agnès b. opens « Out of Frame & Landscapes », the second exhibition from her collection, on September 25, 2020, at La Fab.

Following on from « The boldness », the inaugural exhibition from the agnès b. collection, agnès will show some of the out-of-frame gazes and landscapes in her collection. Unprecedented associations allow agnès to catalyze new connections between works, in the manner of a large collage suffused with freedom.

A gaze out of frame is often a feature of works that move, impress and overwhelm me. I love the notion of the subject enjoying the freedom to look wherever they want. And the artist’s mark of respect for their subject.
It’s the polar opposite of characters in commercials staring intensely at us with the sole aim of drawing us in despite ourselves. Sure, Mona Lisa looks straight at us, and that’s what people like. Her presence.

But, in the Louvre, the mystery of a portrait of a young man gazing into the distance, Titian’s Man with the Glove, is what first captivated 11-year-old me. After falling in love with him, I went back several times as a teenager. Sometimes, I was just missing him. I think his not looking at me is what made me fall so deeply in love. The gaze out of frame opens up the possibility of another space, somewhere else.agnès

In his foreword to the exhibition, Jean de Loisy comments :
“The agnès b. collection is free and powerful, like a cloud that flouts borders and aesthetic canons. A collection that is fortunately neither perfect, nor complete, yet a collection that we love.”
