TCHIKEBE

  • GALLERY FOCUS: TCHIKEBE




  • Several questions for Olivier & Julien Ludwig-Legardez


    Introduce yourself
    We are Olivier & Julien Ludwig-Legardez, two brothers who are passionate about art and screen printing. Nine years ago, we created the Atelier TCHIKEBE, which brings together an art publishing house and a silkscreen printing workshop, in which the prints we produce are printed.

    Why did you decide to open a gallery in Marseille?
    Marseille has always been a city of artists, always attracting creative minds. In our opinion, it has a key role to play in the production of contemporary art in France. Creating our silkscreen printing workshop and our publishing house here was an obvious choice for us.

    Which event has been the most crucial since you opened your gallery?
    After six years in our current space, at the end of 2019 we will move to a new, larger, and ideally located space in the heart of a district that already features a large community of artists. This move will be an opportunity for us to give new dimensions to our project.

    How would you describe the relationship between your gallery and the artists you represent?
    As printers and publishers, our relationship with artists is always closely linked to the production of their works. It is through this "six-handed work" that a real relationship of trust is established, allowing us to forge lasting bonds with the artists we publish.

    How do you choose artists you work with?
    Our choices are above all guided by aesthetic satisfaction and a shared passion for studio work. We also like to collaborate with artists who are not well acquainted with the printed image because these encounters often lead to very beautiful projects.
