Carlos Issa (Brasil) artist in residence during January and February

Homesession continues to collaborate with Galeria Sé in Brazil by receiving this year the artist Carlos Issa who will be a resident of Homesession during January and February, before leaving for the Feria Arco in Madrid.

He is well known by his experimental music project funded em 1999 called Objeto Amarelo that explores the various layers of sound either in the studio and in the stage and was one of the first groups to be presented in art galleries in Brazil, he has a few albums that dialogue with the live performance without reproducing it , they collaborate with many important names of Brazilian music. As Objeto Amarelo, Carlos Issa also developed a very powerful visual language used in the covers and posters of the band.

His practice also operates within a broader field; he has organized and participated in independent exhibitions applying DIY exhibition display methods which anticipated, at the end of the 1990’s, the multiplicity of means  and vehicles for the circulation of art, both inside and outside of the market. He has worked as a curator of experimental music events and art collectives such as “Supercollina”, at Galeria Logo, and “Conversão”, at Galeria Sé, both in São Paulo, Brazil. He has participated in group exhibitions both in Brazil and abroad, such as “Tropical Funk” at Whitechapel Gallery in London and “Dobra”, at Ferme du Buisson, in Paris. He had a solo exhibition that was held in 2017 at NADA. Since 2018 he has being represented by Sé and had his first solo show fully dedicated to his contemporary visual practice.

Thierry Liegeois, artist in residency November and December

Thierry Liegeois is the artist in residence during the months of November and December, as part of the Exchange program between art3 (Valence France) and Homesession. The Exchange program is supported by Institut Ramon Llull and the Région Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes.

Thierry Liegeois was born in 1983 in Montbéliard (France). He worked as a machine programmer and operator before joining the ENSBA Lyon where received a DNSEP in 2010.
After showing his work in the Modules of the Palais de Tokyo in 2012 and participating to the IAC Villeurbanne Galeries Nomades program, Liegeois was invited for personals exhibitions, including Le syndrôme Murray Futterman with the collective Or Nothing in Brussels in 2013, Cacography at Lab 47 in 2015 and Glitch City at Unicorn Center For Art in Beijing in
2016, Wet Hill at the Renaud Foundation during the Biennale de Lyon, and Off Cells at Le 19, Crac, Montbéliard in 2017.
He was included in various collective exhibitions, including Machination(s), Galerie Eric Mouchet, Paris, Les Hommes de la Mancha, Double V Gallery, Marseille, and Jörmungandr Hybraxxx, Wonder/Liebert, Bagnolet.
Thierry Liegeois’ researches take the form of a reflection on the present as a cluttering, non-ideal environment. His pieces, usually relying on a playful confrontation of symbols and references, are infused with a critical stance — sometimes with humor — toward class discrepancies and the social
and aesthetic divides in which we live. The sites he explores are usually associated to popular, vernacular genres, the terrains where counter and subcultures grow. Liegeois’s installations mobilize and blend sculpture, stage design, the diversion of objects, video and sound, seeking to closely relate the work to its context of production and exhibition.

Tom Holmes. Artist in residence. Dec 2015-Jan 2016


Tom Holmes, in recent residencies has created microcosmic environments that transport him via memory to the countless images that make up one’s visual file. Iconography, rituals and haptic movement across pictorial enlargement bind to the gestures of the body, drawn in a collected abstraction. Objects found right off the shelf, the waste is reused, scanned and intervenes as billboards sized volumes. Hypnosis allows the artist to reach a state of unconsciousness awareness in which the drawing is characterized by a submission of will, that is the act of painting, a transfer of knowledge, memories, and intuition in space consumed by trama, appearing on canvas as new meanings.
