ERNEST PIGNON-ERNEST - EMPREINTES

Thursday 13.12.18 - Sunday 10.02.19
Museum

Public preview Wednesday 12 December from 6.00 pm.

Curator: Roger Pierre Turine

Welcoming Ernest Pignon-Ernest (Nice, 1942) to the Botanique was not an obvious choice. The man is very much in demand, exhibited successfully all over and, since his big Rétrospective du MaMac, in Nice, in 2016, his aura has expanded to the point of condemning him to never stop.

Parisian gallery Lelong & Co, who have represented him for some thirty years, allow this seasoned traveller to be forward-looking while covering his back, in the sense of managing his work when it comes to loaning it to institutions. Like here at the Botanique.

The idea of a Pignon-Ernest exhibition came from Marie Papazoglou and the artist quickly saw the merits of a visit to Brussels where his work had not been exhibited. Hence this event that represents an immersion in his universe, which so conveniently focuses on the cause of humanity in peril.

Coming from a very modest background in Nice, ever since he was a child Ernest Pignon-Ernest demonstrated a gift for drawing. But it was as a self-taught artist that, years later, he emerged onto the art scene… at a tangent.
