The artist Adrien Vescovi takes then control of the Ponchettes art gallery exhibition place with the purpose to create a project that integrate itself in the story of that place (a gallery dedicated to contemporary art imagined by Matisse and where Noël Dolla and Yves Klein have exhibited) and also in the sociological story (an old fisherman place). At first the canvas and the rope make us think about a boat but quickly the visitor understands that Vescovi tributes the Supports / Surfaces movment. The free making and a thinking painting are marks. Adrien Vescovi recovers materials who seem to have any value (textile, ...) he transfoms (putting togther) and bring them to the light. The light depends of the place he lives (North Europe, South Europe) and of the time he spends for exhibiting them (4 to 6 months). Adrien Vescovi follows the Yves Klein way because he thinks that a canvas isn't something static. He makes a colors paddle by using vegetables or spices he takes in the place he lives but let a big part to hazard. Adrien Vescovi obtains also colors by letting ropes soaking in big jars full of a special juice. The Adrien Vescovi art work sollicitates the memory becsause he works step by step until the end.
