GALERIE TERRITOIRES PARTAGÉS – MARSEILLE / STÉPHANE GUGLIELMET
ARTIST – JEAN BAPTISTE GANNE
The TERRITOIRES PARTAGES gallery leads since 2005 a project of production and sharing the works of artists living in Marseille and the PACA (Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur) Region with the objective to support an artistic emergence on this territory and to allow a wider distribution by crossing the regional border via Turin, the capital of Piemont.
Jean-Baptiste Ganne’s artistic practice can’t be de ned in a single word because not only the artist handles more than a tool : painting, photography, installation, video, performance, but also because his work opens to numerous domains of the hu- man praxis.
Deliberately focused on the social and politics, and rich in a re exion which went deeper thanks to many readings, the work of Ganne builds itself in a narrow relationship with contemporary urban culture. Fine observer of gestures, words, tracks collected throughout his daily progresses, the ar- tist knows how to restore a new and trans gured sense to the elements he caught. In the wear which affects so much our look so heavily requested, Ganne brings into con ict an invigorating review, which a new and original practice of the trans gu- ration makes very ef cient.
