Polysémie Collection – Les Amis de Marseille


Project Ability is pleased to present an exhibition of work from artists represented by the Polysemie Gallery in Marseille.

In early 2017 we were contacted by François Vertadier, managing director of the Polysémie Gallery in Marseille, with an exciting proposition. François invited us to exhibit with them during the “le printemps de l‘art contemporain” in the spring of 2018. In exchange we invited the Polysémie Gallery to Project Ability. This cultural exchange of art introduces a wider audience to both sets of artists. We are delighted to be working with the Polysémie Gallery, and through this new partnership we are excited to present this intriguing and unique body of work.

Exhibiting artists: David Abisror, Philippe Azema, Davide Cicolani, Davood Koochaki, Dominique Liccia, Izabella Ortiz, Evelyne Postic, Maurizio Zappon.

About Galerie Polysémie….

Polysémie gallery, located in Marseille, is a private gallery dedicated to contemporary art, with an important international position. It aims to be open to several artistic approaches and especially “outsiders” artists who belong to the magic world of art brut and more widely singular art.
While representing artists well established in the current art scene, Polysémie promotes young and undiscovered emerging artists who show great potential for future development.

“Our proposal is to continue our search for territories located at the source of creation with a selection of artists who work far from any limits with an absolute freedom regarding official culture. We want to focus on this genuine creation which is an artistic expression of freedom, emerging from the imaginary and depth of artists who break out of the mould. We want to focus on artists working in a unique dimension that permits to approach the borders of artistic expression in the purest way and develop reflection, on the essence of creativity and ambiguous relation between human beings and creativity. We want to focus on artists that ignore techniques and materials – artists who give life to a personal style and to its own artistic vocabulary, completely outside cultural mainstream.”
