The long career of Françoise Sullivan is structured around a progression of stages that offer essential landmarks in navigating through her œuvre: the early years, characterized by painting, dance and association with the Automatistes and signing Refus global in the late 1940s; the development of choreography and the realization of various dance projects; the practice of sculpture, beginning in 1960; photography and film during the following decade; painting inspired by mythology, and then in the 1990s, abstract painting featuring the vibrant expressionism of colour.

This exhibition looks at the works executed by Françoise Sullivan during the 1970s, when she had discovered new art trends like conceptual art and arte povera. At that time, her work was rooted in photography, film, text and performative actions. An “imaginary line” is traced on a horizon that merges art, family, time and the world.
