> 20.01.2024 - 10.03.2024 : « Tu viens chercher, la nuit, les fleurs que tu cueillis » Espace d’Art Contemporain André Malraux, Colmar (FR)

Opening on January 19th, 6pm

This exhibition, dedicated to the iconography of water as a mirror of the soul and to the theme of the blossoming of sensuality in adolescence, is inspired by the great literary tales that have accompanied me in recent years: Shakespeare's Hamlet, the Grimm Brothers' Fairy Tales and Rimbaud's poems. I'll be exhibiting works from my illustration corpus, originals of book projects – including "De Concert", to be published in spring 2024 by L'Atelier du poisson soluble – as well as large-format free-form paintings and wall collages.

Many thanks to the City of Colmar and the team at Espace André Malraux for this invitation.
