Appreciation towards PEJAC for providing the following description:

2018年6月20日至24日,艺术家Pejac举办了他的第三次国际个展Waterline。这次展览位于巴黎,是既伦敦和威尼斯后的又一次成功个展,展示了艺术家许多未公开的作品,吸引了来自全球各地的收藏家和艺术爱好者。其中有八幅限定画作加入了慈善抽奖系统,用以筹资支持当地志愿者组织的环境保护工作。

Earlier this year, between 20th-24th of June 2018 to be precise, Pejac hosted his 3rd self-produced international showcase, Waterline. After a successful solo exhibition in London and a special presentation in Venice, the artist chose Paris for the next destination to present previously unseen body of work. The response to the show was exceptional, with collectors and fans flying in from around the globe, including China, Japan, US, Russia and around Europe. The exhibition also marked the release of the artist’s 8th limited edition that was available through the charitable lottery system which helped to raise money to support the work of locally based environmental NGO Good Planet.

Waterline没有经过长期的策划,更像是艺术家的灵光一现。当Pejac在工作室里为纽约的亮相埋头苦干的时候,他重拾了一些过去的草图和画作,认为是时候将它们公之于众,于是就有了这次展览。约30幅原创画作让观众得以近距离欣赏他从未公开的创作过程。

Waterline wasn’t necessarily planned in long-term but was more of a spontaneous gesture by the artist. As he was working in his studio, preparing work for the upcoming US debut in NY, Pejac rediscovered some of his older concepts, sketches, and drawings, and felt like it was time to share those with the public for the 1st time. Usually quite reserved when it comes to revealing his process, he decided to provide us with a look at the most intimate and unmediated part of his work process exhibiting around 30 original works on paper.

在巴黎举办展览一直是艺术家的梦想。在上一次游览巴黎后,他把这座位于巴黎圣母院边的老游船锁定为了展览举办地。正是这些历史船只构成了人们所熟知的巴黎,艺术家保留其原有的氛围,将老船改造成了一个充满艺术气息的集会场。

Proud of his French heritage the artist always dreamed of showcasing his art in the “city of lights”. During one of his recent visits to the French capital, he spotted this old “péniche” boat moored right next to the iconic Notre-Dame cathedral and fell in love with the idea of setting up an exhibition on such exquisite location. He decided to pay respect to these historic vessels that helped to build Paris into what we know today by repurposing the old inland waterway barge into an art venue.

展品中既有艺术家的早期画作,也有他最近的巨幅作品,展现了其高超的作画技巧。此外,Pejac还创造了两个富有冲击力而又充满隐喻意味的雕塑和表演装置。一个是位于船头的石井,完全还原真实尺寸;另一个装置是一架下面摆满工具的钢琴,钢琴家打扮成修理工演奏。这两个作品同时反映了环境议题和社会阶级的崩塌,将工作室作品中反复出现的主题上升到了现实生活之中。

In addition to the large body of work that included a couple of early drawings as well as most recent large-size pieces that hold the high quality of his intricate canvas pieces, Pejac constructed 2 subtle yet striking sculptural and performance installations. One was a full-size realistic stone water well on the front of the boat, and another was a piano with tools scattered underneath, played by a pianist dressed up as a mechanic. Commenting on both environmental topics and social issue of clashes between classes, these 2 pieces provided a channel for recurring themes from the studio works to transcend into real life.
