Fabienne Levy

Fabienne Levy opens a second gallery in Geneva. The mission of this space will be to act as an extension of the main gallery simultaneously presenting the same artist. It is on the one hand, to give greater visibility to the work of my artists, and on the other hand to try to bring the cultural world of the two cities closer together.

FABIENNE LEVY is pleased to present, for the opening of this second location, a new exhibition by Vanessa Safavi. The artist works with a variety of materials with a predominance for all types of rubber, often returning to post-minimalist practices. It invites unexpected materials such as silicone, calling on the heritage of “soft sculpture” or the “Antiform” movement, which uses industrial materials in a more sensitive way. Safavi also displays a respect for cultural references dating back to antiquity. By translating ancient techniques and symbols, the artist associates them with her own personal stories. She explores and questions the contemporary identity of the body and its impact on our hyper-organized societies, which has definitely led her to a complex and vulnerable fragility. His new work in bronze and glass underlines, with humor and seriousness, the often trivialized importance of the intimate parts of the body.

Ben Arpéa, Solo Show

11.05 – 31.07.23

Vernissage dans le cadre de la Nuit des Bains, 11.05.23, 18h-21h

FABIENNE LEVY est heureuse de présenter une nouvelle exposition de Ben Arpéa. Issu d’une famille de collectionneurs et de marchands d’art, Ben Arpea a grandi dans un univers artistique riche et c’est donc tout naturellement qu’il se passionne pour l’art. Autodidacte, il s’est d’abord initié au design en créant des lampes et des objets artisanaux à partir de matériaux élémentaires tels que le béton, avant de se tourner vers le dessin et la peinture.
Ses peintures abstraites composées de formes géométriques colorées sont inspirées par des peintres modernes, tels que Miro, qu’il admire particulièrement. La particularité de Ben Arpea est de peindre sur des toiles de jute et de lin sans cadre, accentuant le côté brut de son style. Par l’assemblage de formes géométriques, ses œuvres sont chaleureuses et spontanées.
