Anne SLACIK was born in Narbonne in 1959 ; she now divides her time between Saint-Denis and the Gard.
She won the Painting Prize awarded by the Fondation Fénéon in 1991.
Since 1981, numerous solo exhibitions have been dedicated to her works, notably at the Centre d’Art in Gennevilliers, the Théâtre de St Quentin in the Yvelines, the Library of the Carré d’Art in Nîmes, the Musée Pierre André Benoît in Alès, the Bibliothèque Municipale in Strasbourg and the Musée de Gap.
In 2012, the Musée d’Art et Histoire in Saint-Denis, in partnership with the Museum in Cayla, in the Tarn, devoted a large exhibition to her work, including a momograph, with text by Bernard Noël (published by IAC-Ceysson). In 2013, several solo exhibitions were held : at the Musée Ingres in Montauban, the Musée Rimbaud in Charleville-Mézières, the Museum of the Ardennes, and the Centre for Contemporary Art in Arcueil.
In 2014, the Forney Library, the History Library of the City of Paris, held an exhibition of her illustrated books and her canvases and, in 2015, seven separate exhibitions were held in the Yvelines, one notably at the Musée National de Port Royal des Champs, to reflect the different aspects of her painting. A new monograph was also published at the same time.
In 2016 and 2017, she exhibited at Victor Hugo’s house in Paris, on the theme of his poem “La Pente de la Reverie”, also a solo exhibition at the Museum in Périgueux. In 2018, the Paul Valéry Museum in Sète organized an exhibition of her work, “Petits Poèmes Abstraits”, consisting of large paintings and illustrated books. In 2019, the Library at the Carré d’Art in Nîmes celebrated the acquisition of a collection of 130 books of illustrated manuscripts. There was also a solo exhibition at the Centre d’Art in Bédarieux.
In 2020, the Manoir Michel Butor in Lucinges, in Haute-Savoie, will devote one of their first exhibitions of monographs to her large paintings, works on paper and illustrated books.
Colour remains at the heart of her artistic journey, applied in various media to her large canvases, painted in her books and on manuscripts, as a possible go-between, painting and books, painting and poetry.
