About the Gallery
Founded in the 20th district of Paris in 2007 before moving to the Marais area in 2011, Semiose from the outset established itself in the artistic landscape as a gallery having first and foremost an interest in exhibiting French art. Established artists (Françoise Pétrovitch, Ernest T.) and younger artists (Amélie Bertrand, Laurent Le Deunff, documentation céline duval, Hippolyte Hentgen and Julien Tiberi) have been shown alongside historic figures (Présence Panchounette and André Raffray) and artists of international repute (Piero Gilardi, Steve Gianakos William S. Burroughs and Beat Zoderer). Many institutions and public collections have formed durable links with artists represented by the gallery and regularly exhibit and collect their oeuvres. In ten years of existence, Semiose has always strived to promote an aesthetic based on questions of taste and by extension cultural hierarchies. Techniques such as collage, (mis)appropriation and subversion are shared by many of our artists as well as a convergent interest in figuration, referencing the realities of an everyday world. Above all, humour, derision and a certain poetry of the absurd are common features.
