Une exposition simple, dans le meilleur sens du mot: Gabriel Orozco a peint un journal des plantes. Créations de la création, sans ardeur, ou le besoin d’y ajouter d’autre. Une interprétation modeste, consciente, parfois humoriste, parfois sérieuse ; et tout à fait honnête.
Venice Diaries, Episode VII: Ha Chong-Hyun’s paintings need not much description; they need to be seen. His works are an expression of doing it differently, of surpassing the basic strands of art history. A study of material as well as of technique.
