From 19th September to 2nd October 2018, the exhibition “Objetrium, Le Cloître des Objêtres” will take place at Cloître des Billettes in Paris. Two artists linked with Salon d’Automne will exhibit their works : Abram and Nicole Sottiaux.
The Cloître des Billettes is the only medieval cloister still preserved in the Marais district today. A place particularly adapted to welcome this neo-cubist exhibition. Nicole Sottiaux’ works will be hung on the walls, a set of twenty paintings inspired by Abram’s bronze sculpture entitled Le Pénitent. All of this in a deep relationship with spirituality which has filled the cloister for less than 600 years. Therefore, these “objêtres” – as these artists use the term – want to become icons and try to bring together painting, sculpture and architecture.
