Marie Denis
Solo show

For her second solo show at the gallery, Marie Denis presents a new series of works that aim to uninhibit notions of beauty and decorative. The exhibition invites the visitors to widen their field of view, and multiply their senses when contacting sculptures ranging from the very large to the very small. Marie Denis wants above all to produce endorphin and to create pleasure with the perception of her works.
The exhibition's principle direction follows the ideas of customization and reemployment, which are manners of reinjecting research into forms already created. Deconstruct, reconstruct. From the Cambodian plastic bag to the peacock's feather, the artist transforms her sculptures and objects by revisiting the materials that constitute them.
