ALL WILL BE FORGOTTEN

(Tutto sarà dimenticato)
Exhibition of illustrations by Pierre Marquès
for the book Tout sera oublié, produced by Mathias Énard
presentation by Angelo Bertani
with the participation of Mathias Énard and Pierre Marquès

In our shallow present-day, there is always the risk of images being interpreted superficially, creating a facile emotion or a cursory aesthetic. We often forget the fact that images, and especially those generated by the arts, are in reality a product of the memory, not of the moment of perception, which is only a trigger.
The plates by Pierre Marquès for Tout sera oublié by Mathias Énard resemble the pages of a diary of reflections in an itinerary of consciousness in certain circles of contemporary hell: they are plates for an impossible monument/admonition if the present-day continues to be devoid of consciousness; they are, on the other hand, images for a collective memory if we truly want to gain a responsible understanding of our history.


 

The exhibition will be open until 3 April at the following times:
– Tuesday to Saturday: 9.30 am-1.00 pm and 2.30 pm-6.00 pm (Saturday until 7.00 pm)
– Sunday: 10.30 am-12.30 am and 4.00-7.00 pm


 

Pierre Marquès

Pierre Marquès was born in Béziers, France in 1970 and since 1998 has lived and worked in Barcelona. His artistic production includes painting, stencils, classic drawing, visual poetry, photography, installations, urban art and videos.
Parallel to this, the artist has worked on historical memory through landscapes.
He has held exhibitions in major European and international galleries.
He has collaborated with Mathias Énard, illustrating his books Bréviaire des artificiers (Italian translation: Breviario per aspiranti terroristi, 2009), Mangée Mangée, Un conte balkanique et terrifique (2009) and Tout sera oublié (2013).
He is currently working on a new painting project that focuses on the issues of climate change and its consequences on the environment and the way we live.
