"The Beauty & The Beast"

A Group Show in Lyon with PANAR, KYLAM, CHARLES THOMASSIN AND XEVI SOLA.

The enchanting theme of The Beauty and The Beast sets up during the 18th century, it’s an occidental fantasy tale that appears first with Miss Villeneuve literary creation and will then be used by Miss Leprince de Beaumont."

It quickly gained popularity in occidental culture, thanks to its pioneering modernity. We’d like to address the larger and more contemporary stakes of the tale, beyond the popular story. 

How to transpose the human being’s myth and duality in opposition to what’s considered beautiful and ugly.

What are today’s necessity to go beyond appearances, are we able to rule on artistic aesthetics’ different aspects?

In order to appreciate contemporary art, the observer must indeed provide an hermeneutic effort appealing to its own cultural background. The work offers but the observer, on the
basis of its culture and critic skills, disposes: he proceeds to its own recreation.

Can ugliness also be a factor of beauty? Can beauty underline the despicable tone of a literary work?

Aren’t pieces of work the reflection of the artist’s duality in which the representation of its ideal combines with the audience’s critical eye? The pieces of work shown today invite us to" question the esthetic, it’s about going past the work’s appearances and to construct its own analysis.
