27 APRIL > 02 SEPTEMBER 2019

Golden Room, treasure room or cave of Ali Baba: it’s the mythical place of all the searchers of gold, of all the Eldorados. A marvelous space, a treasure in which one finds oneself immersed, shimmering, anachronistic mixture of all eras, of all civilizations, up to the most contemporary.

The works of :mentalKLINIK play precisely on the universal attraction of sparkling and seductive objects, encrypting true and false, the fake and the superficial, as if everything were a matter of falsification.

Artists: :mentalKLINIK, Mircea Cantor, Kendell Geers, Thomas Lélu, Olga De Amaral.

Curators: Jérôme Sans and Jean-Max Colard, with Isabelle Bernini.
