Dark Matter, Abdelkader Benchamma

After « Draw ! » exhibition in 2002, the galerie du jour agnès b. presents Dark Matter, second Abdelkader Benchamma’s exhibition.
Abdelkader Benchamma is constantly renewing his sources of inspiration and reflection, enriching his central themes and his graphic vocabulary with references to engraving, painting, and printing techniques, as well as to landscape or scientific images. In this exhibition he goes farther down routes mapped out in previous work, while giving them new dimensions and suggesting new directions.
Abstract elements, pure graphic evocations which attempt to render that which, by its very nature cannot be shown, are in increasing evidence, to the detriment of more figurative elements. These last however, still crop up in places (with the notable exception of the characters) to better question their reality, their existence, their status and most importantly, how we perceive them.
The artist, who believes that all creation begins with drawing, uses the Dark Matter project to affirm the legitimacy of drawing as a medium. At the same time he confirms his desire to go beyond drawing's inherent qualities - two-dimensional and fixed - in order to be able to transfer his mental images en masse or give them movement through sculptures and live events.
Sources of fascinating and (meta)physical explorations, the works of Abdelkader Benchamma disturb our senses, throw us up against our limitations, and alter our minds, creating disruptions as pleasurable as they are profitable.
