On the occasion of the first edition of Paris+ by Art Basel, the gallery will present (booth E07) the mystical X-rays of Eric Benetto, a secret and rare personality of contemporary art brut.

Present in emblematic collections such as those of Laurent Dumas, Antoine Frérot or Piet Meyer, he was exhibited in 2022 in Deus Ex Machina at the Soissons museum (curator: Clément Thibault), but also alongside Cecilia Granara in Débordements (curators: Anaël Pigeat and Yvannoé Kruger). Major figure in the disruptive exhibition Brut Now: Art brut in the technological era at the Musée de Belfort (catalog published by Presses du réel), his “fantastic forms of organic proliferation”, as Marc Lenot describes them, never cease to fascinate.

Deeply impacted by his discovery of Augustin Lesage, Éric Benetto explores the most arduous spiritual paths: monastic life and ascetic practices of the Orthodox hesychasm. His Chinese ink or pencil drawings, on paper, radiographs and other MRI scans are imbued with syncretic mysticism as well as an exceptional modernity. Before his first solo exhibition organized by the gallery in 2019, his work had already been noticed at the exhibition Brut Now: art brut in the time of technologies, at the Belfort museums. Since then, he has joined prestigious collections such as those of Laurent Dumas (France) or Treger-Saint Silvestre (Portugal).
