Sophie Ristelhueber
17 May – 14 Jun. 2014

For its first show dedicated to Sophie Ristelhueber, Jérôme Poggi Gallery is pleased to premiere the film Pères (Fathers), made at the invitation of the Contemporary art center Lab-Labanque Béthune as part of the commemorations of the First World War.

Echoing the exhibition "Les Désastres de la guerre. 1800-2014" (The disasters of War 1800-2014) at Louvre-Lens that features several of her works, the artist evokes the war, this time implicity, in this film shot in her family home in Vulaines ( FR).

Sophie Ristelhueber, since the early 1980's, develops a work based on a reflection around territory conceived as a bearer of the traces of human activity and as the remembrance of major historical upheavals.
