ONA project room is pleased to invite you to the exhibition "LE FILET” by Alizée Gazeau curated by Rio Usui for the ONA summer edition.
The paintings, which at first glance appear to be abstractions reminiscent of the cosmos or the micro-world, were painted with nets that Alizée uses in her production, blending directly into the picture plane along with the paint.
The net is an ancestral tool and has the peculiarity of being both held in hand and given away at the same time. The narrative of the material leads her into a dialogue with the work and a connection with others. Each color change gives a new perspective to the movement of the nets and their patterns.
The use of the net as a painting technique is a core element in the flow of her work. The netting creates a hollow-like shape, which she also finds in a piece of a horse's saddle. It is like scales, like traces of skin undergoing mutation/transformation.
"Mutation is a force, a way of metamorphosis. Its great force is expressed as a sculpture of a helmet with overlapping scales." she says.
Come and encounter Alizee's work and its space, where one motif mutates into another, softness and hardness, material and pattern!
