Campredon art center in Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is devoting an exhibition to the artist Françoise Petrovitch shaping since the 90s a singular and strong work across different media. Constantly evolving, his silent and often disturbing work thrives on the intimate and the collective, the daily and universal to reveal an ambiguous world that stimulates our imagination while disrupting subtly. The exhibition is organized around a scenography designed by the artist and adjusted to the spirit of the place. Playing with the media and formats, it reveals a new pan of his research on the subject of Nocturnes, extending the event presented in 2016 at the FRAC Paca. A selection of sculptures, videos, drawings and paintings including a unique collection of works on paper and canvas rhythm in the course. By opening a bronze specially made for the courtyard of the Hotel Campredon greets visitors Island, while a series of paintings and sculptures unfolds in the dim twilight of the elegant residence of the eighteenth century: the figures childhood animal imaging, altered bouquets of flowers that seem to throw their last fires before dying, masked characters or spectral silhouettes as absorbed by the thick walls hung with dark colors, are exposed to public view. Hanging walls with purple, garnet red or gray ash, the dark paints flamboyant reflections are integral with the architecture. They exude waves and trembling glimmers suspended as tiny particles endangered. In the course, a video Vertical and some great ink wash bathed in fluid and clear color come awaken these aim twilight. The dream, secrecy and ambivalence - recurring themes at Françoise Petrovitch - are at the heart of these nocturnal variations. Everything is imbued with a restless sweetness that manifests the loss or vanity and induces sensationd'un floating world. Strolling through the exhibition, visitors will be sensitive to plastic beauty works as poetic confluences their vicinities offer. Between appearance and disappearance, shadows and light, gentleness and violence, past and present, Nocturnes refers to the dark side of ourselves and open up countless interpretative pleasures.
