22,48 m² is pleased to present HYLÉ, Cécile Beau’s third solo show at the gallery.
In ancient Greek, the word "hylé" refers to the matter a thing is made. A matter formed by a moving assemblage of elements a priori heterogeneous, not an unchanging matter which remains the same.
Cécile Beau offers us this experience of reality as a continuum where vegetal, mineral and animal are no longer autonomous kingdoms, separated from each other, but are on the contrary intertwined in meshes of interconnections and reciprocal influences.
The artist invites us to enter in a plant-covered cave as if we were reaching a chimeric world which is real.
