French minimalist artist Bernar Venet’s works are currently in town! [fr]
Visit Visual Language – Radical Abstraction at de Sarthe Gallery.
Followed by the two successful exhibitions of Bernar Venet held last year in Hong Kong: “Bernar Venet – Paintings 1967 – 2010” and “Bernar Venet: Monumental Sculptures” organized during the 20th edition of Le French May, currently French-owned de Sarthe Gallery once again is presenting Bernar Venet’s works, and this time together with two American conceptual artists Jenny Holzer and Barbara Kruger.
These three unique and distinctive artists have made their stamp on the cultural heritage of their time by bringing particularly into focus language as art and subsequently art as language. Each artist, in separate ways, seeks to utilise declarative forms of mass communication through the exploration of large-scale imagery and text creating radical new visual approaches to conceptual art.
