The Mediterranean and Paris, two words which are opposites but which, unusually, will come together from 7 to 10 June at 2, Galerie Vivienne. Behind this sleight of hand are Johanna Colombatti and Graziella Semerciyan, founders of the online gallery Lebensformen. Méditerranée is the name of their next exhibition, presented on this occasion at the gallery of designer friend Pierre Gonalons. A theme chosen to evoke a part of their considerable and shared taste for all the imagery that it evokes. Because if Lebensformen is developing a year-round online selection called La Galerie des Possibles, the two former curators also offer, every two months, an exhibition curated by them in which they blend works and scenography created by a contemporary artist. Before Méditerranée, there was Mélancolie, on the impermanence of being, and also Motifs, Rythmes et Couleurs, deployed in situ before joining the “cultural review” area the young women wanted. A richly detailed content, structured along three axes: a portrait of the chosen designer in the form of a Proust questionnaire, a meeting-event and an interactive library. To put into context the online art trade by providing key reading materials – essential to the dimensions of ownership and sharing – isn’t this what was ultimately missing in the current offer to bring together a real community? The continuation of the Lebensformen adventure will tell us.
