The Galerie Di Meo and the Galerie Christophe Gaillard are delighted to announce the Daniel Pommereulle exhibition from June 7th until July 28th 2012.

The artist?s third show at the Galerie Di Meo, which initiated this work back in 1993, will be the first exhibition at the Galerie Christophe Gaillard which from now on officially represents «the Pommereulle Estate». They will be paying a joint tribute to Daniel Pommereulle by presenting, each in their own gallery, both the well-known blade sculptures (Objets de cruauté and Objets de prémonition) and some rare works on paper like those drawn from the Brûlures du ciel series or the sculptures made with atomic glass.

Daniel Pommereulle (1937-2003) leaves a varied, complex and most of all singular and premonitory ?uvre. A rare artist, writer, poet, sculptor and draughtsman as well as a film-maker and actor, his work is full of dazzle, transparency, sharp and cutting, and is yet to be discovered.

After painting his first pictures (Nuages, Spirales), in 1961 he took part in l?Anti-Procès 3 in Milan organized by Jean-Jacques Lebel and later on, starting in 1963, produced assemblages of objects. In 1966, along with the «objectors» to quote Alain Jouffroy?s expression, Pommereulle exhibited a Pêcher en fleur at the Salon de mai, some particularly provocative Objets de tentation at Mathias Fels?, going on to work on plans for the large sculptures of the Urgences series and on the well-known Objets de prémonition (1974-75). As a film-maker and actor, he worked with Godard, Éric Rohmer (he was involved with The Collector) and with Philippe Garrel. He made two films, One More Time (1967) and Vite (1969). We remember his Fin de siècle show at the CNAC - Centre Georges Pompidou in 1975. After that, playing on transparency, Daniel Pommereulle worked on glass, stone and steel. A retrospective was devoted to him at the museums of Dole and Belfort in 1991.

To mark this joint show, a catalogue with an essay by Olivier Kaeppelin is being published by Editions Biffures and Editions Di Meo.
