Lia Giraud (SACRe doctoral program) at the Galerie Jocelyn Wolff
Until March 2, Lia Giraud (Dr. SACRe) is exhibiting her work as part of Hot Dilute Soup at the Galerie Jocelyn Wolff.
The "primordial soup" (hot dilute soup) is an expression used by scientists to designate an environment conducive to the appearance of the first living organisms. In this "little hot pond", the origin of life itself has manifested itself through a series of chemical reactions. There would therefore be a solution of continuity, a zone of permeability between the inorganic and the organic, between the inert and the living. The image of the "primordial soup" - this fluid environment where life forms are still undifferentiated, resulting from a primitive alchemical process - does not refer so much to the various scientific hypotheses that flow from it as to its suggestive potential to evoke an aesthetic of formlessness and metamorphosis. The path of this exhibition follows this sensitive and pre-discursive model of the perception of forms, favouring the passage from one state to another and the material modalities of these formal transitions.
