Saint-Etienne, 27 May 2013, Art Media Agency (AMA).
From 23 May to 31 July 2013, the Bernard Ceysson Gallery in Saint-Etienne is to present works by Benjamin Mecz.
Art critic Alexis Jakubowicz has described Benjamin Mecz as being “like a child and his art, like a game”. Entitled “Taille Unique” Mecz’s exhibition presents sculptures and installations produced from simple objects- modest materials which “fragment, re-form, conglomerate or disperse”.
Amongst the diverse array of works on display is Queeny, a giant ant made of playing cards, around which the artist has spread hundreds of eggs containing taxidermied flies. Other notable works include Mille Lions (2011), a cube made of small toy lions, and Sans Titre (2012), a horse-shaped hanging created using razor blades threaded onto polyster cord.
