Quelqu’un m’a dit que le merveilleux était révolu…

Past: May 10 → June 23, 2012

With its dual affiliation, Christian and Moslem, Mehdi Lahlou-Georges uses his body to question the identity in all its forms.
Renewing the vocabulary of sculpture and image, all his work shows a tension that goes along with great freedom.

For his second solo show at Galerie Dix9, the artist presents his last self-portraits in the form of sculptures and photographs. He still plays on ambiguity through displacements that he operates with great talent.
Swinging over prejudices, the artist stands beyond the cultural borders which hold back our societies. Still on a burlesque style, sometimes close to the absurd, his montages try to confuse the issue by manipulating the images. Quelqu’un m’a dit que le merveilleux était révolu (Someone told me that the marvellous is over) is simply a new stage in his quest for freedom and emancipation from preconceived ideas.

Always in his singular approach that questions the image, Mehdi-Georges Lahlou provides, to the view as well as to the mind, a new and amazing regard on the beliefs, cultures and signs.

A work that embraces the marvellous.
