Metamorfosi, Cécile Beau, Nicolas Boulard, Jean-Baptiste Caron, Charlotte Charbonnel

22.48m2 and LABS Contemporary Art are pleased to present an exchange project between the cities of Paris and Bologna. The initiative arose from the desire of Alessandro Luppi and Rosario Caltabiano, to promote the vision and research of their artists and to expand their networks by presenting unpublished projects designed specifically for exhibition spaces.

Cécile Beau, Nicolas Boulard, Jean-Baptiste Caron and Charlotte Charbonnel will present "Metamorfosi" (Metamorphosis) which will open on Saturday, March 16, 2024 at LABS Contemporary Art gallery in Bologna.

Giulia Marchi and Marco Emmanuele will present the project "Puntinismo" (Pointillism) hosted by the Parisian gallery and opening on Sunday, March 3, 2024.

The "Metamorfosi" project investigates the relationship between man, matter and the environment that has always inspired artistic, scientific and philosophical imagination. Different artistic practices, straddling art and science, reveal to us that matter and its alteration are not only physical phenomena, but also the bearers of a dreamlike power that accompanies us toward a deeper understanding of ourselves and our contemporary world.

For the exhibition, the diverse practices of the four French artists Cécile Beau, Nicolas Boulard, Jean-Baptiste Caron and Charlotte Charbonnel find a meeting point in the observation of nature and the human gaze on it.

The selected works constitute a protean landscape that investigates the power of nature in its fragmentary condition and through its perpetual state of transformation. By examining the results of chemical, physical or geological phenomena, one will thus have the opportunity to deconstruct the simplistic reading of a nature only and exclusively sublimated or demonized.


Opening Saturday, March 16

On view until May 12, 2024.

LABS Contemporary Art, Bologna, Italy
