Dip into human psyche with Gaillard and Claude

Last week, I went to one of my favourite gallery in Brussels MOT INTERNATIONAL where they have currently a show on portrait Repeated Affinity featuring works of Aleksandra Domanovic, Gaillard & Claude and Manfred Jade. Although I found the work of Domanovic and Jade very interesting – it is photography, I would like to show you the work of Brussels based duo Gaillard and Claude who create their own marble paper, which represent a mental “painting” of our mind.

MOT INTERNATIONAL describes the work of the artists as a portrait of a society:

“Both of the works Untitled from the series Le groupe et la famille by Gaillard & Claude are exposures of the human psyche. The artists have produced two pieces of unique marbled paper, together with a single handmade 250 gram pill of paracetamol. This combination of a trivial remedy, enlarged to give it the potential to heal hundreds of people’s headaches, together with the dense, abstract magma of the marbled paper, confronts the viewer with a simultaneously chaotic and calming nebula. The works can be described as atmospheric portraits, in which a group of individuals is depicted in eternal motion between the personal and the collective.”

Unfortunately the show ran until 16 March, but I am sure there will be other occasions to see the work of the duo.
