La mer allée avec le soleil
ANGE LECCIA
INTROSPECTIVE EXHIBITION

Visitors are first greeted by five self-portraits filmed at different periods in time, as if to immediately make the artist’s acquaintance. Only after this first, physical encounter do they enter the world of Leccia’s interior meanderings. Four screens gently cling to the gallery’s architecture. Through four structures that were specially-designed for the exhibition, we dive into 35 years of artistic practice.

These structures reveal the figures behind Ange Leccia’s singularity and beauty: the omnipresence of water, memories of his Corsican youth; explosions, storms, and beachcombers illustrating his raw sensitivity; reworked TV images, where his own gravity mingles with the gravity of the world (constantly contrasted with the beauty of the natural world); young women or adolescence as the state of creation where everything is possible, but where one also feels lost when faced with the unknown; pop and hit songs that often cling to the memory of a strong emotion.

This “introspective exhibition” obviously ends with the sea. Or, rather, three of them: one filmed in Super 8, the other in DVCAM, and the last in HD. Ange Leccia’s artistic practice has also been the history of recording on video. Just like every ocean wave is unique, every format tells a different story.
