Galerie Jocelyn Wolff is presenting an exhibition in honor of Ján Mančuška (1972-2011), in place of a solo exhibition cancelled following his passing last July. Entitled Les amis de mes amis sont mes amis (The friends of my friends are my friends), this exhibition consists of works by artists who were among Ján Mančuška’s personal friends. For this exhibition, each artist selected or produced a work in relationship to, in dialogue with Ján Mančuška’s work. Highlighting how friendship played an essential role in Ján Mančuška’s life and oeuvre, Les amis de mes amis sont mes amis also demonstrates how, through the multiple dialogues generated by the presented works, the work of this exceptional artist can occupy en creux the gallery space and continue to give form to the present.
