Martine Aballéa
The Last Lost Lake and other stories

opening april the 25, 4-9pm
25.04 - 13.06


Art: Concept is pleased to announce Martine Aballéa’s new personal exhibition. «The Last Lost Lake and other stories» is the title of the new fiction that the artist invite us to share at the gallery from April the 25th to June the 13th.

This event comes with the launch of a new monographic and retrospectif catalogue (Sémiose Editions, Paris): «Roman Partiel».

For a while now, Martine Aballéa has held a place apart in the contemporary art scene, developing a hard-to-define and unclassifiable body of work in the form of a rhapsody that juggles, as Elein Fleiss described, conceptual art, gardening, photography, cooking and literature. Although this work—which can be seen as a hard to define series of frames of reference and levels of interpretation—grants primary importance to writing, the interrogation of reproduction and reconstruction, articulated in a most systematic way, constitutes its conductive thread. At the very heart of Martine Aballéa’s work, we find tightly woven material for a reflection on questions of reproduction, multiples and the enactment of fiction. Phenomena related to the duplication and reenactment of events and of reality-gaps permeate the work. Many of her pieces present themselves as deformed mirrors reflecting deformed images of some primary reality, as re-defined by the force of a powerfully operative imagination. (Pascale Cassagnau, «Semiotics of a Ghost Train», in Roman Partiel, éditions Sémiose, Paris, 2009)
