Gaëlle Choisne: TEMPLE OF LOVE—Adorable

Gaëlle Choisne's TEMPLE OF LOVE—Adorable intersects several recent bodies of work by the Paris-based artist in her first solo exhibition in the United States. Choisne creates an experience of sculptural objects, color, light and sound that entangles the sensual and the political, playing with modulations in scale to reward our attention to smaller gestures among the grander ones.

Centered around periodic performances of Haitian composer Carmen Brouard’s 1966 piano and violin work Sonate Vaudouesque, the exhibition takes Brouard's musical exploration of Creolization as a proposition that animates the elements of the installation. Chance, passion, alchemy, poetry, philosophy and magic come into equal play in Choisne’s vibrant, lithe aesthetic universe. The musical performances are made possible through a partnership with the Center for Innovation and Community Impact at The Colburn School, Los Angeles.

Choisne (b. 1985, Paris) graduated from the National School of Fine Arts of Lyon, and recently held residencies at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam and the Cité internationale des arts in Paris. Her work has been featured in exhibitions at the Musée d’art moderne de la Ville de Paris (2018), Beirut Art Center for the 13th Sharjah Biennial (2017), MAC Lyon (2016), the Lyon Biennial (2015). Solo exhibitions include Gaëlle Choisne: Temple of Love at Betonsalon (2018).
