SISSI PRESENTS “LA REINE VEUVE”
INÈS DI FOLCO
Inès Di Folco’s canvases are shaped like floating narratives nourished by a contextualized and recomposed heritage. Filled with references to “microscopic events”, the paintings are composed like a happy blues inhabited by characters from her
close circle. They are mostly women, from her family or friends, looking elsewhere, and accompanied by multiple objects, flowers and colors filled with intimate symbols. These characters open the door to an inner melancholic and melodious
Léna Gayaud shapes in abundance objects which she diverts from their practical function, by altering their scale, their weight, their modelling. By leaving visible imperfections and fingerprints on her ceramics, she confers a tactile, sensitive
dimension to her works. Decorated with coloured enamels, and imbued with the memory of the mysterious forest of the Cévennes, where the artist partly lives in the medieval town of Sumène. Her creations populate a universe at the junction of
craftsmanship and magic. Léna Gayaud reval ues both a profession, but also the empowerment of the creative and mystical woman.
Opened in April 2019 by art historians Elise Poitevin and Anne Vimeux, the SISSI club creates links be tween university research and young Marseille creation. SISSI presents exhibitions, concerts, talks and performances.
