LE MONDE, June 18 th 2015

 

This is a drawing exhibition, not far from two hundred, inked or pencilled. They cover three walls of the gallery, occasionally painted black. The most of them are portraits, including those of Marlene Dietrich, Mahatma Gandhi, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jules Caesar and Batman, easily recognizable. There are also some unknowns, octopus, a moody Cyclops and various monsters. However, this might not be what we first see as the most astonishing remains in the extreme diversity of graphic styles, juxtaposed by a deliberately chaotic installation. Truc-Anh, 32 years old, appears to be as comfortable with Goya as he is with Dix, with Hokusai as he is with Warhol. He knows them so well there is nothing laborious in its variations, drawn with a speed and remarkable freedom of movement. Also, it is less a drawings exhibition to look one by one than an installation that plays with heterogeneity, contradictions and tensions created from one work to another. It says a lot about the current state of art, its memory saturated of references and the need to get out of it. To achieve this, Truc-Anh chose to smash through in order to disperse it : this might not be a bad method. “

TELERAMA, July 2015

 

Entre le cabinet de curiosités et la chambre d'ado à ranger dare-dare, Truc-Anh, né en 1983, a transformé de fond en comble la petite galerie Sator. Sur des murs repeints à la peinture noire, l'artiste, qui vit entre Paris et Hô Chi Minh, a troussé une installation où sont tapissées des œuvres sur papier, des dessins de petits formats de styles et de factures très différents, des pages de croquis, des lavis à l'encre, des portraits ou des scènes venues de la presse ou de livres ou encore des images issues d'Internet. Un piquant maelström d'images dont la saturation évoque, et plagie à sa façon, notre (pas) très évidente et moderne époque…

PECLERS PARIS

 

"De quoi rêvez vous lorsque la bienséance sociale ne vous conditionne pas à sélectionner vos idées les plus appropriées ? Cette harmonie chaotique est en chacun de nous mais nous en somme déconnectés. Nous sommes tous victimes d'une auto censure inculquée dès le début de nos scolarisés. Lorsque je travaille, j'essaie de ne pas hiérarchiser, de ne pas cataloguer les styles car tout ça existe en moi.

Peu importe la direction du chemin pourvu que les pas soient réels."

"The Game of Faith" by Lisa Gerven

 

Essay by Lisa Gerven,  Curator  MUKHA Museum of Contemporary Art,

Antwerpen, Belgium, 2014

"For a long time, the artist was seen as somebody who had access to the true nature of life, the genuine, higher truth, maybe even to the sublime. It was his job to make this knowledge comprehensible for the common man. Truc-Anh, however, does something radically different. What Truc-Anh shows is the confusing part of life. "

 "Q - What do you mean by enigma ?
 A - I believe that a painting has to challenge you over the course of time. Today, 90% of images are "ready to think". The concept itself has turned into crutches and statements like some slogan. It’s a huge mistake, because the eye of the viewer becomes passive. A piece of art should resist the consumption mechanism."

"The Game of Faith" by Kara Rooney

" The poet John Keats referred to this ambiguous resistance as “negative capability.” In the work of Truc-Anh, “negative capability” is registered on a monumental scale, tethering us to our fleeting, fragile, and very human condition."
