Amandine Meyer

in collaboration with Fondazione Nuovi Mecenati, Museo internazionale e biblioteca della musica, Alliance française di Bologna

French artist Amandine Meyer is still relatively unknown in Italy. And that is a pity, since her works – whether made of paper, glass, pottery or  one of the many materials she uses in her creations – are a pleasure for the eyes and a provocative challenge for the mind. Meyer plays with childhood imagery and its clichés, transporting them into a fantastic universe, seductive yet unsettling, that entangles the viewer and does not let him (or her) go.

Entering into Amandine Meyer’s exhibition means taking a step inside her luscious pop jungle, inhabited by little girls with braided hair, faceless children, Venus flytraps and funny small animals. Once inside, it is easy to get stuck into her enticing universe: pastel colors, elegant decorations, bizarre characters and her overall kitsch aesthetic invite us to look at the world with children’s eyes, to stop asking questions end allow ourselves to give in and play. Playing is indeed the major theme of the exhibition: walking around rolling dices, snakes and ladders, the exhibition itself becomes a game.
