The gallerist, the letter and the garden, the second solo exhibition by French-Lebanese artist Charbel-Joseph H. Boutros in the gallery.
Organized around three "environments," the exhibition presents 10 conceptually connected new works and is intended to be seen as a "garden", where a suspended walkway will be the only passage through which the gallery staff will be able to circulate throughout the whole duration of the exhibition. For Boutros, art exhibitions are a unique place in which art can stress the rigid structures of reality. Gallery staff, artist and visitors become one body, that intertwines with the body of the exhibition.
