This summer, Galerie Templon is showcasing contemporary drawing in an original and celebratory show featuring
Omar Ba, Abdelkader Benchamma, Norbert Bisky, Oda Jaune and Chiharu Shiota. The artists were invited to appropriate
the gallery walls and create an array of unique wall installations. The ephemeral works will be accompanied by a
new series of drawings produced specially for the exhibition.The five artists, members of the same generation and hailing from three different continents, Africa, Asia and
Europe, represent a globalised world where different cultures meet, mingle and merge. What their work has in common
is the role given to drawing, elevated to the same rank as painting, sculpture and installations. Their drawing practice
is thus given free rein to explore a range of tools, materials and supports as they cover the walls and appropriate the space.
