Tout se fige alors

Florence Girardeau
Solo show

Alberta Pane Gallery is pleased to present the first personal exhibition of French artist Florence Girardeau, born in 1980 and graduated from ENSBA in 2005. The title Tout se fige alors (So everyhing freezes), which is inspired by a phrase from Beckett's short story The lost ones(1970), seems to evoke a possible danger. Borrowing forms and dynamics from geological science, the pieces collected by the artist − objects, photographs, a video installation and a whole new series of drawings − keep their balance on the limits of stability.
