Exhibition “The Roots of Heaven”

Fanny Alloing is fascinated by the body since her childhood. Very young, she practiced the dance in an intensive way.
In her sculptures, we find the body, the bodies. She says that they are “the expression of the soul”. She makes us understand in a poetic way the moment, the life, the presence she experiences in an intense and complex creative process. She works with models, often dancers. During the long sessions of work, she also makes photos and drawings. she creates life-size chrysalises in plaster in which she finds the intention of the gesture and the detail of the flesh. They are made by material and by empty, impressive, full of humanity.
Fanny Alloing, who loves Piero Della Francesca, Michel Ange, and Rodin in particular, but also BUTO dance, the art of Japanese dance – “dance from within”, evolves in her research. For five years, she’s been working the clay. Through a new creative process, longer and even more delicate, of imprint- the stamping-, she makes sculptures with Raku technique, a great evocation force.
In her many exhibitions, Fanny Alloing combines other modes of expression – prints, photos, video. It invests the place. She staged her sculptures, occupying space in all its dimensions, and thus tells us their story, or ours.
It has already been selected at PULS’ ART and MAC PARIS. His pieces are part of the collections of the Fonds d’Art Contemporain of la Ville du Mans and FIAA.

Biography written by Elisabeth Picot Le-ROY, Gallerist

Exhibition “Le Nuage Bleu”


Here is a woman, half of her body keep her head leaning on the side, arms crossed on her chest, her fingers brushing against the shoulders. The belly button represents a «contrapposto». Another one sits like a majestic queen, her fists contracted, leaning on her chin. Here is a body lying on the side, legs folded, arms gathered, her face resting on hands.
Some busts of women, children, men leaning forward, or their forehead raised.

Fanny Alloing’s characters are made in raku. The colors of fire she gives to the clay enhance the sweetness of the marks, shapes, the subtle delicateness of the gesture, the softness of a posture.

Who are they? No one dares to disturb them or ask them. Their chilled faces, their eyes often closed, the pose of their hands, all this keep us away. They seem in harmony with their bodies, in everyday life gestures. Dancers resting before a show, pensive children,
a stroller who is si on a bench giving his face to the sunbeam, a woman who wants to sleep, a young man hiding his nudity from the glance of others, we have to guess the story.

Their bodies have gaps left by the artist on the material like widows view on cosmo, we will never know. Their flesh keep marks, the roughness of earth & clay, prints of tissue, crevices came there to tell us their past, emotions pushed away, accumulated, the pain we want to forget.

These characters, we know them. They could be us.
