About 让 杜布菲

讓·杜布菲(1901-1985)在他十七歲的時候便開始作畫,其後曾短暫就讀於巴黎朱利安美術學院。七年後,他放棄了繪畫成了一名酒商。上世紀三十年代期間,他再度拾回畫筆,進行了一段短暫的創作,直至1942年重新開展他的藝術生涯,杜布菲才真正成為一位戰後歐洲繪畫史中傑出的創新者。杜布菲對於藝術狂放風格和原始人物形象, 像是山頂洞人亦或現代塗鴉的起源, 都有著相當大的興趣,從而在他的作品可以看到這種仿效直接的表述方法和充滿稚氣的風格。四十年代初期他所創作的那些顏色鮮艷的油畫,其後很快就以非正統的材料所取替,如水泥、石膏、焦油和瀝青刮抹,雕刻和切割以繪制一條基本的、隨心而發的線。讓·杜布菲自1967年起加入佩斯。

Press Release

  • TEFAF New York

    Pace Gallery is pleased to participate for the first time in TEFAF New York with an exhibition dedicated to the 20th-century master Jean Dubuffet. Pace’s presentation features work from a number of Dubuffet’s seminal series from the 1960s, 70s, and 80s, including L’ Hourloupe, Sites aux Figurines, Psycho-Sites, and Brefs exercices d’école journalière. Drawing together an incisive selection of Dubuffet’s work across media—including paintings, works on paper, and sculpture—the exhibition captures the relentlessly innovative and daring spirit that has fueled the artist’s enduring legacy.

    In addition to paintings and sculpture from L’ Hourloupe, Pace will also present a film of Coucou Bazar—a performance piece that the artist created as part of the L’Hourloupe cycle. It contains paintings and objects enlivened by dancers adorned in costumes created by Dubuffet. In complement to the film, three performances will take place at the fair on May 2, 4, and 5, when visitors will encounter a character moving throughout the first and second floors of the Armory. The presentation at TEFAF marks Coucou Bazar’s first return to New York since 1973, when it made its world-premiere on the occasion of the artist’s retrospective at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

    About Coucou Bazar Dubuffet said: “Its author is a painter, not a playwright nor a choreographer; painting is the only inspiration; it is like a development of painting, animation of it. It’s like a painting that would cease to be just a picture to watch, but that would take real existence and welcome you in…”
