Currently on view at Galerie chez Valentin in Paris, France is Niels Trannois’s solo exhibition, “B (hands in a chinese cookie jar)” including a series of new works, combining the installation principle with paintings. Niels Trannois’s paintings can be understood as fragments of the fictional scenario of what could happen if reality were to absent itself, no doubt the submerged side of a world in abeyance overrun by figurative resurgences, ready to hide away or be dissolved as if recaptured by an old atavism. This break, this uprooting that leaves one speechless is what Niels Trannois is trying to render pictorially, to the point of provoking it, in order to “make painting amnesiac” as he says.
“B (hands in a chinese cookie jar)” is on view through November 23rd, 2013.
