La maison rouge
10 boulevard de la Bastille
75012 Paris

La maison rouge presents the first monographic exhibition featuring Jérôme Zonder’s work to be held in Paris. For more than ten years, Jérôme Zonder (b. 1974 in Paris) has been developing a body of work of great virtuosity, centered on drawing. References to Albrecht Dürer, Robert Crumb, Rembrandt, Charles Burns, Otto Dix and Walt Disney appear cheek by jowl in narrative compositions that are often cruel.

For this show Jérôme Zonder has turned La maison rouge into a labyrinthine sequence in which visitors are invited to move around inside the drawings themselves, made of graphite, charcoal, ink and acrylic paint, which cover the walls and floors. A selection of drawings he made during the past ten years is presented in this special display. The exhibition thus offers a spatial and mental path through the artist’s concerns. These touch both on technique, through the multiplicity of his graphic practices—always in black and white—and the limits of drawing. Deeply marked by the tragedies of the 20th century and obsessed with the inexorability of human violence, Zonder examines and digs into the history of art and cinema, the violence of history both public and private, and also the fascinating transition from childhood to adolescence. These different narrative registers combine and overlap in a complex body of work which challenges us and queries our relation to representation and reality.

To coincide with the exhibition Fatum, Fage éditions and La maison rouge are publishing a bilingual catalogue, 128 pages, texts by Baptiste Brun, Nathan Réra

Jérôme Zonder is represented by Galerie Eva Hober, Paris.
