Ronnie Cutrone’s career began at the Factory in 1965. After performing with the Velvet Underground band, produced by Andy Warhol, he became one of his closest collaborators. He worked alongside him on the launch of Interview magazine and on certain series such as the “Piss paintings”, for which Warhol asked him to take extra doses of vitamin B to improve the oxidation reactivity of his urine. He immortalized daily life at the Factory in a series of stereoscopic 3D color photographs, including images of Warhol at work and shots of his visitors, among whom Mick Jagger, Debbie Harry, Dennis Hopper and Paloma Picasso.

A key player in this era, he was a privileged witness to artistic movements ranging from punk to pop. It was in this context that Cutrone developed his own artistic practice and post-Pop imagery, featuring iconic characters such as Woody Woodpecker, Bart Simpson and Bugs Bunny. A true testimony to the creative effervescence of New York, his works were first exhibited at the Richard Feigen Gallery in 1969 and have been in important private and public collections since his success at Art Basel in 1982.

Galerie 75 Faubourg


Galerie 75 Faubourg is delighted to present Paper Cloud, its second exhibition devoted to the artist Renk, in collaboration with Galerie Enrico Navarra. In his creations, Renk subjugates space through writing and sign, through a formal language that unfolds in the pigments of his work. His gestures and his name which he constantly affixes, question the physicality of the literary landscapes created. They irremediably fill the void inherent in words, until they make way for the painting, skies and climatic instants that inhabit the artist and which he had decided would eventually eclipse scriptural space.

Galerie 75 Faubourg


75 faubourg and Enrico Navarra galleries present the exhibition The Breath of Calligraphy of South African artist Dr. Esther Mahlangu, showcasing a selection of acrylics on canvas created between 2010 and 2022. These works refer to the painter’s Ndebele heritage and celebrate “the contemplation of space and colour, both abundant and accented: Africa’s calligraphy. […] She [Mahlangu] shares with us a distinctly clear tale of a lifetime, translated geometrically and colourfully into the language of art.” (Ruzy Rusike, exhibition leaflet)

In the Ndebele community, the tradition of decorative mural painting is an age-old art reserved for women, with techniques passed down from mother to daughter, and done on the facades of houses during ritual ceremonies. From an early age, Esther Mahlangu learned to make pigments, to prepare the surface to be painted and to create decorative compositions mixing traditional geometric figures and invented motifs.

Dr. Mahlangu revolutionized this traditional art using new techniques. She is the first to transfer this painting practice to canvases and other contemporary mediums and has replaced natural pigments with even more vivid and contrasting acrylic paints. Using a feather, she paints freehand without prior sketching, on a variety of formats and media: canvases, walls, ceramics, cars (BMW Art Car Collection, 1991), motorcycles or sneakers (Eytys, 2015).

Under The Palm Trees

18.10 – 01.12.2023
Galerie 75 Faubourg


Galerie Enrico Navarra and Galerie 75 Faubourg are delighted to present Under the Palm Trees, its second solo exhibition devoted to the Puerto Rico-born and New York-based artist Enoc Pérez. His latest works were produced in the warm embrace of the Villa Navarra in Le Muy, South of France. In this exhibition, the artist delves into the realm of basic commercial clichés, transcending them to become integral facets of our very identities.

The foundation of Pérez’s reflection relies on a Puerto Rico that lies in the depths of its being as well as on an extensive archive of documentary material from the 1960s, featuring promotional content for the island. This seminal material carries powerful connotations for both natives and foreigners alike, and Perez masterfully transmutes it into a personal form of artistic expression.

“When I started to make paintings of rum bottles, I made them because they were to me, self-portraits, still life’s, American pop art and lies. Drinking rum never made me popular with women or rich or happy. It made me an alcoholic and still I love those images. Very much like Stockholm syndrome.” Enoc Pérez, September 2023.

Much like in his beloved Puerto Rico, where the island’s dreams and promises often unfold or not, beneath the swaying palm trees, Pérez transports us to the sun-soaked south of France, where the allure of these towering palms becomes a symbol of the region’s identity. Whether those promises manifest or remain in the realm of imagination is irrelevant, for under the palm trees, all dreams are carefully crafted to override any inconvenient realities.

In Pérez’s art, these clichés morph into a powerful representation of our collective identity. Just as in Puerto Rico, where touristy commercial images of resorts, luxury, sensuality, and spirits mirror a complex colonial history and contemporary existence, the artist’s work challenges us to embrace the multifaceted nature of our own identities.

Enter a world where Pérez’s paintings of rum bottles are both, classical still life and American pop art. With an elaborate and poignant touch, he explores the paradoxical allure of these images. The promises that these rum advertisements imply did not made him popular, wealthy, or joyful, but still he loves them and identifies them as his very own. In a way, it’s a journey akin to Stockholm Syndrome, where the captive falls in love with their captor, albeit in this case, it’s the seductive power of these commercial clichés that captivates our imaginations.
