DANIELLE JACQUI ~ Environment ~ Outsider Art Now

The early 1970s were a founding period for Jacqui. She met Claude Leclercq, her second husband, who became a close companion in her artistic career until his death in 2000. A fellow brocanteur and a man with a rich personal history, Claude shared with Jacqui, a ‘state of complementarity and mutual enrichment’. The period from 1973 onwards marked Jacqui’s participation in the first of what was to become a long line of both group and solo exhibitions. Since then, her work has been shown in France, Japan, Switzerland (including at the Collection of Art Brut, Lausanne) and the United States (‘Love: Error and Eros’ at the Museum of American Visionary Art, 1998).Established in Pont de l’Etoile in her somewhat surprising home, which serves as studio, museum and living space, Jacqui, painter and ceramic artist arouses everyone’s curiosity.

Subtle fragments of memory traces trigger feelings of places – the works function as a sort of archeology of memory. She searches for traces and signs that are not defined, but still strong enough for allowing memories or ideas of a place to appear. Lampenius thus investigates the memory and the image, the visual memory, that continues also after the initial stimulus.

Sporting wool suits and mops of dark hair, they barreled out a German miner’s hymn, taking cheeky pleasure in alienating the room around them while making themselves the center of it. It’s 1983: Cologne is the beating capital of the West German art world, and this trio of artists is bent on basking in its spotlight. Decades later, Büttner still remembers the evening well. Without prompting, he belts out a few lines of the hymn to me, pounding his fist in the air, while we tour his current solo exhibition at Contemporary Fine Arts in Berlin.

The Market for Female Surrealists Has Finally Reached a Tipping Point

But in recent years, they have paid closer attention to the wider spectrum of women associated with Surrealism, in particular to Carrington and Tanning, in part due to their prolificacy and the twists and turns of their artistic practices. Carrington, a British artist who broke with her traditional, privileged upbringing and spent the majority of her life in Mexico, is believed to have made more than 2,000 works. In 2015, the U.K.’s Tate Liverpool organized a retrospective of her work; another followed this year at Mexico City’s Museum of Modern Art, featuring over 200 works. Tanning has also seen an escalation of interest from private collectors. Her world-record price routinely doubled or tripled in the period between 2009 and 2015, according to auction records and Dawes’s observations.

Yayoi Kusama: the world's favourite artist?

The 89-year-old Japanese artist, who for the past 41 years has lived voluntarily in a psychiatric hospital, has had large-scale solo shows of her work in Mexico City, Rio, Seoul, Taiwan and Chile, as well as major touring exhibitions in the US and Europe. Last year, she opened her own five-storey gallery in Tokyo. The Broad museum in Los Angeles recently sold 90,000 $25 tickets in an afternoon to its Kusama exhibition, causing the LA Times to ask if the artist was now “Hotter than Hamilton?”

As the numbers have gone up, so the time that each visitor can spend in Kusama’s installations – her immersive “infinity mirror rooms” of coloured lights, and painted pumpkins and polka dots that reflect for ever – has gone down.

The Man Who Keeps Monet’s Famed Gardens Growing. Vahé notes that, when it came to the gardens, Monet was driven by desire and instinct. He’d once decided on the spur of the moment that he wanted chrysanthemums, and wrote a letter to friend and fellow painter to find out where he could get them.

Monet prided himself on the garden, acknowledging it as his own creation, but also as his open-air studio, where he planted himself for hours on end to paint, weather permitting. In the Japanese water garden, which he developed later, he installed a large studio. Though the time Monet spent at Giverny is often associated with the artist’s darker works and periods of personal turmoil, particularly around World War I, the gardens are said to have instilled in the artist a sense of joy, as well as the motivation to create the works that would later be credited with pushing Western painting towards abstraction.
