Following the success at the New York Academy of Arts’ “Take Home a Nude Event” curated by Eileen Guggenheim, and the exhibition at Hackney Empire hosted by controversial artist Gavin Turk, Marco Sanges presents his works with A Gallery.
Bigger than life characters, stories and lavish costumes, reminiscent of Surrealism and in particular the Visual and Performing Arts of the ‘20s and ‘30s. Greatly attracted to cinema and in particular the luminous Black and White films of the silent era, Sanges creates photographs in sequence. Every sequence tells a unique, multi-layered story, creating a highly personal, imaginary cinema. The surrealistic
feel of his work represents the liberation of the unconscious, as a mean to create art outside the boundaries of official culture, the rejection of established values and a concrete effort to illustrate extreme mental states, unconventional ideas, or elaborate fantasy worlds, all elements typical of ‘Outside Art’.
"There is something remarkable about those pictures, something unforeseen, something of new (...) No reply is ever given because of opened pictures to create draft those of Rêveries. What if poetry was there after all?" Patrice Leconte , Film Director - from the preface of the book Circumstances by Marco Sanges
