Mister Killer & Lady Paranoia. Act I

From 30 June to 30 July 2011

Vernissage on June 30 at 6 pm

Act I Exhibition from June 30 to July 30, 2011

The strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is the founding idea of this double exhibition. A double exhibition whose aim is to reflect the duality of beings and creation, but also of the masculine and feminine poles residing in each of us. Mr. Killer incarnates the destructive, predatory part, the insatiable obsession that can lead to the collapse of creation. Lady Paranoia is the being who pays keen attention to the external world and rebels against the established order of things. As paranoia can be understood in terms of a swing between reality and imagination, she uses her extreme sensitivity to weave a personal and symbolic structure around her. She thereby establishes a different way of reading the world. This infernal couple merges into one person. In this personification, the artist is permanently situated between the constructive and the destructive sides.

Acts I honours Mr. Killer. Ten male artists gathered around this theme and will present works that have been specifically conceived for this exhibition. The American artist Russell Tyler will exhibit his works at our gallery for the first time. On June 30 from 6 pm.

Presentation and signing of the monograph on Andrew Gilbert “Andrew, Emperor of Africa”, in the presence of the artist. Mister Killer act I. Paintings, drawings and installation.
