MARSO and Desiré Saint Phalle present a solo show by Jean-Luc Moulène, curated by Michel Blancsubé.

Opening Tuesday February 6th, 2018 at 19 hrs.

Responding to an invitation from MARSO gallery to Desiré Saint Phalle, Jean-Luc Moulène will show around 20 works that bring together some of his most recent protocols. Moulène has found in the mathematical knot theory a forceful tool to experience the matter and complexity, allowing to underline and interpret new figures. In the manner of a scientist, after a constant search, he discovers; he shows things that escape the sight of people who are in a hurry; these little nothings, anonymous and anodynes secrets that constitute reality.
