The exhibition

Géraldine Bloch : You will soon open two simultaneous exhibitions at the Domaine de Chamarande. One is a retrospective of your work, while the other, curated by you, will be collective and dedicated to the sheep. In what way is it a "hyper-animal" according to you?
Art Orienté Objet : Yes, it's a big retrospective, a bit particular because it only includes animal pieces and, already there, we had to make a choice. So we propose an inner journey towards the understanding of the living, which emphasizes this reality that we became aware of very young: the animal is in danger and suffering more than ever, its cause is historical, and we did not want to miss history ... even if the first peoples have told us much that history was an outdated vision of the world.
As for the "sheep" exhibition, we wanted to invite other artists around this very particular figure, indeed a "hyper-animal", at the same time victimized, mocked, manipulated, but also adored, humanized... in short, a familiar animal that seems to embody the most exacerbated emotions that man has with regard to the other forms of life on earth.
