Primo Marella Gallery is pleased to present Chanson de ma terre lontaine, the new impressive Joël Andrianomearisoa’ solo-exhibition, expressly conceived for the gallery and inspired by Marguerite Duras’ India song.
The project is a reflection on a sentimental desire towards the geographic longing of Madagascar. Surrounded by a feeling of melancholy, the exhibition displays a series of works of various dimensions and materials. They create a detailed path from black to white and red, combined in many different ways, in order to represent the deepest emotions arising from the India song
His works show a combination of opposing forces and ambivalent movements of affirmation and negation, always conveying a sense of fragility. Although Andrianomearisoa does not usually imagine the finality of his installations, he aims to take the viewer to an unexpected, surprising place. Constantly reinterpreted and renewed, his artworks experiment every possibility in order to create new languages: the monochrome is continuously challenged because “this is when artwork makes sense” as he declared.
