Galerie Jérôme Poggi


Artists Bio

Georges Tony Stoll
(b. in Marseille, France, 1955) Lives and works in Paris (France).

Georges Tony Stoll graduated from the Fine Arts Academy in Marseille and became well known for his photographs for exploring what he names the "domains of abstraction". Reattached to an "aesthetics of intimacy" by several art critics, his work is distinguished by a rather marked plastic and pictorial approach, and by his taste for staging bodies and objects. He showed at Galerie Jérôme Poggi (2012, 2017), the Villa Medicis in Rome (2010), Grand Palais (La force de l'art, 2009), Musée national d'art moderne, Paris - Centre Georges Pompidou (2003), White Cube, New York (2000), Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (2004). His work can be found in numerous public collections including Musée national d'art moderne, Paris - Centre Georges Pompidou, Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Fondation Louis Vuitton, among others.

Paul Mignard
(b. in Avignon, France, 1989) Lives and works in Paris (France).

As a painter, located at the frontiers of the representation of the visible and invisible world, Paul Mignard raises the question of the "real or external landscape" and the "transformed or internal landscape" around his own experimentations of travel on the occasion of great walks and the memory he has of them. A poet, he also integrates the verb into his pictorial approach and creates words and images through a succession of thin superposed layers. Playing on contrasts, he uses pigments and glitter on printed fabric or virgin canvas where the precision of the line, transparency and opacity are mixed. The absence of a frame reflects the artist's desire for lightness and to get closer to a "raw art".

Sidival Fila
(b. in Panama, Brazil, 1962) Lives and works in Rome (Italy).

Sidival Fila studied art in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He now lives and works in the Franciscan monastery of San Bonaventura, on the Mount Palatine. After putting aside his artistic practice to devote himself to religion for twenty years, he started to produce again in 2006, using poor or obsolete recovered materials. In 2015, his exhibition at the Bilotti Museum in the Orangery of the Borghese Villa marked his reappearance on a significant institutional art scene. The Jérôme Poggi Gallery devoted to him his first solo show in France in December 2017.

Marion Verboom
(b. in Nantes, Frances, 1983) Lives and works in Paris (France).

Her body-work is mostly composed by drawings and sculptures, both of which operate autonomously but feed themselves respectively. The modeled shapes borrow from the history of sculpture (from ancient forms and subjects to contemporary installations), architecture and geology (crystals, sediments, organic creations). The transposition of drawings into sculpture seeks to question the physical impact volume may have on the viewer. Their physical or formal confrontation leads to a tension governing the arrangement of her installations. In her sculptures, the artist arranges and sets the materials revealing different ceramic stratification treatments, traces while manipulating the cast material or the appropriations of figurative elements representing the human body.

Gallery Statement

Gallery Jérôme Poggi is one of the leading galleries from the new generation in Paris. Founded by curator and art historian Jérôme Poggi in 2009, the gallery was initially located in the North of Paris, and opened its main space in 2014 in front of the Centre Pompidou, in Le Marais. The gallery represents around 20 international artists from different generations. It participates to the main international art fairs such as FIAC (Paris), Armory Show (New York), Miami Art Basel, ARCO (Madrid), Art Brussels, etc. Next to the gallery, the not-for profit organisation, SOCIETIES, was founded in 2004 to experiment new models of political economy for the art. It encourages and supports private initiatives carried out by any community from the civic society who wants to intervene on the art scene.
