New monograph / artist's book based on a series of paintings realized between 2012 and 2013.
With the same image of Freud's divan on its front and back covers, "Orion Aveugle", Anne Laure Sacriste's new artist's book, offers a selection of recent paintings marked by an intensification of the characteristics we have come to know: monochrome grounds, vegetal motifs and visual anamneses. Borrowing the principle of free association (here, of pictures) from psychoanalysis, she also includes a fragment from Nicolas Poussin's "Blind Orion Searching for the Rising Sun". This is her simultaneous subversion of the ideals of classical clarity and analytical decoding: we can see only thanks to blindness and dazzlement.
Anne Laure Sacriste (born 1970) is a Paris-based visual artist. Her works have been exhibited in Paris (Air de Paris, Galeries des Galeries Lafayette, Lafayette, Fondation d'entreprise Ricard, Art:Concept…), in France (Musée d'art moderne Saint Etienne, Villa Betarix Enea, Anglet, Château d'Avignon, Arles…) and in the rest of the world (Fri-Art, Fribourg, Galerie Hadrien de Montferrand, Beijing, Chung King Project / François Ghebaly, Los Angeles…).
