Château la Coste is pleased to announce In Position, the first major solo exhibition in France by the Scottish artist Callum Innes. Innes has considered an installation in response to the Jean-Michel Wilmotte-designed gallery space, that includes three site-specific wall paintings, watercolours and a major new canvas work. A fully-illustrated publication will accompany the exhibition, featuring a new text by critic and art historian Éric de Chassey (Director General of l’Institut National d’Histoire de l’Art, Paris).
One of the most celebrated abstract painters of his generation, Innes responds to the landscape and architecture of Château la Coste with a series of three monochromatic wall paintings. Rendered in intense colour, each form is a subtly distorted geometric shape that activates the wall, disorientates the viewer, and almost seems to waver like a pool of water. These slightly off-kilter forms relate to the architecture of the converted Provençal winery that houses the exhibition, the verdant beauty of La Coste’s vineyards, and the warmth of its Mediterranean light.
