NoguerasBlanchard is pleased to present the exhibition Emoji peace dove Emoji red heart Emoji blue butterfly, by artist Anne-Lise Coste (Marignane, France, 1973) coinciding with the Barcelona Gallery Weekend.

Renowned for her radical approach, the creative potential of Anne-lise Coste’s work is articulated in the spontaneous gesture and opposition to the standardisation of art. Taking a close look at the fractures and double standards of contemporary society, she explores the possibilities for moving beyond existing constraints towards a new sense of freedom.

The recent protests in France against the rise in systematic police abuse of racialised groups are still echoing in the pages of newspapers and offer a context to dive into Emoji peace dove Emoji red heart Emoji blue butterfly. The same messages that can be found in the French public space and that are intended to convey discontent and resistance, adopt a corporeal form as radiating neon signs in the gallery space. In this way, the luminous word POLICE (2022) functions as a warning signal. Almost in response to it, the neon installation non (2023) sends a message of subversion against controlling authorities, oppresion and hierarchies and hangs in space as a silent cry, as an electrifying mantra of resistance and rebellion against violence, domination and conformism.
