Paris: «François Mangeol
- Ashes to Ashes» at the Mannerheim Gallery
The notion of time is at the heart of the work of François Mangeol, a French artist passionate about semantics and philosophy. How to experience duration? What do we do with the time we have? Through various plastic systems, he produces a collection of mysterious figures which are so many avenues of answers. In this new exhibition, he proposes to travel through time and works in an attempt to discover their secret, to find meaning and to invite himself to become an actor in his own interpretation. The superposition of paint and material, more or less perceptible, offers different levels of reading. And the meaning, which is not always sketched, is set back to leave room for the emotion of the observer and the one who has taken the time to seek and discover.
Until February 25th. Www.mannerheimgallery.com
