to present a group exhibition entitled "Winter Show" gathering the seven artists : Marina Apollonio, César Andrade, Carmelo Arden-Quin, Narciso Debourg, Manuel Mérida, César Paternosto and Marine Provost.

Marina Apollonio is one of the most important figure in the kinetic world, showcasing an extensive portfolio of works that have been exhibited in the world's greatest collection such as Guggenheim Collection in Venice, the Hermes Foundation, the Museum of Modern Art in Torino, the New Museum in New York, the MACBA of Buenos Aires, the Villa Datris Foundation in France and ZKM Center for art and media Karlsruhe in Germany. In addition, her participation in group exhibitions such as Dynamo at the Grand Palais in Paris, or more recently Vertigo, at Mumok in Austria, and at Kunstmuseum of Stuttgart in Germany and Hypnose at Musée d'Arts de Nantes in France, can attest to the fact she is generating a lot of interest from curators and museums.

In 1977, Paternosto began to travel to Bolivia and Peru to study the archaelogical sites Tiwanaky, Ollantaytambo, and Machu Picchu. These trips marked an important turning point in his work sparking new formal explorations in shape, composition, and color. By rooting his art in American autochthonous traditions rather than in the modern European model, Paternosto created a new and original type of abstraction based on the centuries-old woven textiles and sculptural stones of the Inca. Paintings by Paternosto are found in various prestigious collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York ; The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York ; The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston ; The Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid and the Kunstmuseum, Bern, amongst others.

Carmelo Arden-Quin is an Uruguayan artist. Arden-Quin's primary focuses were painting and poetry. From a young age, Arden-Quin was an ambitious and idealistic artist. Today, Arden-Quin is mostly recognized for his co-founding of the MADI Movement, which began in Argentina but ultimately became an international movement. Arden-Quin's commitment to invention, rather than replication or representation, drove his relentless pursuit of new forms and ideas.

In 1951, influenced by Constructivism, Narciso Debourg began experimenting with what would become his main area of focus for the rest of his life : the repetition of small geometric forms, flat at first, and later cubical and cylindrical, regularly placed on the support of the work and cut diagonally to produce rhythmical alterations of light. Some of the works were monochromes and the effects were very subtle and, in others as in the case of these both pieces, the color stood out from the background of the small surfaces where cuts had been made, producing dynamic undulations.

Manuel Mérida seeks to avoid offering a still and unique vision by playing with the variations of the colorful matter (pigments, sans, coal powder, wood particles and painted metal) present in his monochromes. His works are always mobile and their shapes, dimensions and colors are always different. From 1968 through 1971, he worked with Carlos Cruz-Diez in Paris. He then settled down in Paris in 1983. Every movement creates a new, unexpected monochrome; with each rotation, the organic matter contained in Mérida’s sculptures presents an infinitely different shape. Mérida has received multiple international awards and was part of numerous museum exhibitions around the world. Hermès has also collaborated with Manuel Mérida to create all of the brand's windows in Paris, New York, Geneva, Cannes, Shanghai and other major cities. His works are also displayed at the prestigious Cheval Blanc hotels of Louis Vuitton in Saint Barthélémy and in the Maldives.

"My artistic practice is closely linked to the perception of everyday life, to the influence that our environment has on who we are. The materials, the tools that serve me are the ones which are available in my surroundings. The objects that I use have systematically grown out of their primary function. They are considered for their materiality and the potential it has to offer, at the service of plastic thinking. One thing can become another, it's all about perspectives." Marine Provost

César Andrade studied at the School of Visual Arts in Barquisimeto, Venezuela. After undertaking his functions as a professor of visual arts in Acarigua, he went to visit Europe in 1968 and finally moved to Paris. He exhibited the following year his first "linigramas" as part of what he considered being the first in-depth study on the line. Though his work has primarily been focused on the use of nails aligned so as to capture the light and reinforce the color during the spectator's displacement. Linigramas work come to disturb the eye in the same precise alignment by drawing lines by felt tip pen.
