New monograph: a retrospective of Cécile Bart's main projects since fifteen years, from the multiple configurations of her painting/screen to her most recent immersive works, with three interviews.
Published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at the Frac Bretagne, Rennes, from November 2018 to March 2019.
Effet d'hiver comes with three different dust jackets, randomly distributed.
Since the late 1980s, Cécile Bart (born 1958 in Dijon, France) has induced viewers to experience seeing as an integral part of the world instead of detached from it. Her paintings are sometimes décor, sometimes moving bodies, and also part of an exhibition of the scenes created by the paintings themselves, to which are added the presence of the visitors. Indeed, Cécile Bart's paintings are sensitive tools for exploring the reality of a place and everything that gives life to it. Her painting/screen remains translucent; light passes through it and it can be seen through. It is almost impossible to look at the color alone. Everything which enters into the frame is projected onto it.
