SYNOPSIS

For this exhibition, Llouquet eschews her usual paper support and takes her drawings into three dimensions. Klee described drawing as taking a line for a walk; Llouquet’s lines become active subjects following an intuitive journey that twists, winds and entangles. They are characters that communicate and interact with human figures.

The exhibition can only be accessed through a delicate curtain that spans the entire width of the gallery’s ground floor.  Projected onto the curtain of ‘ready-made’ lines of over 10,000 single strands of white thread will be an animation highlighting the movements of an individual line.

Color is presented sparingly in the exhibition through pale blue neon lights suspended by tangles of cables from a stylized ‘cloud’ of thin metal sheets. The sculptural installation suggests industrial rain that is surprisingly poetic and beautiful, if dangerous and harmful.

In addition to her drawings in space, Llouquet will also exhibit sculptures and works on paper. Resembling puppets, cut-out plexiglass and cut-out paper drawings depict figures that are comically frightening and sinister.  Hiding, disguise, invisibility and transparency are themes prevalent throughout the show and embodied in figures in costumes, masks and various guises.
