    The presence of the body and the movements are readable in the work of Jonathan Binet. Every painting, every line, every spray is the result of a premeditation which generates a route stuffed with obstacles, as spontaneous as calculated: the exhibition.


    For Jonathan Binet, the context is essential and the work has to adapt itself to the space. A radiator for example, influences the production of the work quite as its hanging and interacts in the way of looking the picture. The considered space becomes the condition of emergence of a performed painting.

    The 650 square meters of the gallery of the exhibition crossed by Binet have an arrangement in laces. Breaks, jerks and linearity make the glance navigate from of a painting to a baseboard, from a hole in the wall to a masterpiece of sprayed work. So many round trips which reflect the fascination of the artist for the crossed chronologies and the temporal knots.

    "When I met Alexis Vaillant at the CAPC, in January, I spoke to him about the intuition I had on the possibility of acting on the past from the future. […] This reflection comes from a will to justify, afterward, a thing which arrived almost accidentally. […] If the footprints, the knocks of brushes and manufacturing defects are indeed behind me, they will always face the visitor. Literally, it’s time passing. "
    And this time is as well deliberate as spontaneous.


    Jonathan Binet is one of the most promising artist of the new generation. La petite moitié is the first institutionnal exhibition of the artist.
