Into The Woods — Une exposition de Daria de Beauvais
Into The Woods
Une exposition de Daria de Beauvais
Past: January 26 → March 17, 2012
Between contemporary romanticism and a gloomy minimalism, “Into the Woods” offers visitors an enigmatic aesthetic experience. Dreamed up as a walk in the woods, the show limns a phantasmagoric mental landscape through the work of eleven women artists. Painting, sculpture, drawing, video, sound art and installations, the techniques employed vary widely, starting us along a path that is full of mystery. Recollections of fairytales and woodland folklore are hinted at, read between the lines, while the artworks themselves loom up like incantations. Their apparent obscurity offers numerous portals into parallel worlds, where enchantment lies waiting for us. Between a semblance of rituals, a cabinet of dark works drawn perhaps from the black arts, and a final alchemical note, visitors get lost in the show, the better to find themselves along the way.
Born in 1977, Daria de Beauvais is currently a curator at the Palais de Tokyo. She is also active as a freelance curator, programing for instance the Galerie Saint-Séverin in Paris.
In conjunction with “Into the Woods”, a catalogue is scheduled for publication along with a limited-edition print, numbered and signed by Anne Laure Sacriste.
