Between contemporary romanticism and a gloomy minimalism, Into the Woods offers visitors an enigmatic aesthetic experience. Dreamed up as a walk in the woods, the show limns a phantasmagoric mental landscape through the work of eleven women artists. Painting, sculpture, drawing, video, sound art and installations, the techniques employed vary widely, starting us along a path that is full of mystery. Recollections of fairytales and woodland folklore are hinted at, read between the lines, while the artworks themselves loom up like incantations. Their apparent obscurity offers numerous portals into parallel worlds, where enchantment lies waiting for us. Between a semblance of rituals, a cabinet of dark works drawn perhaps from the black arts, and a final alchemical note, visitors get lost in the show, the better to find themselves along the way.
With pieces from Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann, Sophie Bueno-Boutellier, Susan Collis, Marcelline Delbecq, Mimosa Echard, Alicja Kwade, Maria Loboda, Anne Laure Sacriste, Iris Van Dongen, Jessica Warboys et Anne Wenzel.
