Galerie Poggi is delighted to announce Babi Badalov‘s third solo exhibition in its new space. Showcasing almost a hundred of his most recent paintings on fabric, this particularly dense and abundant exhibition multiplies the ways in which these works are displayed, notably through an immersive installation that invites the public to take the time to sit on cushions decorated by the artist and engulf themselves in the paintings that cover the entire walls of the exhibition. The gallery’s reception area features drawings by the artist, as well as a limited-edition T-shirt designed with the artist.
This February’s programme sadly coincides with the anniversary of the start of the war in Ukraine, on February 24th, 2022. The gallery has naturally chosen to offer its Project Space to Ukrainian artist Nikita Kadan, who is presenting several works from the Universal Ruins series, testifying to the universal dimension of the drama unfolding on Europe’s doorstep. A particularly poignant sound work by the artist will be broadcast on Saturday afternoon, February 24th.
Babi Badalov and Nikita Kadan’s exhibitions at the gallery will run from February 9th to March 9th, 2024.
Alongside this exhibition, Babi Badalov will be taking part in a number of other major exhibitions, including his first solo show in Switzerland at the MCBA of Lausanne from February 2nd to April 28th, 2024, as well as with a 15-metre-long fresco at the Centre d’Art Transpalette in Bourges from February 17th to May 5th, 2024 (group show “Salut à toi”), and the group show “L’art et le mot” at Les Abattoirs – Frac Occitanie in Toulouse from February 5th to May 20th, 2024.
