'Into the Woods' at the Galerie des Galeries
Just opened at the Galerie des Galeries, this group show “Into the Woods”, put together by Daria de Beauvais, curator at the Palais de Tokyo. The spooky show zigzags between contemporary romanticism and a gloomy minimalism. Dreamed up as a walk in the woods, the show limns a phantasmagoric mental landscape through the work of eleven women artists. Painting, sculpture, drawing, video, sound art and installations, the techniques employed vary widely, starting us along a path that is full of mystery. Recollections of fairytales and woodland folklore are hinted at, while the artworks themselves loom up like incantations.
Until 17 March. Tue-Sat, 9.30am-7.30pm (9pm, Thu).
