Ricochette

For its second show, Le Berceau is pleased to present "Ricochette" by Anne Bourse & Cécile Bourffard. Their works, for each of them, are related to either everyday tools, like a bed or a lamp for Bourse, or to a rarer object like the bezoar (a stone-like mass often found in the gastrointestinal system of a mammal) for Bouffard. Between softness and hardness, recognition of the object and anomaly, the two artistic approaches also cultivate the sensation of touch and grip. "Ricochette" thus fits perfectly into this intimate environment embodied by Le Berceau, a ghostly private place left half empty.

Cécile Bouffard, detail, Sacrificielle (6), 2021

Sitting on his sofa, the detective ricochets in his head to solve the enigma. Packaged objects, tossed from one window to another, the message gets through. Obsession, hand movement, back and forth, from scribbling to scratching, Anne Bourse (*1982, live and work in Paris)’s works, everyday objects, a bed, a curtain, a lamp, marked with the imprint of the pen until softness becomes pain, or the opposite. Hello, yes, talk to me, tell me. The hand’s brain disconnects, each one lives its own life. Cécile Bouffard (*1987, live and work in Paris)’s work likes to create confusion. What is this thing? Comforting, soft but hard form, functional contours but not a wink, witchcraft. The clues accumulate, the perception shifts to the other side, to the familiar, the strange or the uncomfortable. To the body but also to the brain, they fit inside, with its curves slip, to the envy of burning the wings.
