Jeu de Kim n°II



Works on paper

200 x 200

Sacha Floch Poliakoff stages her obsessions in collages, drawings, paintings, and watercolours where collections of objects become a way to deal with exile and separation from her origins: Russia. The featured objects’ individual importance is abolished by the lines: they form an atemporal world that anyone can seize. In Jeu de Kim n°II (Kim’s Game #2), the things we can so easily lose or abandon are glorified and protected behind their Plexiglas pane. They embody a silent world that has a lot to say, made of time’s traces and people’s passage. Each of the represented images has a story, a suggestive power. It is a virtual memorial where the past and present meet.

During her studies at the Beaux-Arts de Paris in Jean-Michel Alberola and Stéphane Calais’ workshops and at the School of Visual Arts of New York, Sacha Floch Poliakoff received classical training and experienced a life allowing for great freedom to pursue her personal research. Alongside commissions for illustrations, frescoes, and posters, the artist’s personal work has been regularly presented in exhibitions. Influenced by her background and family history, Sacha Floch Poliakoff particularly enjoys objects, precious witnesses to what she cares for, and what carries and surrounds her. By playing with her collections, regrouping and recomposing them, she sets her artefacts on the canvas, turning it into a (un)seizable trinket bowl.
