Commitment

L’ahah is committed to visual artists by offering tailor-made and long-term collaborations.

In order to increase artists recognition, L’ahah sets up dissemination tools such as exhibitions, publications, and multiple editions.

Over a five-year period, two solo shows with publishing and editing projects are proposed in Paris. Within the allotted time, a project space is provided.

Other disciplinary fields are invited to enter the project, in the perspective of receiving more consistent support.

L’ahah also aims to echo the initiatives of alternative structures at national and European levels. Part of L’ahah’s program thus relays their actions, work and publications.

L’ahah is a nonprofit organisation, founded in June 2017 and from September 2018 runs two spaces in Paris and one in Ris Orangis/Grand Paris Sud.

#Griset

L’ahah is located at 4 cité Griset 75011 Paris, France. This space hosts 4 exhibitions per year. There is also a small bookshop and consultation space.

#Moret

One block from our Cité Griset main site, 24-26 rue Moret is the organisation’s showcase. Smaller, the space hosts five exhibitions a year.

#La Réserve

Located in Ris-Orangis, the venue counts five artists studio and a vast space dedicated experimentation and research.

Publishing

L'ahah Editions

Since its creation, L’ahah has developed an editorial activity in parallel with its associative activity. The idea of L’ahah Editions was born out of a concern to document the biographical and iconographic traces of artists who have been neglected and whose work has been built up over the years is considerable, in the true sense of the term.
Through publishing, L’ahah also intends to continue its engagement with artists and create new spaces for dialogue.
Convinced that the confrontation of ideas and art forms is a source of creativity and enrichment, L'ahah publishing, if they remain deeply attached to the visual arts, also wish to be able to welcome contributors from different fields of knowledge and / or other artistic practices.
By crossing genres, disciplines and forms, L’ahah Editions intend to support, encourage and promote contemporary creation and research in the arts, and act as a sound speaker for projects with porous contours.

UNAN

«The idea for UNAN came from the desire to document the human and artistic experience of my residency at L’ahah (for almost a year) and, at the same time, to create a very pictorial object. The photographic part consists of a series of photographs which were taken for the most part in the building located at Cité Griset. Again, the very appearance of this publication, its aesthetic , *and the fact that I designed it as if it were a painting. What I really care about, however, is having shared with other people that I appreciate the few days of work duly filled in in the black box. These are the traces left by the artists who worked and lived in my studio during these few days ». Enrico Bertelli, excerpt from the interview by Alex Chevalier in 2018.

With this artist's book, published in 2018, artist-member Enrico Bertelli looks back on the year of his artistic residency at L’ahah in 2018.

Guests on this occasion: Valentino Barachini, Federico Cavallini, Robert Gschwantner, Matthew Licht, Franco Menicagli, Agathe Rosa, Andrew Smaldone and Sergio Tossi.

I’m one of them, L'exercice d'une peinture. Cahier n°6

«As his practice combines video, writing, digital drawing, and painting of course (...) An exploded persona - terribly current - is said here, navigating between art history and social networks. Who is afraid of the figure in painting? I think, for my part, things are better. (...)» Marie Cantos, p.19.

Un livre d'images, L'exercice d'une peinture. Cahier n°5

«He achieves what looks like an inexhaustible repertoire of forms and ideas, since then a face to face, which is sometimes a face to joke, and constantly, a face to face. I appreciate the aesthetic boldness shown by the painter, towards which, the self-portrait, remains this guardian figure of the cape. To represent his head with a thousand faces is to present the place where this art of variation comes from.» Jeanpascal February, p.50.

Once upon a time... L'exercice d'une peinture. Cahier n°4

«At the origin, there is the desire to be: to register right there in the present moment, to be in the world, to slip into silence, to perform acts which signify acting on the world or being acts by the world. Put on the painter's clothes: incarnate in this being capable of representing, sketching a sheep and bringing it to life. Wear a garment of light.» Bernard Gaube, p.4.

«The door is closed… The elements are placed. The lair is closed, a world opens up ... The ritual can begin. Various stages of execution will overlap and allow to crystallize a symbolic and cognitive system. A way to re-enchant the world, to reclaim it. A mix of different eras where the timeless meets the everyday and makes sense.» Catherine Henkinet, p.3.

    “Gaube is a painter. He navigates in the infinite space of painting. He puts the material on the support so that the magic operates. His instruments are: color, matter, transparency, opacity ... The subjects are in short only pretexts which offer him the possibility of as many free figures. In short, this is the path that concerns Bernard Gaube and not the rallying point.

«The shape of the notebook seemed to us to be the most appropriate, the most dynamic for questioning this exercise in painting, meeting different perspectives, highlighting the pleasure of discovery and of an endlessly questioned practice. A playground, a field of openness rather than an ultimate vision, such is the intention of these notebooks.» Bernard Gaube, p.7.
