The showToxicité Radieuse (Radiant Toxicity) offers a snapshot of the artist’s experiments. Everything seems frozen and paradoxically in eternal movement. By using crystal liquid Ink on glass slides. Manon Bellet reveals to us, a chemical and thermal process which becomes visible only by the heat of the projector. The work slowly changes in the front of our eyes, it lives, and it survives under extreme heat, thus giving a living aspect to the work able to correspond to our own endangered environment in constant, perpetual change. The toxicity of the chemical mixture that would frighten us in a natural environment, ends up seducing us by its radiations.The installation, which includes slide Projection, and photography, opens Saturday, April 8th at Good Children Gallery with an opening reception at 6 pm.
