Prochain arrêt ?

Pascal Konan

19.04 – 30.06.2021

At Jardin Rouge, Pascal Konan experiences his residency as a laboratory. He explores the art of recycling and imposes on his practice the awareness that everyone must take part in this apprehension. In a context where social divisions and the degradation of our environment are increasing, Pascal Konan evokes in a non-tragic choreography the challenges of tomorrow. We can see the dream and the desire for a different society, for unaligned utopias.

Ligne Bleue

Cédrix Crespel

21.10 – 26.11.2019

A change of dogma. « Ligne Bleue » is that: a new postulate, a new line, a blue line.

In this project, there is first of all the unique colour scheme. As a tribute. To Marrakech, the city that saw Cédrix Crespel reborn. To the giants too. Those who shaped his vision. Matisse, Monory, Klein, of course. Saint-Laurent. The artist forces the gesture to surpass itself.

Divines Mascarades

Dominique Zinkpè

23.03 – 14.04.2019

Conditions Suspensives

David Mesguich

08.12.2018 – 30.01.2019

CCCP

Skunkdog

12.02 – 31.03.2018

« CCCP: Can’t crush crazy people » deciphers fragments of a life, of a life experience, and pays homage to the crazy, the marginalized and the various autodidacts… In a joyful and apparently harmless way, Skunkdog fights against the dogmatisms and fanaticism of our world. The social being is at the heart of his creation.

A kind of bizarre and paranoid Lucifer for some, a generous and sensitive epicurean for others, the artist calls for a return to reality and sensitivity.

Totemism

Yuri Averin

13.02 – 19.03.2017

Yuri Averin left his native Russia for the first time for a residency at Jardin Rouge in 2015. His encounter with Morocco is revealing, he discovers colours, rites, and initiates a reflection on the connection of African people to the earth.

Yuri Averin’s universe suggests inner dreams and permanently sends us back to the experience of immateriality. He sets the viewer’s soul in vibration and meditates on shapes and colours to find the ideal combinations that will make his abstraction a work of art.

Dos au mur

Kouka

05.11 – 05.12.2016

Africa inspires Kouka and it is the African land that allowed him to meet the original civilisation: the Bantus. Kouka, the narrator, the philosopher, questions the mystery of being as a necessary question. What is a free man? In order to answer this question, he searched for the deepest roots of the human being, the African roots.

In his artistic reflection, Kouka now presents his warriors « Dos au mur ». The viewer is no longer facing the work, but is in some way with it.

Jaillir

Benjamin Laading

03.10 – 31.10.2016

Two simple words sum up the artist’s work: time and space. After ten years of alternative painting and studies at the Villa Arson, this young dandy came to interrogate his work in Morocco during his artistic residency at Jardin Rouge.
Benjamin Laading transcribes in his work the ambiguity of a counterculture in an established system. The artist transforms a rapid urban gesture into a slow and controlled composition.

Extraction

TILT

14.05 – 05.07.2016

TILT travels the world and questions our expectations and prejudices, our habits and mental patterns. Painting has never been the art of representation but the art of codification where the power of primitive graffiti asserts itself.

Radical and singular, the artist does not limit himself to the problematic of aesthetics. On the contrary, TILT has created his own visual rhetoric and the codification of its meaning to make it capable of telling a story.

Divine Comédie

POES

10.04 – 16.04.2016

« Divine Comédie » playful and sensible response to the prevailing conformism. The artist uses humour and irony to make this series a poetic ode. He underlines the universality and timelessness of this testimony in favour of an uninhibited pictorial narrative, of a line clearly distorted in the space-time relationships.

Under the sun of Marrakech, in Jardin Rouge, the artist revisits the deadly sins to elaborate a hidden critique of the social and political situation of our world.

Terrains de JE

RESO

12.10 – 15.11.2015

RESO does not claim to belong to any artistic movement, quite the contrary. It is a call towards the living and the human that he wants to make heard. His symbolic alphabet tells of his « Terrains de Je » of which he has preserved the memory. It is thus on these territories that the artist has built his universe.

It is during his Moroccan escapades that the artist was inspired by the atmosphere, the colours of this country which he appreciates for its authenticity.

RED ONE

CEET, Goddog, Kashink, MADC

15.06 – 31.07.2015

« Red One » or a chanted name, a Moroccan resonance, like a call to multiple talents which, within Jardin Rouge, will become one! It is the meeting and the face to face of the zany universe of CEET, of the abstraction of Goddog’s motif, of Kashink’s shifted faces and MadC’s abstract letters. It is also the meeting of four artists who have one thing in common: they all started with a spray can in their hand.

BANTUS

Kouka

04.05- 07.06.2015

« Bantus – No(s) Culture(s) » marks the return of Kouka’s pacifist warriors to the continent. The artist questions traditions and cultures, the past and the present. He likes to remind us that while it is possible to take over a territory, it is not possible to take over a culture. Immobile, bare-chested, dressed in a simple loincloth and carrying a spear, the “Bantus” protect us and ensure the perpetuation of memory.

Ainsi soient-elles

Cédrix Crespel

07.02 – 08.03.2015

During his residencies at Jardin Rouge, Cédrix Crespel questioned contemporary oriental femininity, its paradoxes and ambiguities. « Ainsi-soient-elles » reveals a melody of love between the East and the West.

Cédrix Crespel’s painting translates the idea of absolute femininity through a masculine imagination, betraying what determines a woman’s relationship to her body and her femininity.

Tracing Morocco

Hendrik Beikirch

05.12.2014 – 17.01.2015

Hendrik Beikirch is an eternal explorer and pays tribute to the singular beauty of the ordinary. In Morocco, the idea came naturally to observe these women and men who perpetuate traditional gestures in the souks, in the mountain villages or in the remote corners of the countryside.

« Tracing Morocco » is first and foremost the encounter of a man with a country and its people. The project highlights the nobility of these encounters and human passions.
