The show is a set of six pieces, each one made of a large paper folder onto which the artist sew black and white prints from her distorted self-portraits.
Olga Theuriet uses ordinary photo and printing devices, and simple art material.
Her work, based on traditional gestures, develops an ethymological kinship between text and textile.
She searches “how to sew folders not with nothing, but out of nothing.”
The Arnaud Lefebvre Gallery exists since 1986. It organized the first exhibition of Carl Andre’s poetry in France and retrospective exhibitions of Rosemarie Castoro and of Robert Huot. Since 2010 the Gallery dedicates a large part of her program to Women artists. It represents the estate of the Carribbean-born Artist Hessie, deceased in 2017.
