Photographer Jean-Christophe Ballot participates in the group exhibition "Carte Blanche" at the Cercle Suédois in Paris

Published on April 02, 2022

The Galerie Nathalie Béreau has organized an exhibition in the heart of a Haussmanien apartment on Rue de Rivoli, the Cercle Suédois,  for the first time.

The main theme of this exhibition is nature in the broadest sense of the word with the participation of three artists working with different techniques: Jean-Christophe Ballot (photographs), Isabelle Tournoud (drawings), and Charles Hair (ceramics). 

For this exhibition, Jean-Christophe Ballot proposes photographs from a trip he took in Australia in 2004. This includes images of the red desert in the center of the continent, the forest, or rocks from the northeast; images that suit the works by the other two artists wonderfully.

The Cercle Suédois was founded in 1891 in Paris. Established on the Rue de Rivoli, the center organizes events dedicated to Swedish traditions and culture (themed lunches, traditional parties...), as well as other gatherings connected to the zeitgeist (After Work, Thursday Apéro, brunches ...) for members and their invited guests.

This year, the Swedish Art Association (AAS) celebrates its 65th anniversary. Close to the artists, the association is very active: organization of exhibitions, valorization of the collection of works created since the beginning of the "Cercle", editions works of art each year, helps the exposed artists, and hosts artistic meetings and conferences.

Exhibition on view at the Cercle Suédois from April 6 - 22, 2022
