Luc Joly et Michel Butor: Dialogues Simultanés
November 13th -December
Dubner Moderne is pleased to announce that from November 13th until December
22nd 2012, the gallery will be exhibiting a selection of "Dialogues Simultanés" works
by the Swiss painter Luc Joly and the French writer Michel Butor. At the same time as
the exhibition in Lausanne, the Galerie de la Grenette of the City of Sion, in
conjunction with the Fellini Foundation, will also be exhibiting a retrospective of this
seminal body of work from November 9th until December 23rd .
For over 27 years Michel Butor and Luc Joly have regularly engaged each other in a
playful creative exchange, that combines their respective literary voice and artistic
brush. Aptly named "Dialogues Simultanés", this body of over 400 works is a lively
and imaginative conversation between writer and painter. During collaborative
sessions Butor and Joly alternatively apply their thoughts, on a variety of paper and
cardboard, and allow each other's texts and brushstrokes to animate their
spontaneous discourse. In line with the Cobra movement, the "Dialogues Simultanés"
are a magnificent intercourse between text and image that plays on the
complementary and contradictory stimuli of the meaning of the words and the
absolute freedom of sight.
On Saturday November 24th, Dubner Moderne invites you to the Vernissage of the
"Dialogues Simultanés" at the gallery from 11 am to 5 pm.
