Dominique Furgé

28 Aug – 02 Oct. 2010

The POGGI inaugurate its new 2010-2011 programmation by inviting the videographer and filmmaker Dominique Furgé to invest all of its space. Known for its research about abstract resources of the video that always represents a balance in a very ambivalent relationship to reality, he presents from the 28th of August to the 2nd of October 2 video installations on both levels of the gallery and a set works on paper ranging from photography, drawing and video. Finally, several old and new movies of the artist are visible in the new video Office of the gallery.

A set of events punctuated the exhibition during which Dominique Furgé invited several artists, musicians, filmmakers and actors to interfere in relation to his works in progress or planned.

Organized within the framework of meetings ITHINK designed with Object productions, these evenings will be devoted to the theater first, with a read-installation of Philebus from Platon, text on which Dominique Furgé will devote its next film in preparation. Follow an evening on the "abstract cinema" where the film maker, historian and experimental film critic will participate, Christian Lebrat Holon who will project Holon, a 16mm film of 1982 (an exhibition will soon be devoted to Christian Lebrat in the gallery). Finally, highlighting the interest of Furgé for classical and contemporary music, a harpsichord concert Sébastien Amadieu will conclude these meetings.

This exhibition is supported by the endowment Buchet-Ponsoye and Objet de produciton, Paris. Thanks to Galerie of Marseille (Marseille) and KAISERIN Magazine.
