✒️ farnood esbati life lines (main gallery)
The artist Farnood Esbati (Teheran, 1993) was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome since childhood. It's now known that this characterization, instead of reducing the individual to their neurodiversity, actually opens the door to a field of otherness that remains to be fully explored.
Esbati’s work, much like the books he continuously accumulates, thus appear as refined yet enigmatic transcriptions of his perception of the world. An irreducibly unique universe where invisible currents and undulations take as much, if not more, space than the elements they connect.
His ink drawings on paper, recently discovered by the Iranian artistic community, are therefore unveiled for the very first time to the public through this monographic exhibition dedicated to him.

? how I would like myself to "be" (the bridge)
curator: marc donnadieu
The exhibition how I would like myself to ‘be’ is inspired by the polysemy of uses and meanings of the word “être” (‘to be’ in French): “to exist,” “to live,” all equally nominatives signifying “individual” or even “identity.” By engaging in a dialogue between works of art brut and contemporary art —especially those by performance artists from the 1960s-1980s — Marc Donnadieu, the curator of the exhibition, sheds light on how the diverse use of the photographic tool allows the world to see multiple, transient, or definitive existences and identities.
With artworks of Marcel Bascoulard, Anna et Bernhard Blume, Jorge Alberto Cadi, Luciano Castelli, José Manuel Egea, Le Fétichiste (anonyme), Michel Journiac, Henry Lewis, Tomasz Machciński, M A R S (Nathan Carter, Dan Estabrook & Mercedes Jelinek), MOHROR, Pierre Molinier, David Newman, Gaston Paris, Luboš Plný, Arnulf Rainer and Decebal Scriba.
