Le sommeil n’est pas un lieu sûr
July 1 – September 29, 2019
Presented at the Collection Lambert in the exhibition “Rêvez #2” in 2018, Miryam Haddad was selected in 2019 to create the poster for the 73rd edition of the Festival d’Avignon. The Collection Lambert is setting aside two rooms in its permanent collection space to present a series of her recent works.
These pieces reveal her influences, such as the colorful, vibrant paintings of James Ensor and Oskar Kokoschka in which grotesque figures gradually disclose subtleties and depths. Wandering through Haddad’s phantasmagorical world is a game as strange for the viewer as it is marvelous. Mad dances and variegated mythic forms constantly flirt with abstraction in intense colors and engender a mix of pleasure and uneasiness.
