"P-BRANE" is an art-project by Elsa Quintin / Le dessin Observé at Muzeon Experimental Centre. Exhibition is available till 15.11.

Le Dessin Observé is an artistic and an academic project exploring the figurative art practice as an observation method and as a kind of sport (exercises, repetition, daily practice, performance, choreography). Le Dessin Observé focuses on the symbolical interactionism between the person who draws and the drawing. For more than 15 years, this life-time project narrates the way some exercises can form and reform the body, and the imagination of the body.

P-BRANE is the name of one iconographical research developed by Le dessin Observé/ Elsa Quintin through a serie of paintings, installations and video performances.

In this project, the non-human presences (architecture, vegetal and mineral) are portrayed like some familiar protagonists, floating in some vertical and non-euclidean compositions.

This serie aims to present some compositions inspired by Tver’s Icons of 13th-16th centuries, emptied of sacred figures. Only remain some euphorically coloured zones, playing to be alternatively figure and background.
