Presentation of the gallery

After opening and running her first gallery in Barbizon for 20 years, Suzanne Tarasieve moved to Paris in 2003, in the rue Louise Weiss district (13th arrondissement). In 2008, she opened a second space, LOFT 19, offering temporary exhibitions and a residency program to support her foreign artists. In 2011, Suzanne Tarasieve moved her main gallery from the 13th arrondissement to the Marais (Paris), pursuing a goal of representing emerging and established artists, with an international exhibition program evoking the great historical transformations of the twentieth and twenty-first century. The program is developed in collaboration with museums, art centers and curators. The synergy between LOFT 19 and the Galerie du Marais allows Suzanne Tarasieve to produce and present works that range from Neo-expressionism (Markus Lüpertz, Georg Baselitz, A. R. Penck, Jörg Immendorff, Sigmar Polke) to the recent works of her youngest artists. The gallery also represents three renowned photographers: Boris Mikhailov, Juergen Teller and Jürgen Klauke. After the death of Suzanne Tarasieve in December 2022, the gallery was taken over by her four collaborators who continued the work of the now legendary founder.

Presentation of the artist in focus

Known for his large canvases and the originality of his work on colour, Romain Bernini explores the themes of elsewhere and identity. Using imagery inspired by shamanic practices, Romain Bernini comments on his contemporaries' quest for meaning and spirituality. Invited to a residency in Cambodia, at the Ecole Française d'Extrême Orient in Siem Reap, the artist worked with charcoal and black stones on studio rags. The stand will focus on the restitution of the works produced during this residency, shown for the first time.
