Event Details

Adrien Vescovi presents at the Studio Fotokino pieces that he created originally for the exhibition “La Mesure du Monde” at the RMCA of Sérignan in 2019. Placed on the ground, recomposed our space, they will be presented to visitors as a playground to be walked through (in socks), on which the light of the space will reveal shapes and colors. This installation will be accompanied by an original publication produced for the occasion.



Adrien Vescovi has been living and working in Marseille since 2017, after a long period spent in the mountains of the Haute-Savoie region. Through his paint work, influenced by architecture and nature, Vescovi interrogates the notion of the “free canvas,” placing this in dialogue with more contemporary issues. The context in which the artist installs his work is one of his main subjects of study. It’s through this context that Adrien creates his own temporalities, bringing together colours that have been created by the air (sun rays, moonlight, snow, pollution), the earth (plants and ochre) and fire (cooking and firing). He has made chance his friend and his idiosyncratic sewing is in itself a kind of painting.

Born in 1981 and a graduate of the École supérieure d’art de l’agglomération d’Annecy, his work has been shown across the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark and Mexico. In 2017, he had a residency at the Cyclops in Milly-en-Forêt where he later exhibited his work. In 2019, his work was shown at the Galerie des Ponchettes in Nice in collaboration with MAMAC, at the Villa Noailles for its International Festival of Fashion, Photography and Fashion Accessories, as well as at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris for the exhibition “Futur, ancien, fugitif” (Future, Former, Fugitive), as well as at the Vieille Charité in Marseille and at the Musée Régional d'Art Contemporain Occitanie in Sérignan. His work appears most notably in the collections of the Centre National des Arts Plastiques, the Musée d’Art Moderne et d’Art Contemporain de Nice, the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Nantes, Frac Provence Alpes Côtes d’Azur and in the Fond Communal d’Art Contemporain of the city of Marseille. Adrien Vescovi is currently artist-in-residence at the ateliers de la ville de Marseille until the end of 2020.
