The artist takes over the museum and its garden in his biggest solo show in Paris since the retrospective at the Centre Pompidou in 2011. For the occasion, with more than 70 new artworks, Othoniel has invented The Narcissus Theorem, about a man-flower who, in reflecting himself, reflects the world around him. Othoniel weaves a web of unreality, enchantment, illusion and liberation of the imagination. Rivers of blue bricks, Lotus, Necklaces, Crown of the Night, Wild Knots, and Precious Stonewall are hidden in the architecture, placed on the water mirrors of the pools, hanging from trees; new works dialogue with the architecture of the Petit Palais and the golds of its garden. The exhibition is a message of opening, freely given to the public. Placed under the sign of re-enchantment and the theory of reflections that the artist has been developing for going on ten years in a dialogue with the Mexican mathematician Aubin Arroyo, this exhibition is an occasion to dream and, as long as it lasts, to resist the disillusionment of the world.

Artist(s): Othoniel, Jean-Michel
