may 1st 2017

"Aïni à tiroirs ouverts"

Published by Art dans l'Air.

Subscription for a biography-book of Aïni

"Philippe Aïni put down his bags, his woks and his collections in a village in Aude, near Lagrasse, Servies-en-Val, which now hosts the art center he created, La coop-art (open every day untill end of october). Philippe Aïni creates but loves life above all and what goes with it: meets, women, experiences. He gives himself up frankly in a testimony-book which tells about a few decades out of an uncommon life.
Several books already exist about the artist works, but "Aïni à tiroirs ouverts" will be the first testimony about his life.
The works of Philippe Aïni got into the most renown expressionist art collections in France. In the area, we can see his works in the Cérès Franco collection in Montolieu (11), in the Fernand Michelmuseum-workshop in Montpellier, and in his own art center."

This book (in french), of about 150 pages, will be edited in 1000 copies, of which 100 only will carry an orginal work of the artist on the cardboard front cover. Those 100 copies are sold directly by the artist, by subscription, at 80 € each.

The book (in french) will also be sold in bookshops, with a cardboard front cover too but without the original art wok, at the price of 12 €
(Editions Art dans l'Air, ISBN : 978-2-9559184-0-1).

50 years ago precisely, on july the 20th of 1969, we walked on the Moon for the first time. « A small step for man, one giant leap for mankind » that was the completion of a scientific quest. It was an aesthetic adventure as well, fondamentally poetic.

Ten years sooner, the soviet mission Luna 3 managed to take the forst picture of the dark side of the Moon. That same year, Cérès Franco, young Bresilian settled in Paris, starts an origninal art critic carreer. To the trendy plastic artists, essentially abstracts, she prefers unconventionnal creators. Their works are singular, naive, popular, fantastic, expressive.

And if those invetions reflected an unrecognized aspect of our art history: The formation of a shape vocabulary based on cosmos, of trained men and of instruments designed to conquer it?

The painters and sculptors presented in this exhibitionsublimate the figure of astronauts and their equipement, the sideral landscapes matter, the aliens looks. And renew the representation of divinities supposed to wander outland.
