Exhibition Agnès Thurnauer. A comme Boa

February 5 to June 26, 2022
The LaM invites the French-Swiss artist Agnès Thurnauer to present her work in dialogue with a few emblematic works from the museum's collection that she has specifically chosen. Born in Paris in 1962, Agnès Thurnauer has been, since the 1980s, developing a pictorial and sculptural work that explores the relationship between space and language with a very sensitive relationship to writing, which she practices almost daily.

Johan Creten : BESTIARIUM
La Piscine de Roubaix

March 12 to May 29, 2022

Johan Creten (b. 1963) is a major artist from the ceramic revival and is internationally recognized for his works, which, whether glazed terracotta or bronze dreams, create a worrying strangeness and play with a visual impairment that disturbs our representations as well as our commonplace. For the exhibition in Roubaix, conceived in partnership with the Almine Rech gallery, the artist will present, in addition to two emblematic works of his career - C'est dans ma nature (2001) and De Vleermuis (2015-2019), a metamorphic bas-relief and a monumental sculpture with the appearance of a bat, - a new ceramic set of seventeen beasts (Beasts)…

A boar stuck in a bloody mire, a fly asleep in the manner of a memento mori monument or a pelican petrified by an unfathomable sadness: here the bestiary is never naturalistic but symbolic, each animal making a sign towards the impalpable, between desolation and abandonment, impulse and melancholy. No still life here: everything is alive, everything pulsates and trembles. These falsely naïve animals are telling us about the political thickness of a world made of conflicts, struggles and resignations, but also made of joys, consolations and hopes. For if human beings are political animals, the world is the splendid theater of cruelty...
