The gallery lends works of the indian artist Zarina, are made of a sophisticated fabric of diagrams and maps embodying the memory of place, of an event, the memory of an atmosphere or of an experienced instant, whether it be sonic, visual, olfactory, or emotional. Zarina works mostly on wood engraving, with papers coming from all around the world, she maps out, during her stays in these countries, multiple political conflicts and their collateral effects.

Her first exhibition in Paris dates back to 2008 for the inaugural exhibition in our new space, followed in 2011 by her solo exhibition “Noor.” A retrospective traveling exhibition of her work, entitled “Zarina: Paper like Skin,” was presented in the United States in 2012, first at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, then at the Guggenheim in New York and at the Chicago Art Institute.
