MEMORY TO THE WORLD
from October 14th to Decemeber 31st 2019.
Sébastien Mehal proposes an architectural work on the grouping of buildings in urban areas in outlying areas. The original colors he uses are the colors of exile and the history of each of his exiles, these singular journeys.
As an observer of the urban world, the artist plays with cross-fertilization, pushing the bounderies of expression and the pictorial language of his artworks to the limits of abstraction.
Sébastien Mehal’s works are characterized by a minimalist aesthetic that develop in the viewer’s gaze. The artist’s work is also based on top-looking city plans, inspired by models of architectural projects. Industrial materials : aluminum, construction structures, LED lights are omnipresent in his creations.
Sebastien Mehal also likes to appropriate the public space with large sculptures made in industrial and noble materials : synthetic resins, black marble from Belgium, bronze.
Engaged alongside real estate actors for the rehabilitation of vacant places as part of an evolving urbanism, Hanna Ouaziz brings to life the notion of Poetic Habitat of the World by Friedrich Hölderlin (the origin of her agency called H.Art) .
During the FIAC 2019, from October 14th to December 31st, she chose to give a carte blanche to the artist Sébastien Mehal and to Anna Sansom, co-curator of the exhibition Memory to the world.
