Exhibition - Epidermis

" This ancient 12th-century Romanesque abbey is the setting for works by Céline Martin and Claude Lory. There's plenty to discover and talk about here. "

Two artists, Céline Martin and Claude Lory, are exhibiting their creations in this former 12th-century Romanesque abbey.

The subject of the envelope permeates the two artists' research: touch, the healing process, plant reconstitution. When they visited the abbey, they were struck by its unusual location in the heart of nature and a working factory. They discovered skins and bark on the walls and machines, the result of paper pulp splashes. They then proposed a combination of their existing works and works created for this exhibition from material collected in the factory, in collaboration with employees. The subject of the envelope permeates the two artists' research: the sense of touch, the healing process, the reconstitution of vegetation.

Paper and wood were chosen for this installation. Apart from the fact that the paper is made from wood, there was a desire to talk more about the link between these 2 materials in the configuration of the site.

The paper material is present in the form of bubbles (blown paper), like a breath. Wood offers a chronology of life. It stands straight, proud and determined.
