Holy Daughters

January 14th to January 23rd, 2011

For the ‘Holy Daughters’ exhibition, the artist Prune Nourry has chosen milk, symbol of nourishment, as the central theme. She compares the Indian holy cow – sacred for its milk, a symbol of fertility – with the female condition in India. She creates hybrid sculptures of young women’s bodies with heifer heads – anthropomorphic models in bronze that she exposed in the streets of New Delhi for an in situ artistic event. A series of photos and videos relive the moment.

Pierre de l'Huisne at the Musée en Herbe

October 21st to January 5th, 2011

As part of the ‘Miniscule cuisine des doudous’ (‘Miniature Teddy Bears’ Kitchen’) exhibition, Martine Camillieri has invited Pierre de l'Huisne to expose his drawings at the Musée en Herbe.

At first glance, there appears to be one single picture. A closer look reveals lines running from one canvas to another, a random collision of different worlds that finally appears quite organized: a cherry tree in blossom alongside a field of ruins, a rather magic mushroom sheltering near a disused mill, a giant piece of cheese meeting a wandering cow… In black and white felt pen, these ‘Naiveties’ as he defines them show unreal, fantasy landscapes imagined by a childlike soul.
