“In my work, I sample, or extract an event, a phenomenon, a circumstance from everyday life and encapsulate it (hold it) within a space. This sample, the subject of the work, forms part of a whole and its existence depends on the moment of its creation. It can depend too on its position, whether it be geographical, spatial and temporal, or materialistic, energetic and climactic.”
Founded by Fabienne Leclerc in 2001, In Situ began in the 13th district of Paris alongside a group of galleries in rue Louise Weiss. After seven years in the 6th, the gallery moved to the Marais in November 2013 before opening a new space at 14 boulevard de la Chapelle in January 2017. The ambition of In Situ - fabienne leclerc is to promote young and emerging artists in France and internationally, and to support its established artists in the long term. Many artists of the Galerie des Archives - Fabienne Leclerc’s first gallery - continue to collaborate with In Situ: Gary Hill (USA), Mark Dion (USA), Patrick Corillon (Belgium), Patrick Van Caeckenbergh (Belgium), Lynne Cohen (USA), Andrea Blum (USA), Florence Paradeis (France).
