To close its exhibition program for 2023, Galerie Loft invites you to dive into the captivating world of science fiction through the unique creatures of Quentin Garel. All his “Monozygotes” will take over the space at 4 rue des beaux-arts!
“A chainsaw as a pencil, I play at feeding this gallery of portraits, sometimes taking the form of a mask, a skull or a fragment of a mandible, and continuing, according to desires or encounters, my slow evolution in the land of animal singularities.”
When he shapes his works, Quentin Garel works with the material with an obvious love for organic forms. Exploring their materiality while deliberately playing with our perceptions, its changes of scale, sometimes excessive or hybridized, disturb our representation of what exists. For Christine Argot and Luc Vivès, in his Osthéomorphoses “he combines the Beautiful and the False, which nevertheless seems true – a distorted, falsely specular reflection of reality! He is a naturalist artist, collector of extraordinary skulls gleaned from his mind.” In his work on the Monozygote, a phantasmagorical bird skull in a tripod, he thus crystallizes in the same work his concern, but also a certain derision, for the destiny of animals, as much as humans, in the heart of a world in full swing. mutation.
On this occasion, come and discover the new work “Monozygotic” from the collection Art For All by Galerie Loft.
