REMINDER – Hantu – Comme l’herbe pousse – opening at 5pm today

en français This afternoon at 5pm Hantu‘s exhibition ‘Comme l’herbe pousse’opens at the exhibition space 3, rue Française of Miss China via zoom. Hantu‘s latest works (photographs and drawings) are clearly a call to a rewilding. Objects that serve no purpose, that graft themselves onto the body to constrain it unnecessarily, photographs of performances that grow like these grasses, wise or foolish, insinuating themselves into the few spaces that we are still willing to leave them, the cracks, the gaps, the interstices, inviting us to nourish a ‘Saxifrage’ energy, to blow up… Read More

RAPPEL – Hantu – Comme l’herbe pousse – vernissage à 17h aujourd’hui

Cet après-midi à 17h, l’exposition de Hantu s’ouvre à l’espace d’exposition 3, rue Française de Miss Chine s’ouvre via le zoom. Les dernières œuvres (photographies et dessins) de Hantu sont clairement un appel à un ensauvagement. Des objets qui ne servent à rien, qui se greffent au corps pour le contraindre inutilement, des photographies de performances qui poussent comme ces herbes, sages ou folles, s’insinuant dans les quelques espaces que l’on veut bien encore leur laisser, les failles, les brèches, les interstices, nous invitant à nourrir une énergie saxifrage, pour faire sauter… Read More

Hantu – Comme l’herbe pousse – exposition à Paris, 11-17 novembre 2020

Avec un titre qui fait référence à Deleuze et Guattari et à l’importance « de penser au milieu et penser le milieu, (…) quitter la pensée-arbre avec ses hauts et ses bas, ses alphas et ses omégas, devenez un penseur-brin d’herbe qui pousse et pense ! »*, Hantu(Weber+Delsaux) présente leur travail sur les quatre niveaux de l’espace 3 Rue Française de Miss China. Penser le milieu devient aussi penser l’environnement. Il s’agit de sculptures végétales – des lits de germinations évoquant ceux qui servaient dans l’Egypte Ancienne à prouver que la vie se poursuivait après… Read More

Hantu – Comme l’herbe pousse – exhibition in Paris, 11-17 november 2020

en français With a title that refers to Deleuze and Guattari and to the importance of “thinking in the middle and thinking the middle, (…) leaving the tree-thinking with its ups and downs, its alphas and omegas, becoming a grass-thinker who grows and thinks! “, Hantu(Weber+Delsaux) present their work in ‘Comme l’herbe pousse’ on the four levels of the exhibition space 3 Rue Française of Miss China. Thinking about the middle here also becomes thinking about the environment. On show are plant sculptures – seedbeds reminiscent of those used in Ancient Egypt… Read More
