Explosion of Joy (“Fous Rires”) by the winning artist of GemlucArt 2016, will be on show at the Adriano Ribolzi Gallery from September 15 to September 30.
Corinne Chauvet, who wonders about the ambient moroseness of her country of France, will present a series of sculptures that are communicative and refreshing. Why in France, which she loves so much, do people not smile but complain? While we have everything to be happy about, she says, in some less affluent countries, people smile, are even cheerful.
In response to these questions, Ms Chauvet explores conversations and social exchanges and her sculptures offer the mirror of the best of ourselves.
She has received numerous sculpture awards in France and has exhibited in Brussels and Japan as part of an artists’ residency.
Paulo Costa, a Bossa Nova master commented on Ms Chauvet’s work, saying; “When our mother earth is touched by the hands of a fairy, it is our soul that is directly touched.”
The artist will give a lecture on September 14 at 5 pm, at the Gallery, which is located at 3 avenue de l’Hermitage.
