with Gilles Teboul / solo show

In his latest series, Gilles Teboul continues to keep a distance from the painter’s gesture. In his previous series, he proceeded by retreat, by subtraction, by what he called the « non gesture », erasing part of the matter which covered his canvases and thus causing the undercoat of paint to rise to the surface.

With his recent paintings, he goes as far as abolishing any gestural implication of the artist in the production. The paintings are placed flat on shims in equilibrium. Teboul lets the paint pour onto and spread out over the canvas without intervening in its movement.

VOLTA, Basel's art fair for new international positions, debuted in 2005 as a collaboration between dealers and friends. The aim was to secure a platform for international galleries beyond young art stalwart Liste and market heavyweight Art Basel. Concerns and aspirations of the exhibiting gallerists have been first and foremost since VOLTA's inception; in combination with the curatorial mind of Artistic Director Amanda Coulson, eclectic and dynamic presentations with a strong focus on solo presentations find a stage as refined as at the main fair.
