Immortelle (group show)
11 March – 4 June 2023
Artist duo Tursic & Mille’s painting Jeune fille vidant le contenu de son contenant, 2021, is currently on view in the group exhibition Immortelle. Bringing together emblematic artists of the French scene born in the 1970s and 80s, the exhibition presents an ambitious panorama of contemporary French figurative painting and revisits genres from history painting to portraiture, landscape, and still life. Tursic & Mille’s work renews classical portraiture by depicting a young woman, dressed in rococo–style clothing, who spills the contents of a contemporary beer bottle.

Marfa, Texas by Tursic & Mille
In a series of photographs taken while on the road to Hetzler | Marfa in December 2022, artistic duo Tursic & Mille capture the vast, fascinating and cinematic landscape of Southern Texas, from Marfa to the Chihuahuan desert. Alongside these special photographs, the artists’ own words further evoke their journey.

The Woods (solo show)
FRAC Normandie, Caen
6 May – 17 September 2023
FRAC Normandie will present The Woods, a solo exhibition of Tursic & Mille. The artist duo’s explosive paintings superimpose images, styles and genres. By transposing photographs of flowers, models and dogs, among other subjects, Ida Tursic and Wilfried Mille transform material from our image saturated world into the traditional domain of painting. The title of the exhibition refers both to the works carved from wood and, metaphorically, to the forest of signs from which the artists draw inspiration – the images in one’s head which form an inner landscape.

The Inner Island (group show)
Villa Carmignac, Île de Porquerolles, Hyères
29 April – 5 November 2023
Works by Darren Almond, Giulia Andreani, Jeremy Demester, Tursic & Mille and Christopher Wool will be on view in the exhibition The Inner Island, curated by Jean-Marie Gallais. Inspired by the insular location of the Fondation Carmignac’s villa on Porquerolles, a remote island off the French Mediterranean coast in the region of the Côte d’Azur, the exhibition explores the notion of interiority as a powerful driver of creation. Floating outside of known geographies and temporalities, the artists included in this exhibition populate their images with strange and foreign presences – human, animal, hybrid, or supernatural. The result is a distance from reality which encourages an immersion into inner worlds and recesses, giving rise to fictional, mental, or abstract islands.

The exhibition considers interrelated themes which question the nature of the collection itself, its visions of art and society and its relationship to public institutions. The works on view, representing 111 artists and artists’ collectives as well as 58 private lenders, suggest different ways of relating to our environment and revisit forgotten aspects of art history.
