11 Janvier - 9 mars 2019
Vernissage le 10 janvier de 18h à 21h
La galerie Jérôme Pauchant est heureuse de présenter Rover, première exposition personnelle de Simon Laureyns (1979) à Paris. Dans une réelle approche de peintre et dans la continuité de ses recherches, l'artiste originaire de Gand (BE) présente ses dernières oeuvres de la série "Shelter Paintings" : des oeuvres murales composées de toiles de tentes de camping usagées, tendues sur châssis, qui ne sont ni formalistes ni narratives mais libérées de toute interprétation et connectées au réel.
It's a blue one, yeah, I came home just for one day, as you were coming over. Frank is fishing. We're there out a lot, it's not far from the appartement, aproximately 40 minutes. Everything should be in the bag. That's what Frank told me.
You can go to the garage in the back of the garden, my husband is there. It's already an old one, but it's still complete. Sticks are with it too. Don't forget to close the door.
No problems to find it ? Yeah, a lot of people end up on the other side of the river. They recently changed the driving directions in our street, but it's not in maps yet. Anyhow, you made it. I also have a second one which I would like to show you. Okay, no problem, I understand if you don't like the colour. If you turn left at the end of the street, then right, then right again, and at the end you take the second on the roundabout, then you should be fine. Good luck with it.
Can you come to the back of the house ? Just around the corner in the paralel street, there's a small green door.
Okay, can you give me a hand ? Mark put it upstairs and it's way too heavy for me. Thanks, I hope you have fun with it. Have a safe trip back.
Oh, you are already there. Sorry, I'm on my way, I'll be there in five minutes. Hey, how are you ?
Sorry again for the delay, come in please.
It belonged to my parents. But they're too old now and we don't use it. Although it's old, it is still in perfect condition.
Thanks a lot, bye.

- Dad, the guy is here!
- Yeah, let him in, I'm coming.
- Hey, how are you ?
- Ah okay, that's quite a long trip.
- You can come with me, it's in the garage.
- I spread it over there so you can have a look at it.
- There's some damage on the zipper.
- Ah, you don't care. Okay, then we have a deal.
