Back in Paris after a year in Italy, the French artist pursues his interest for language and polymorphic objects, in a thorough and sharp research on the irrational.

He presents a body of new sculptures in which plaster, aluminum, wood, metal, leather or textile are combined with everyday objects. Frozen in their new shape, these objects lose their original function entering a metamorphosis. The object-sculpture becomes tense, resists categorizations and opens up to an imaginary dimension, where ghostly presences materialize eluding definitions.

In the labyrinthine walk across the space, plaster masks and faces appear, intertwined ceramic tongues talk to one another, fragments of texts poured into plaster balls are suspended at eye level.

The exhibition unfolds then almost as a declaration of love to existence and to the body beyond the tangible.
