Camille Henrot, Elizabeth Jaeger & Estelle Hoy

In a focused subterranean room of 5 rue du Pont de Lodi, “Carte Blanche” presents paintings by Camille Henrot along with invited artist Elizabeth Jaeger and author in residence Estelle Hoy. While developed separately, the operates exhibited in this spontaneous collaboration rhyme with each and every other, inciting a deep psychological place in the depths of kamel mennour gallery. In response to the visual works, a collaborative seem set up involving Henrot and Jaeger was built with a string and the crack of a doorway, making a whistling white sounds reminiscent of seems read when in the womb.

Introduced together with paintings by Henrot, Jaeger’s sculptures additional check out the angst of interiority and the connection among corporality, perception, consciousness and emotion. The walls are inhabited by anthropomorphic black ceramic vessels, put on metal buildings in a sport of surreal balances. The diffuse emotionality radiated by the vases is consciously broken by the hardness and severity of the metal plates. The miniatures alongside include people positioned inside of organic seemingly claustrophobic varieties. Some manifest expressions of pure existential dread, whilst others function shut narratives– tales that are noticed but whose particulars keep on being non-public.

Estelle Hoy offers texts in the gallery place that will also be released on the kamel mennour Instagram account as a weekly ‘feuilleton’ all through the duration of the exhibition. Explained to through the voice of an unreliable, amorphic narrator, Hoy’s character(s) appear to be to enact all of the numerous, conflicting impulses and emotions of everyday life and of our modern-day occasions.
