For his third solo exhibition at the gallery, Roman Moriceau pursues his research on ecology and more particularly around recovery and recycling. Titled after the music of Emahoy Tsegué-Maryam Guèbrou, Story of the Wind is a meditation on the re-use of abandoned and neglected materials.
A series of images of fauna and flora thought to be extinct are revealed with used silver salts recovered from photographic laboratories. The process produces ghostly images on sheets of gilded copper. Inspired by a study of light by Sonia Delaunay, a carpet is woven by gleaning disparate surplus wools from the web. Between furniture and sculpture, forms in hemp concrete coated with lime colored by natural pigments invite to interact with a virtuous material completely useful. A sculpture of shooter glass marbles, like a pearl necklace, links the floor and the ceiling...
"You know the wind goes around the world and has so many stories to tell... on your leisure hours, sit in your garden and listen to his story as he is passing by... you will enjoy it..."

About Archiraar Gallery
Archiraar Gallery was founded in 2012 by Alexis Rastel, architect. The Gallery represents international artists from the upcoming generation and shows paintings, drawings, sculptures, pictures, videos and installations. The Gallery’s White Cube was opened in a brutalist building. Ideology of a neutral space, this volume of 3x3x9 meters questions our contemporary habits of showing art. The Black Cube is its complementary space. Its enclosed space suggests an intimate perception of the work. With parallel solo shows, artists represented by the gallery have shown in both spaces. The Gallery intersects the spaces’ programs and invites curators and artists to participate in group shows. In addition, the Gallery publishes and promotes artists’ works. With each show, Archiraar houses resonating artistic projects.
