For Paris Gallery Weekend, the Jousse Entreprise gallery is pleased to present a dialogue exhibition between the works of Jennifer Caubet and Eva Nielsen. Embarked upon more than a year ago, the project develops around formal and discursive relations between Eva Nielsen’s silkscreened paintings and Jennifer Caubet’s sculptural installations which fill the gallery. The interplay of scale is incidentally a feature shared by the works of both artists, producing territories which steal away from the existing world in which proportions become blurred. The confrontation and merging of forms convey reality and tend towards abstraction. Similarly, the artists’ work transforms our perception of trivial things, and gives them a different scope.

For almost 30 years, Philippe Jousse has had a deep interest in the aesthetics of 20th century furniture, ceaselessly contributing to the recognition of designers and artists such as Jean Prouvé, Charlotte Perriand, Mathieu Matégot, Le Corbusier… He has played an essential role in the development of French and foreign collectors’ tastes, by developing two parallel activities, in architect-designed furniture and in contemporary art. In 2001, Philippe Jousse separated his activities and opened a gallery dedicated to promoting contemporary art. The artistic line adopted aims to support emerging artists at the same time as renowned figures. The artists represented by the Jousse Entreprise gallery are mostly French, and enjoy an international standing.
