Michel Blazy & Mimosa Echard, Dortmunder Kunstverein, Dortmund, March 16 – May 26, 2019
The two French artists Michel Blazy (* 1966 in Monaco, lives in Paris) and Mimosa Echard (* 1986 in Alès, lives in Paris) share a strong interest in the organic. For Blazy, it is closely related to nature and its power of growth, for Echard more closely linked to the human body. For example, in a work by Blazy a relief-like pattern of colorful mildew grows out of a wall painted with tomato paste, while Echard sculptures and paintings associate materials such as wax, plants, technical objects, ready-mades and images and combines them with fabric, epoxy resin or other sticky liquids.
