Caroline Achaintre, Fantômas, De La Warr Pavilion, Jan 20 – Apr 29 2018
Caroline Achaintre presents her new solo show « Fantomas » at the De la Warr Pavilion at Bexhill-on-Sea (England).
New series of ceramics and wall hangings were produced whilst undertaking a joint residency between the De La Warr Pavilion and West Dean College, founded by British poet Edward James, a Surrealist protector.
For Achaintre, the mask is a place where fantasy and reality can exist at the same time. Her practice resonated with pre-surrealist litterature with the famous reference to the masked criminal « Fantomas ».
