The exhibition Sueurs Chaudes [Hot Sweat] delves into a sort of disquiet tinged with affection, and takes up darkness as a force of enlightenment in the Romantic sense of the word. Thus the interest in parricide, much in vogue during Romanticism, gives expression in the exhibition to the relationship to the mother: Mother Earth, Gaia, the most primal motherhood. Palpable anguish does not originate in paternal influence; the artists featured in the exhibition refuse to turn their backs on the past. And while the question of the body may be fundamental to horror stories, it is also at the center of “Sueurs Chaudes” where the female body leaves behind the realm of hyper-visibility to be revealed as fragments — catacombed, cryptic fragments, the spirit of the underground.
