To evoke the work of Ida Tursic & Wilfried Mille is first of all to talk about painting. For fifteen years, the duo of artists has raised the medium to the rank of subject of their work. A work that lies between abstraction and figuration so much it is not the painted object that defines the painting. We know their taste for long titles tinged with mystery. Remember their exhibition “Elizabeth Taylor in a landscape, painting nature’s beauty and the caress of the smirking sun over the mountains” at the Almine Rech gallery almost a year ago. The exhibition organized at the Fondation de l’entreprise Ricard is no exception to the rule. From 23 May to 1 July, she invites her followers to discover “Bianco Bichon, Nero Madonna e altre distruzioni liriche”, a “love letter to painting” where, in an unusual and jubilant mixture, the bichon and the Madonna meet on canvases often far from conventions. To celebrate the inauguration of the project, Colette Barbier invited professionals and art connoisseurs to discover the exhibition curated by Andrea Viliani on Monday 22 May. Among them, Jérôme Sans, Marie Maertens or art critic Éric Troncy, all came to experience the “lyrical destruction” characteristic of Ida Tursic & Wilfried Mille’s pictorial approach. A must see.
