Nicolas Guiet exhibition at the Jean Fournier Gallery, 10th January – 16th February 2019

Nicolas Guiet has a way with naming his creations. Recent pieces have been called skejerfh, tfygukhjlk and yiproéjuomtfup. Or perhaps it’s just his cat walking over the keyboard of his laptop.

This new exhibition at the Galerie Jean Fournier near our hotels is called wrsetxdrycftvygbhkunijlko (pronounced as it is written), with geometric works featuring bold colour and… a lot of ambiguity.

Completely open to the viewer’s interpretation, the works of Nicolas Guiet look like they’ve been produced by an algorithm gone wild in a world where computers have become artists.

This new exhibition features three large-scale works to contemplate: ihugyfjhdgf, dnchkl and a brand new full wall installation called all over (you can see an Instagram photo of it at the bottom of this article).

A new publication looking back at a decade of the artist’s installations and large-scale works is available at the gallery too.

It’s a limited edition of 800 copies, and one of them can be yours forever in exchange for a 20 euros.
