A series of exhibitions at the Maison de Heidelberg / Heidelberg Haus in Montpellier. Unfinished Sympathy raised the question of the relationship between time and painting, Phototropia addressed the question of "migrant forms" in  painting, the overflow of painting outside its framework, and Grammaires fantômes / Phantomgrammatiken raises the question of the relationship between language, writing, pictorial gesture and memory. The exhibitions were built on the basis of dialogues carried by questionings related to experimentation in painting in France and Germany today. The participating artists are those with whom I exchange views on this subject.
