It featured drawings by Peter Roehr, Francesco Clemente and photographer Martin Parr

Presentation of the artist in focus

Alexandra Duprez has developed an intuitive approach to drawing and painting, drawing inspiration from outsider art and folk art. In her images, she evokes a phantasmagorical world close to a dream, populated by disturbing creatures, entangled shapes and multiplied eyes, between figuration and abstraction. At the centre of his work is the human body, a body that splits, fades away and transforms, to become a constantly changing being, half-animal, half-vegetable. By adding and covering, layer after layer, the artist creates what she calls "shreds of images", fragments of a constantly reinvented history with abundant ramifications. The eye wanders, as if into a metaphorical forest born from the artist's unconscious.
