Flesh. A connectionbetween the body’s different parts, aconnectionbetweenhuman beings. We are, indeed, allmade of flesh: tender flesh, soft flesh, toned. Masses of flesh, young,fresh flesh, old, flaccidflesh, at every stage, flesh lives, vibrates, full of palpitations… Flesh existsbeyond the beat of the heart.

A source of passion, obsession, fascination, terror –its quantity, itsshapeand other characteristics, flesh is withus, always, in all its various manifestations. As our primary topography, it awakens us and it’s intense presencenever ceases to ‘tickle’ our curiosity, our senses, and in our wanderings connects, allowing fora sense of communion as well astranscendence. Sometimes flesh is only pain, disgust, loathing. Chère chair (Dear Flesh -Fabulous Flesh)sets out examine, to scrutinizethismatter that makes us who we are.

Farida Le Suavé’s sculptures are bothambiguous and dynamic: full of desire, languorous at times, closed on themselves and in flight at others… As for Jeremy Stigter’s photographs, if the camera’s lens appears painfully close, its subject, the female figure, seems strangely distant; a vague sense ofderision lends an odd touch to the display of so much flesh.Luminous shapes, profound obscurities, suggestive, even delicious, shadows… The eye is puzzled, not quite sure whatit beholds.
