Dont Miss Grotta Profunda in London

If You have not seen Pauline Curnier-Jardin's master piece Grotta Profunda you will soon have the opportunity to do so in London as part of the exhibition "Once upon a time there were two knights" at Nettie Horn. Other artists participating Julie Béna, Hippolyte Hentgen, Invernomuto.

This is what 

curator by Barbara Sirieix writes: The exhibition brings together works that relate to mythologies within a frame of expanded practices. From Ancient and Modern references, the artists reshape new figures of fascination and wonder as storytellers: jigsaw knights, the Venus of W, The Mermaid-monkey or the mysterious B.O.B. They lean towards performativity within composite media displays - film, sculpture, tapestry, photographs - challenging the cinema apparatus as well as experimenting with media synthesis and collages of disparate fragments of vision.

Narrativity seems to be generalized as normative to define the ordinary human experience and used as a weapon of mass distraction. In the context of the "narrative" where marketing agencies and political strategists worship the power of the individual story, the artists formulate their narratives through a kaleidoscopic approach of idiosyncrasy to figure ways to reconsider fantasy. They often work with four hands therefore challenging the potential of originality and their projects expand beyond the exhibition space with trailers, costumes, accessories, drawings or texts as tactics to dismantle linearity.
