Gerasimos Floratos

Hymn, oct-nov 2022, Boisgeloup

Almine Rech Gallery and FABA are delighted to announce the exhibition Hymn by Gerasimos Floratos in Picasso’s historic sculpture studio at Château de Boisgeloup, Gisors, France.

Adjacent to Floratos’ Brussels show, the Boisgeloup exhibition includes many sculptures relating to a selection of paintings.

The title of the exhibition, Hymn, might surprise some at first, but the sculptures do have a sonic quality. They seem to be singing, shouting, or speaking. The artist leaves his works to open interpretation, like the mouths of his figures.
Floratos wholeheartedly believes that facial recognition is a crucial neural ability that allows us to survive in cities. The brain is capable of deciphering a fake smile from an honest one, a sincere word from irony.
His paintings bear a similar ambiguity.


- Anne Dressen, curator at Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris
