Cathryn Boch grabs and abuses the paper with the needle of a sewing machine until it blisters, leaving no part of it untouched. Together, the fragility of the paper, the pierced layer and the proliferation of the threads reveal a constantly changing environment. Maps, topographic images and aerial photographs are the source material for her work. She confronts territories and the impermanence of borders, as well as the social, political and ecological concerns that come along with them. Here, the landscape-bodies wear their own sutured cloth. For Cathryn Boch, borders, the demarcations of territory-migration-occupations-alterations, are the many scars reflecting the chaos of the human and planetary changes to come.

Galerie Papillon is recognized for its personal editorial line, its commitment to the French art scene (C. Boch – Drawing Now Prize 2014; Berdaguer&Péjus – Ricard Prize 2007) and its sensitivity to drawing (G. Chotard – Drawing Lab 2018; F. Loutz – nominated Guerlain rize 2008). Managed by Marion Papillon since 2007, the gallery brings together artists that have a common sense of poetry and irony (E. Sahal – La Monnaie de Paris 2018; D. Trenet – Centre Pompidou 1997). The development of its team relies also on foreign artists (J. Pérez – Venice Biennale 2011; T. Woslka – Palais de Tokyo 2014). Founded in 1989 by Claudine Papillon, the gallery also benefits from a historic work on artists that became iconic (E. Dietman, S. Polke, D. Roth). By joining forces, Marion and Claudine Papillon give Galerie Papillon its identity: two generations with two complementary visions sharing the same values and a common goal; to promote artists and their work on the international art scene.
