From Feb 23-Apr 8, 2017, Peter Freeman, Inc. presents Le beau danger, Dove Allouche’s second solo exhibition with the gallery in New York, featuring new works from three different series.

The Paris-based artist works in photography, drawing, and printmaking, often employing scientific processes to bring to light otherwise invisible phenomena. In the words of French philosopher Michel Foucault (a short text by whom is also the source of the show’s title), Allouche mines “the invisibility of the too visible.”

In the three series on view here, Allouche explores the question of how art breaks the surface of reality. Though formally abstract, the works result from his empirical investigation into nature, its immanent order amidst the dreadful chaos of the modern world.

Dove Allouche, born in Paris in 1972, attended École Nationale d’Art de Cergy and has received international honors including a recent collaboration with the CRCC (the Centre for Research on Collection Conservation) and CIRVA (the International Glass Research Centre, Marseilles, where he carried out the Funghi project), Villa Médicis in Rome (2011-2012) and grants from Villa Médicis-Hors les Murs (to work in Venezuela, 2006) and Programme à la carte (Norway, A.F.A.A, 2002). His work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at venues including Fondation d’entreprise Ricard, (Paris, 2016), Centre Pompidou (Paris, 2013), and Nomas Foundation (Rome, 2012), and has been included in many group exhibitions including The Sun Placed in the Abyss (Columbus Museum of Art, Ohio, 2016-2017), Double Take (Drawing Room, London, 2016), Sublime, les tremblements du monde (Centre Pompidou Metz, 2016), Réinventons le monde (Sala Relalde, Bilbao, 2013), Les détours de l’imaginaire (Palais de Tokyo, Paris, 2012), La commande contemporaine de la Chalcographie du Louvre (Musée du Louvre, Paris, 2012), and Estudio Abierto (Palacio de Correos, Buenos Aires, 2006).
