Intro
A highly developed technique enthusiast, Marion Delarue uses materials ranging from mother-of-pearl to Korean natural lacquer, coloured porcelain, and bird feathers.

Artist list

Marion Delarue
She tells the story of a transfigured, reinvented and transformed nature where stones grow geometrically, siamese snakes keep their handlers' company; flesh is shaped by enigmatic rules; shells shelter men’s topknot buns and where birds’ mores are mysterious and impenetrable.
Nothing is as it first appears in this hodgepodge of curiosities, as the strategy of illusion prevails: the Ostrich Policy.

Opening

Sunday, 3rd of February, from 3 pm to 6 pm.

Marion Delarue. Bracelet: Monsters for Company, 2013. Hand-modeled Korean black porcelain.. 10 x 3 x 8 cm. In Korean mythologies, some creatures bring luck to the one who touches them, who runs into them, or even catches sight of them. The snake, when he shows signs of strangeness, is one of those: Indeed, he is then being considered as a dragon to-be. Made in South Korea during the Snake’s year, this «lucky charm-companions», «peculiar siamese friends » or «monsters for company» have to be worn together, on both of their owner’s wrists, in order for him to be « well-surrounded ». .
