Espace à louer: Virginia Ryan

4 May - 26 June 2014 ABIDJAN

Galerie Cécile Fakhoury is pleased to present Espace à louer, a solo show by the artist Virginia Ryan in Abidjan.


‘L’espace à louer’ is an available space, of which we can take possession, in which we can move around, in where stories can be read and written. While discovering those tall-sized works floating in the space of the gallery, your look might get a little bit lost, but suddenly when you move forward, you will recognize famous characters, images already seen somewhere and cinema icons. Those art works are not ordinary paintings; their medium and subject are films posters from the 60s to the 90s, coming from a movie theater once established in Grand-Bassam.
