Pauline Fondevila defines the proposal for the wall at Moss as a time to fly. A series of sentences with a poetical touch, words to fly, to sing, to take us to a country of imagination. Sentences that are part of drawings, compositions made with the gesture of the artist having in mind the joy for escapism.
Three spaces -three walls- present us the option to define a temporality and a sequence. Pauline Fondevila thinks about the wall as a possible song, as a multilayered musical situation that can be full of sounds and details following a melody. The drawings can be seen from a distance and will include some details that can be discovered with a closer look. Three sentences and a melody, a composition to be seen and to feel.
Pauline Fondevila (b. 1972, Le Havre, France) studied literature and art. She lived in Barcelona for a few years, and in 2007 she moved to Rosario, Argentina where she still resides. Her works belong to numerous private and public collections, and they are regularly displayed in international exhibitions and fairs. Since 2005 she has been represented by Estrany de la Mota Gallery (Barcelona) and more recently by Diego Obligado (Rosario). She is dedicated to drawing, but she also writes short novels. She has published “A House and a Drum” (2014) and “Five Days in Colón City” (2018), both by the publishing house Ivan Rosado. She is part of the music band Perro Fantasma. Her piece “The Promise by the Sea,” presented at Momentum10, first appeared in 2010 in France, as part of the Le Havre Biennale. Since then, it has been displayed in diverse contexts (festivals, exhibitions, cultural and sports events,) landscapes (seas, lakes, rivers, canals) and languages (French, Flemish, Italian, Spanish.)
