What forms take our emotions or dreams? Four artists respond with amazing and varied polymorphic visions. Coming from all corners of the world, four talents rarely seen in Paris confront their organic worlds in an explosion of colors and shapes from December 7 to January 11.

About

Shapes and Illusions, or how forms play with our perception, delude us, and surprise us. The artists here not only play with classical forms of art by overstepping the classical space in which one would expect to find them, but they also play with our eyes. 1010 captures us in its colorful fault lines that seem to pierce the wall. Okuda breaks down our vision as though through a kaleidoscope and hypnotizes us with his rainbow shapes all made up of angles and facets.

The other two artists seek, even more than the illusion, to translate the “organic” by means of the plastic form. Dan Lam's expanded foam objects inhabit the exhibition space like organisms of a new kind, combining surprising shapes and neon colors. Between fantasy world and child’s dream, she amuses us, while constantly surprising us by the audacity of lines in her work. Jan Kalab, in response to these small creatures of a thousand spikes, creates large, perfectly smooth swathes of color whose stretched canvases are not only the backing but turn into three-dimensional objects, relief on the wall, embodying the colors.

Everyone here creates his own vocabulary of forms. Presented for the first time together in the remarkable exhibition “Watch this Space” in London, among twenty other artists, Okuda, Dan Lam, 1010 and Jan Kalab are reunited again for a great moment of colorful abundance that will not fail to be a bright spot in the Parisian winter.
