Edouard wolton galerie les filles du calvaire paris exposition 111 1 grid Edouard Wolton — Interview Dans son exposition Ultima Thulé à la galerie Les filles du calvaire, Edouard Wolton réussit cette prouesse, à travers la grammaire de la peinture, d’accorder les deux langues de la rationalité et de la mythologie. Suspendue prématurément en ce début de printemps 2020, nous vous proposons de la redécouvrir en images aux côtés de son auteur.

For his first solo exhibition in a gallery, this young graduate (2010) from National School of Fine Arts of Paris presents a two parts scenography with works combining mathematics, geometry and the Natural. Through a study of minerals, luminous phenomena or geometrical theories, the artist establishes a link between different elements extracted from nature in order to incorporate them in a coherent and rationalised thought of the representation.

The title of the exhibition, Photométéores, refers to optical phenomena, resulting from a modification of the solar or the terrestrial light. The most frequent manifestations of it, like rainbows, shooting stars or twilights, impregnate our day-to-day lives.

Therefore, these processes, long fantasized, create an immaterial link between our atmosphere and the cosmos. Similar to luminous vortexes, his works associate sources of celestial and organic lights (coral, fireflies…) in order to recreate the best the order of the Natural.
