TWO SHOWS: Mireille Loup, Botto e Bruno

TWO SHOWS: Mireille Loup, Botto e Bruno

2008-11-08 until 2008-12-06 // Galerie Magda Danysz // Paris, France

Two shows this month at the Gallery Magda Danysz in Parisare on view from November 10, 2008 until December 6, 2008. Since its creation in 1980, the month of photography has strongly contributed to earning Paris the status of photography capital. This event is the opportunity for the Magda Danysz Gallery to present 2 solo shows : the talented photo and video artist Mireille Loup and the polyvalent italian duo Botto e Bruno. Mireille Loup's latest work for the first time, including the Night Time or Lost boys series, as well as a part of her MEM (read-only memory) project. Botto e Bruno are just back from the Château d'Eau, where they presented a giant panoramic photograph at the Printemps de Semptembre in Toulouse.

Mireille Loup's photographs are full of a certain shyness ad modesty, they show things without ever naming them. In the Nocturnes ou les garçons perdus series, she brings us into an oneiric world. Two young boys, probably lost, are wandering through a peotry-filled universe. You can find traces of Peter Pan's Neverland, but without Captain Hook, just the essence of it. Mireille Loup brushes aside the obvious suffering and invites us to take a walk amidst tales and children's dreams. The unreal light and colors add to the imaginary aspect of the photos, sometimes creating a theatrical fake cardboard set effect.

Mireille Loup's curriculum is impressive. This photographer, videographer, and writer has exposed in numerous galeries and institutions in France, Belgium, Portugal, Greece, Canada and the United States. You can find her photographs in public collections such as the French National Fund for Contemporary Art. She represents the new generation of artists who manages to grasp reality and transcend it with commitment. Mireille Loup choses to talk to us about childhood and Men with catharsis and resilience.
