Capucine Vever’s exhibition Far Away at Gallery Eric Mouchet is about an atopic space, a place outside the places: the horizon. Understood not as the limit but as the beginning of an inaccessible otherworldliness, it is about the projection of what is hidden from the eye or has been buried in time. The exhibition is gathering a series of photographs, engravings, a film and a painting accompanied by a soundtrack. These works reflect the process of searching for a visual phenomenon. It is sometimes a dreamlike landscape concealed in the night depth that the hypersensitivity of the photographic sensor, in the instant of the cliche, is committed to revealing. It is beyond the horizon, on the high seas, where the intense activity of international maritime freight is hidden, as dizzying as the infinity of an oceanic landscape conducive to daydreaming. It is a state of the future that shows through the process of a cartography abstraction, relating the impact of human activity on the seabed. Finally, it is the imprint of geological time, digging the stone of a limestone line, and transformed into soundscape. Through the varied work of forms and materials, in a poetic as well as political concern, the horizon appears in this exhibition, according to the expression of Céline Flécheux, as «the imaginary and the real against which one comes to stop. »
Supported by a high level of quality and expertise, Galerie Eric Mouchet displays an eclectic and demanding programme, under the influence of its founder Eric Mouchet, an expert in graphic arts for the Appeal Court of Paris and a specialist of Le Corbusier’s drawing work. Collector of international artists of the 70s-80s and young emergent artists, Eric Mouchet made the jump in 2014 to bring together his passion for contemporary art and his expertise while opening his gallery, 45 rue Jacob, Paris 6th, in 2014. Located in the historical cultural centre of Paris, Galerie Eric Mouchet shows real individuality and contributes to the opening up SaintGermain-des-Prés.
