Artist list

Delphine Joly
The narrative jewellery presented by Delphine Joly during her first solo exhibition is greatly surprising.
Strengthened by mixing genres (fashion, design, jewellery), sources (theatre, circus, childhood) and styles (personification, sarcastic laugh), such narrative discontinuity excludes any circumscribed definition for this diversified work.
It is rather through the redundancy of the materials and objects that can be found out, over the course of the wearable stories, her vocabulary and coded messages that personify her original artwork fantastically.
In her creative and often quite long process, Delphine Joly is not concerned about smoothing her artistic style. Even if it is laborious, all stories must lead to a conclusion. The body related objects are like a book and have all a narrative dimension. Assisted by her imaginary and unconscious, the leather, silver, messing and copper are used today to help her writing. Tomorrow, there will be other stories, materials, and jewels.

Remarks

Opening on Wednesday 18th April 2012 from 6 to 9 pm.
