Archives Guillaume Constantin — L’accident des formes Past: June 14 → July 26, 2014 Guillaume Constantin is undeniably a sculptor. He is a sculptor in the sense that his whole work questions the plasticity of things — objects as well as concepts, that is to say the way they can receive and absorb the “shape’s accidents”.
Archives Grégory Derenne — Un air d’aujourd’hui Past: April 17 → May 31, 2014 The Bertrand Grimont Gallery exhibits Grégory Derenne’s new paintings. On that occasion, the artist will be present and art critique Hector Obalk will do a presentation.
Archives Thomas Mailaender — Essayer. Rater. Essayer encore. Rater encore. Rater mieux. Past: November 28 → December 30, 2013 Ceramics is an ancestral technique which bears in itself the child’s pleasure of playing with clay, and the more concluding pleasure of creating a perfect form which resists to the crucible of the firing. Both an amateur and a pro, Thomas Mailaender empowers himself with a sound technical mastery.
Archives Empty lines Past: September 12 → October 19, 2013 The exhibited works show their uniqueness in their ability of making themselves visible and having their own existence.The hyphenated repertoire of the artists — painting-sculpture for Rana, sculpture-design for Nathaniael, and sculpture-architecture as for Paul revitalize the idea of a crossing, of a given hand to movement, reaching the corners of space.
Archives Smile Forever — Olivier Metzger Past: June 1 → July 27, 2013 The gallery present a new exhition from Olivier Metzger. Between a new kind of documentary and fictional narrative, we follow a complex and endearing character who leads us to her favourite haunts, now become scenery, in Europe or on the other side of the Atlantic.
Archives Patrick Bernatchez — Fraction II Past: November 10 → December 15, 2012 A horse and black rider advance and turn circles in a blizzard. Slowly moving into visibility, the couple seems to belong to an indeterminable period. Is this an errant rider of the apocalypse, a lost 20th century explorer, a future wanderer on a barren planet? No way to know, for these figures are fundamentally anachronistic, born of a time out of joint.
Archives Déduction — Jean-François Leroy Past: September 8 → October 25, 2012 Jean-François Leroy begins with the plane. What we call a “plane” in geometry is a two-dimensional space that can stretch out infinitely and has no theoretical thickness. For Jean-François Leroy, the wood is used as a common and convenient material, rather than for its possible connotations. It has only one meaning: “the plane”.
Archives Brainbow, une proposition de Bertrand Grimont et Le Châlet Past: May 30 → July 13, 2012 What is extraordinary about neurones is that they are essentials to us and yet go beyond our senses. The Brainbow imagery system makes neuronal connections visible : they appear as pixels, color dots that nothing but piling up and looking from a distance can reveal as a consistent whole.
Archives Grégory Derenne — Sunlights Past: May 12 → June 7, 2012 The subtle contrast between light and dark gives birth to chiaroscuro. In order to capture these subtleties, Grégory Derenne slips backstage on TV sets and steps into churches. Investing in these sites as if they were pictoral subjects, he plays with the intensity of light to reveal or not their intrinsic elements. …
Archives Hughes Rochette & Nathalie Brevet — Le temps d’après Past: March 10 → April 28, 2012 Common in both natural and urban environments, the debris is the notion around which Nathalie Brevet and Hughes Rochette have based their exhibit. Its title is emblematic of their approach : in their scavenging, the two artists collected and chose objects that have come to the end of their functional life, but begin the fictional part of it, as a shape.
Archives Sans commune mesure Past: January 14 → February 25, 2012 The group exhibition “Sans commune mesure” brings together artists who draw their inspiration in the framework of the formal and theoretical disciplines using measurement. From drawing to sculpture, via collage, the works presented share an interest for conception and construction and go about these topics with a peculiarity applied in many fields.
Archives Thomas Mailaender Past: November 5 → December 15, 2011 Bertrand Grimont announces Thomas Mailaender’s solo show in the atypical space of the gallery.
Archives Vincent Mauger — Solutions techniques à des problèmes théoriques Past: September 10 → October 30, 2011 On septembre 10th a new proposition by Vincent Mauger will take place in the Gallery Bertrand Grimont’s atypical space.
Archives Body No/body Past: May 14 → July 31, 2011 The group show Body No/body explores parts of a territory and myth associated with certain representations of the human body in contemporary practices.

Archives Guillaume Constantin — Un nuage d’incertitudes Past: March 12 → April 29, 2011 Bertrand Grimont presents Guillaume Constantin.
Archives Cyril Hatt & Bertrand Planes — Révélations Past: January 8 → February 26, 2011 The world is filled with objects of desire that quickly vanish before our eyes. Eaten away by the banality of use, they become transparent. Consumer goods embeded in the everyday life, they pass from one state to the other before being discarded. Their loud presence dwindles into a white noise.
Archives Vilnius, Odessa, Liège Past: November 6 → December 31, 2010 Between the realms of news reporting and personal work, Thomas Manneke threads within their very dividing line. The artist grabs the city’s heart: its official and less official architecture, its young or older dwellers and anything that happens between those. The photographer captures reality, the backstreets as much as the historical and grandiloquent monuments.
Archives D’une chose, l’autre Past: September 18 → October 30, 2010 Any piece shown here is novel, a recent work as they say, but at the same time it’s not new. This warning borders on the absurd, but it’s truly around the overpowering expectation of novelty and the paradoxical belief that what is new is necessarily original, that Jean-François Leroy has worked towards this exhibition.
Archives Théorème Past: June 9 → July 31, 2010 L’exposition proposée à la Galerie Bertrand Grimont ne répond pas à une question clairement formulée dont elle en serait l’illustration. Fonctionnant sur un mode d’affinités électives, le choix des œuvres constitue moins le scénario d’une exposition qu’il évoque une structure moléculaire.
Archives Aï Kitahara — When a place is moving Past: March 27 → May 22, 2010 Travaillant le plus souvent à partir d’un territoire, d’un « étant-donné » pour emprunter l’expression de Paul Ardenne, Aï Kitahara explore les notions de limites sous toutes leurs formes. Elle développe une recherche rhizomique autour de la frontière, celle-ci protégeant autant qu’elle emprisonne…
Archives Gregory Derenne Past: January 18 → March 13, 2010 Grégory Derenne, s’intéresse à des lieux généralement associés à une sociabilité artificielle et formatée, vitrines, cafés à la mode, plateaux de télévision, dont il capture l’atmosphère par la photographie, et qu’il peint ensuite à main levée sur des toiles de coton noir…
Archives Olivier Metzger — Nightshot Past: November 7, 2009 → January 15, 2010 Olivier Metzger retient de ses errances suburbaines quelques halos aléatoires, quelques rencontres incongrues ou signes phosphorescents. De ses longs travellings à l’attention flottante, le photographe nous livre des « plans » sans raccord autre que son intuition.
Archives Patrick Bernatchez — Chrysalides Past: September 10 → October 31, 2009 Patrick Bernatchez puise son inspiration dans différentes sources — le cinéma, l’imagerie populaire, la musique — et nous livre une sorte d’opéra postmoderne à la fois merveilleux, exubérant et angoissant.
Archives Label Hypothèse — Nous ne vieillirons pas ensemble Past: June 24 → August 1, 2009 Based on an initiative of the hypothèse label group, “nous ne vieillirons pas ensemble” is an exhibition without a theme. It brings together different generations of artists, whose production methods question both the notion of authorship and the different modes in which artworks exist.
Archives Linda Sanchez — Ritournelles et déhanchements Past: May 16 → June 21, 2009 Le travail de Linda Sanchez prend des formes variées (dessin, vidéo, sculpture, installation, performance) : ces productions sont toutefois « reliées » par les textes, notes et archives qui les documentent presque systématiquement.
Archives Damien Sorrentino Past: March 28 → May 8, 2009 La démarche de Damien Sorrentino Florentz, « artiste-chercheur », se compose de ramifications diverses et se nourrit de différents champs d’actions, tels que l’astrophysique, l’acoustique, l’architecture, la géopolitique, la cartographie. L’artiste questionne notre humanité et les territoires qui la traversent.
Archives Cyril Hatt Past: December 13, 2008 → March 21, 2009 La stéréophotographie est un procédé qui permet de créer l’illusion du relief en superposant deux photographies prises d’un même objet ou lieu, mais à partir de points de vue légèrement différents, recréant la distance entre les deux yeux.
