Individual exhibition, until December 23rd 2012.

Pascale Monnin (Haiti) exhibits her latest artworks at the Galerie 16 of Yverdon. Her sculptures and paintings have a polymorphic and mysterious feature to them, staging animals which seem unreal, almost human and often ephemeral.

The artist speaks of her work as follows: « These characters, these animals which live in my paintings are a little like gods, spirits of a mythology that belong to me. They whisper something that I cannot completely grasp, they speak of the living, of the dead. They speak about me, but their language is coded and I can’t quite understand them. Fellow travelers they are at times friendly, terrible, defenders or manipulators, they send back in mirror image wanderings, poetry and doubt » © Galerie Monnin
