January 13 - February 26, 2022
The Dove Allouche: Primordial Soup exhibition at Peter Freeman, Inc., will run from January 13 until February 26, 2022. It explores inner and outer spaces and questions ties between the infinite beyond, the infinite within, and the milieu in which phenomena appear in imagery.
Peter Freeman, Inc. is pleased to present Villa Albertine resident Dove Allouche’s works from three recent series: Absorption Lines (2018-2019), a series of platinum prints that break light signals down into vertical shadings of gray; the Repeint series (Repainted, 2019-2021), photographic enlargements of side-on views of layers of paint; and the I.R series (2016-2018), which includes 153 drawings in silver oxide, based on the entire corpus of glass plate negatives left by Isaac Roberts.

About Dove Allouche:
Dove Allouche was born in 1972 in Sarcelles, France, and he currently lives and works in Paris.

His work has previously been the subject of solo exhibitions at Fondation Ricard, (Paris, 2016), and Centre Pompidou (Paris, 2013).

Allouche is one of 80 residents participating in the inaugural season of Villa Albertine.
About the exhibition:
Experimenting with various scales and depths, Dove Allouche seeks, in the Absorption Lines and Repeint series, to bring objects into the realm of the visible and to the foreground, using photography, telescopes and microscopes.
In the Repeint series, the depth of the brush stroke depicted in the fragments echoes the overarching movement. The miniscule fragments, once brought together, make the hand behind the brush tangible. The I.R series focuses more on the ritualized process of testing images against their own motifs and arguments.
Dove Allouche establishes unsettling analogies between states of the visible, scales of space and time, and foreshortened perceptions.
Dove Allouche is a resident of the first season of Villa Albertine. His exploratory residence, in partnership with Art Explora and les Beaux Arts de Paris, will take place in Houston, one of the 10 cities in which residents can pursue their work.
Villa Albertine is a new French institution for arts and ideas in the United States created by the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs and supported by the French Ministry of Culture.
