Bas Jan Ader
22 mai - 28 juin 2003
To the characteristics that mark the works of his conceptual contemporaries, Bas Jan Ader adds a very personal element : sober emotion.
'Ader gestures toward the mortal risk and failure inherent in any search for the miraculous or experience of the sublime.' (Bruce Hainley in Legend of the Fall, Artforum, March 1999).
His extreme engagement in the refusal of established codes, his use of the journey as a form of art, continue inspiring and influencing successive generations of artists.
The Galerie Chantal Crousel is proud to present this first gallery exhibition of Bas Jan Ader in France.
