The artists first solo exhibition takes you on a trip in her imaginary world.
In this exhibition Magali Thibault Gobeil combines two of her wild collections; Somebody got crazy with the Candy Machine and Funky Obsession. Both represent well her quest of research through materials, forms and colors and push the boundaries of contemporary jewellery. The pieces presented in this exhibition make you think about what you are contemplating. What are they? Bib? Toys? Candies? Jewellery? These crazy, attractive and interactive forms not only requestion the idea of jewellery but also involved all our senses. We want to eat them, to touch them, to smell them. They apprehend some exchange, some dialogue with the world and people around them. They make our bodies more alive and filled with emotion. No matter what, this exhibition definitively make you smile and fill you with a sentiment of satisfaction. We all need that little break to full our body with a bit of joy. Enjoy!
