Press Release

You Remind Me of Someone constitutes the first artistic proposal by Fanny Gonella, recently appointed as the director of 49 Nord 6 Est–FRAC Lorraine, after having acted for four years as artistic director of the Künstlerhaus in Bremen (DE). Conceived as a prolog, an act of openness in view of getting acquainted, this collective exhibition takes the form of an encounter between two entities: Gonella’s last project featured in Germany and the collection of 49 Nord 6 Est–FRAC Lorraine.
This group exhibition relies on mechanisms triggered by resemblance, mimicry, and reciprocity in order to explore our relationship to images in a world in which they multiply endlessly on a daily basis. The visual and gestural similarities between the works question affinities, elicit encounters, seek to find a common thread in this continuous flux. The exhibition proposes a conversation between two approaches to art at an intersection between works of young international artists and those from the emblematiccollection of this  site, which today is embarking on a new chapter.
