Corps à Corps
June 20 to July 28, 2018

The exhibition "Body to Body" puts face to face two painters who at fifty years of distance have the same interest for the human body as it is, without seeking to embellish it. In colored gray, on neutral backgrounds, they show us men or women timeless, naked, without artifice, lost in their dreams or their madness. One can see eroticism, or obscenity, but also tenderness and the sacred. Yet the subject of these two series of paintings remains the naked body, receptacle of our joys and our sorrows, where our suffering and the passage of time are read. Because, as Jean Rustin says, it is in the body and in the flesh that the history of man is finally written, and perhaps even the history of art.


Born in 1982, Louis Salkind lives and works in Paris. Comedian, singer, dancer, writer, then painter, Louis Salkind is a multiform artist. His first exhibitions in Paris, dating back two years, attracted immediate interest from collectors and the press:

"His nudes are very strong ... and compose a silent opera" (Telerama)
"One reads in these naked characters ... revisited allegories, a kind of contemporary mythology" (Beaux-Arts Magazine).
