“Lightness” at Less is More Projects, Paris
“Lightness” brings together eight artists: Sandra Aubry & Sébastien Bourg, Adam Dix, Simon Fujiwara, Mari Minato, Jonathan Monk, Han Ren, Jack Strange, Jocelyn Villemont, whose work tries to find this existential function of art that is the search for lightness as a reaction to the weight of living.
“Lightness” goes with precision and determination, not with vagueness and the haphazard, it appears here as a value rather than a defect. Melancholy and humor, inextricably intermingled. The starting point of this group show is Six memos for the new Millenium by Italo Calvino.
