Corentin Canesson: "Sleep Spaces/ Les espaces du sommeil" opening day
Corentin Canesson, "Sleep Spaces (Gouesnou)," 2021. Acrylic and inkjet on paper. 16½ x 11¾ in. (42 x 29.7 cm).  Photo courtesy of Corentin Canesson and Galerie Sator, Paris.

Corentin Canesson confronts the constructs and legacies of painting by reconsidering conventional modes of display, questioning the notion of singular authorship, and continually pressing upon the distinction between figuration and abstraction. In "Sleep Spaces," the surrealist strategy of combining disparate and seemingly incongruous references, objects, and symbols becomes a curatorial conceit to construct new associations, achieved by combining historical and contemporary works of art.

Following the opening day, the exhibit will be on display until March 12.
