Presentation
The 24Beaubourg is very pleased to give carte blanche to Jean-Marie Oger.

Still life. In a consumer society in which every object has to produce a greater well-being, the genre of still life reminds the transitory state of nature and the futility of processes to circumvent their expiry. Like the fruit compositions by Monique de Roux or the future foods by Angélique. By extension, still life can indicate an environment ravaged by disasters. This idea underlies the work of Dutch artist Demiak, exhibited for the first time in Paris. His painted landscapes and sculptures of houses destroyed by hurricanes are some kind of memento mori of our civilization.

Style of life. It echoes the notion elaborated by Alfred Adler (1870-1937), defined like a behavioral mechanism developed by an individual to face up to the external world. The style of life reflects his values, attitudes and worldview.

Through the prism of painters, it comes out as an unveiling of obsession and an attempt to respond to the disorder of contemporary life: Michael Bastow and the contemplation of feminine body, Sergio Ceccoti and the metropolitan anxiety, Pierre Lamalattie and the alienation at work, Ray Richardson and the cinematographic self-reconstruction, Francine Van Hove and the delectation to enjoy unproductive moments of life.
