Galerie Chantal Crousel is pleased to host Mimosa Echard's first solo exhibition in which will be presented a selection of her new works.
Mimosa Echard's practice is inspired by the creation of hybrid eco-systems where the living and the non-living, the human and the non-human coexist. Her works explore areas of contact and contamination between the organic objects and consumer items—elements that can be perceived as ambivalent or even contradictory through our cultural conventions. Mindful of the life of things, Mimosa Echard wonders about the movements of elements and objects still imperceptible. Her intellectual and plastic path goes through a sensual relationship to the materials that inhabit her studio and which she infuses with one another.
'Mimosa Echard's work gives access to a world where everything interpenetrates and transforms, an orgiastic world where desire shows its fangs and pleasures compose a revolted alphabet in an obscure voice.' — Romain Noël
