KRYSTEL ANN ART

Founded in 2016 by a couple of Guadeloupe collectors (French West Indies), Krystel Ann Art is a contemporary art gallery based in Portugal. After several years of exhibitions in "pop-up" galleries in Europe, we have chosen to open our Physics space in Quinta do Lago, Portugal.


We give visibility to Afro-descendant artists, coming from the crossing of Africa, Europe and the Americas, while remaining open to contemporary artists of other origins. Originality in expression and the affirmation of a singularity in the aesthetics offered are at the heart of our selection.


Our central commitment is to create a positive dialogue on contemporary subjects and the problems of people from the African diaspora. We believe that art projects can bring people together, in a more inclusive society.


Since our opening, we collaborated with institutions, and we produced artistic projects with the objective of bringing original and unique points of view. We have participated in international fairs (Switzerland, Portugal, Russia).


Our desire to spread particular cultures on the five continents leads us to have a global approach by promoting discussions on art and music, performances, short moves.

    AKAA 2021

    09 Nov 2021 – 18 Nov 2021

    Krystel Ann Art view room of our AKAA Paris/ boot C3 The artists Giana De Dier and Leticia Barreto, presented by Krystel Art gallery at AKAA, Paris France 2021, offer mixed media collage artworks that show process of self-care, identity awareness and positionality. De Dier’s works question the visibility of West Indian history in her country, Panama, Central America. She rediscovers her Caribbean descendance thanks to the haptic communication she entails with that act of creating frames from the archival images of unknown West Indians workers during the Panama canal’s construction. While using imagination as a healing tool to fill the gaps of the West Indian history in the country, she combines the “tiles” of archival images with her family memories. Her works show black Caribbean female sociability and their possible unwritten herstories. The collage allows the artist to unveil and discover “pieces” of herself that she is not aware of them, yet. Barreto’s selected artworks started during the lockdown in Portugal. In Diário da Quarantena she shows her felt reality ripped by the feelings of fear and worry for her mother country: Brazil. However, the artists with her next Series, Kintsugi or Staring Over, decided to “mend” and heal her dissected, “pieced” self, appropriating the Japanese technique with the same name. She sutured her in-visible wounds, while connecting with the Brazilian action of "gambiarra", translatable as “a quick fix”. The artist’s work matured into the act of embracing her national ability and mannerism, allowing to fix herself in the final selected collage Viver é rasgar-se e remendar-se : “Living is a ripping and mending”.

    REFRACTION

    05 Aug 2021 – 25 Aug 2021

    Refractions The refraction is an effect of a ray of light deflected and turned; in the atmosphere, it can be seen in mirages, green rays, and rainbows. This exhibition follows metaphorically these light’s paths, showing people’s inner realities, cohabitation between human and non-human, and identity visibility. With the work of the artist Christophe Mert, we are presented to a scarified afrodescent woman’s face. Those scratches have the semblance of colorful wounds that uncover the darkness of her skin. Are they wounds of joy? Are they painful? Are they prayers? Through her uncovered paths, we are welcomed to experience her spiritual connection between her past and present. Continuing with the works of Françoise Sémiramoth, she invites us to dive into the florescent nature of Guadeloupe, where the seminal chef oeuvre Caravaggio is reinterpreted in new shapes and somatic realities from the Caribbean standpoint. She proposes a unity act between human and nature, where this last one regains luxuriant texture from its historical representation, almost swallowing the human being that cohabits and integrates its excessive colors, sounds, spaces, and dimensions. This curatorial narration continues with Leticia Barreto's works, which show us existential footprints of afrodescent women who are paradoxically invisibilized through their hypervisibility in Brazilian society. The motifs on the background of the paintings stand out as they react from their background-ness, fulfilling the blinding whiteness of the black women’s silhouettes. The three artists let us cross as we were light rays different mediums of Tropical spaces, revealing us refractions realities to see, live and learn from. Maica Gugolatti, Phd

    COLOR CODICE

    23 Oct 2020 – 19 Nov 2020

    Krystel Ann Art présente Color Codice, une exposition des oeuvres aux Poscas et de sérigraphies de l'artiste Guadeloupénne Françoise Semiramoth. Inspirée des oeuvres de l'artiste Baroque Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio. Color Codice, ou code de la couleur, offre une lecture multidimensionnelle du travail de Françoise, où la couleur est un élément majeur. L'artiste utilise des codes couleurs tant pour définir l'espace-temps de ses oeuvres que pour y faire référence à la société du XVème siècle, période des grandes conquêtes maritimes européennes avec en filigrane l'instauration du code noir et du génocide amérindien. Color Codice, invite à la réflection historique sur la face cachée des exploits des conquistadors, notamment dans les Caraïbes. Dans ces îles luxuriantes, la confrontation de deux civilisations aux uses et coutumes très différentes, a écrit la genèse du peuple créole. Ce Caravage créole, est comme l'exprime l'écrivaine Maryse Condé, dans son texte dédié au travail de Françoise Semiramoth, une cannibalisation des oeuvres de l'artiste italien. Chrystelle Merabli Krystel Ann Art Krystel Ann Art presents Color Codice, an exhibition of works with poscas and silkscreen technique by the Guadeloupean artist Françoise Semiramoth. Inspired by the works of the baroque artist Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio. Color Codice, or color code, offers a multidimensional reading of Françoise's work, where color is a major element. The artist uses color codes both to define the space-time of his works and to refer to the society of the 15th century, the period of the great European maritime conquests with the establishment of the black code and the amerindian genocide. Color Codice invites historical reflection on the hidden face of the exploits of the conquistadors, especially in the Caribbean. In these lush islands, the confrontation of two civilizations with very different uses and customs, wrote the genesis of the Creole people. This Creole Caravaggio, is, as the writer Maryse Condé expresses it, in her text dedicated to the work of Françoise Semiramoth, a cannibalization of the works of the Italian artist.
