Matisse are you there? 

A performance of Rémi Voche on the occasion of the private exhibition of the graduates 2013 of the Villa Arson.

After what Matisse said* "shouldn't we do a big voyage by plane for the young graduates?" Remi Voche offers a performance to the publics reffering to the big gouaches of the Master as well as to his trips. The territory and the frame of the actions of Remi Voche are envisaged from the ancient place where Matisse worked and lived from 1921 till 1938, 1, place Charles Félix, located on Saleya Cours close to the gallery, to join the quay of the United States and the beach facing the gallery. The contents of performance, formed by numerous expressions and attitudes will call movement, gesture and rhythm, just like the technology of serrated papers. This technology became after Jazz, an autonomous art expression inspiring generations of American and European artists since the fifties. The body of the artist will be entirely covered with big blue papers cut up in scissors, to make wings and to fly off towards the sea. The bodily and artistic practice of Rémi Voche, art of reformulation pushed to the borders of instinct and Matisse's aesthetic body language sharpening in lively in colour find themselves here united by an energy without age, which crosses the time and the history of art on the French riviera.
