Presentation of the gallery
"When Flowers Save Us" defends a new vision of the art gallery.
Conceptual and nomadic, she creates unique events and artistic experiences on the theme of flowers, plants and more broadly nature.
Committed, it presents works by emerging artists, as well as established ones, to welcome both beginner and experienced collectors.
Responsible, she uses her sales to finance the distribution of flowers to the most disadvantaged via the association she created.
Presentation of the artist in focus
Trained at the Ecole Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Nantes and holder of a Master's degree in Art, Creation and Research in Madrid, Françoise Vanneraud has been interested for several years in the subjective perception of time and space through a questioning of the notions of exile, territory, memory and lived time. Formally, her work revolves around drawing, a medullary practice from which she embarks on a perpetual exercise of expansion towards other registers of presentation, such as sculpture, objects and installations. In this way, drawing becomes his first working tool, allowing him to experiment and try different methods of relationship between the viewer and the works. The notion of landscape being a central element of her practice, she uses drawing to carry out an analysis of the territory with a strong poetic component.
His works are interested in the boundaries between the visible and the invisible, the tangible and the random, the coming and going, to finally question the causes and effects that convert, or even transfigure, the landscape into territory. The drawing here is not intended to be a simple trace on paper but rather a strategy of accumulation that approaches the three-dimensionality of the physical world of objects. Landscape, territory, memory and time come together in these images, which are also an echo through the drawn gesture of what does not seem to be in them: the presence of a human being.
