Claire Morgan at Karsten Greve Gallery, Paris, until nov 3rd

Hurry up if you don’t want to miss the great show of a rising young artist in le Marais area, until saturday ! She’s only 32 years old (from Ireland , living in London)and very impressive for her artistic maturity and mastering of different disciplines and techniques : drawing, sculpture,  installation, and taxidermy ! I’ve already told about her last year  (nov 18th) when she exhibited (with Erik Nissbicker by the way) in Conciergerie. Actually I’ve noticed her for the first time at La Fiac last year and I’m still mesmerized by her work  which transcends  images of death (birds and/or insects) through a formal and technical display- a real performance actually- that plays with perception and space. A work in the same time symbolic, esthetic, optical and filled with poetry based on  artistic qualities -nooo, it’s not  a bad word ! and a great rigour in the execution , which is according to me another rare quality today. Enough of cheap and anti-art ! Don’t be afraid by the title of the exhibition “Quietus” with underlying images of death,  and let’s celebrate the birth of a great artist, you will see her name everywhere very soon for sure.
