For this screenprint edition, Denis Savary explores the potential of Photogram images produced by this camera-less photographic technique, that is traditionally made by placing objects on photographic paper and exposing the paper to light.

Savary proposes a contemporary serigraphy version of the inspirational works of the 19th century English Botanist and Photographer, Anna Atkins, who used this contact print method to produce impressions of plants.

For this edition, two different screens were used: one for the leaves rendered in silver, using a traditional photography technique post-edited digitally; and a second screen, on which adhesive strips were directly flashed in the manner of photograms.

The image of the traditional herbarium is revisited with the placement of this sticky matter onto palms collected in Sicily.

The title of the work points to the tendency to perceive a specific, potentially meaningful image in random or ambiguous visual pattern such as blotches or clouds.

The invitation, in this case, is to recognise a giant anteater – an animal that Salvador Dalì was particularly fond of, reworking art history’s bestiaries.

Denis Savary

Denis Savary, born in 1981, lives and works in Geneva, Switzerland. He is a recognised figure within his generation of Swiss artists.

Savary works across forms and media in his creation of dreamlike objects, images and installations. Often reinterpreting motifs and relics from throughout history, he twists them formally and psychologically through shifts in scale and material, craft and content. His works offer a contorted, totalising and at the same time piecemeal reimagination of culture.

Selected solo exhibitions are: Musée des Beaux-Arts, La Chaux-de-Fonds (2019); Museo Pietro Canonica de la Villa Borghese, Rome (2017); Centre Culturel Suisse de Paris (2016); Le Confort Moderne, Poitiers (2016); Mamco, Geneva (2015); Kunsthalle Bern (2012); La Ferme du Buisson, Noisiel (2010; Jeu de Paume, Paris (2008). Artist residencies include Palais de Tokyo (2006), Landis & Gyr, London (2018).

Savary’s work has been shown in group and solo shows internationally, including Swiss Cultural Centre, Paris, Musée d’Orsay, Paris, MAMCO, Geneva, Musée d’Art et d’Histoire, Geneva, Musée Rath, Geneva, and Swiss Institute, New York. He has received grants and awards from Nestlé Young Art Price, Fondation Vaudoise pour la Culture, Bourse de la Fondation Leenaards and two swiss art awards.
