the lightings of living cement | In Paris a show of metamorphism
Material changes, lives, transforms. The matter reflects endless suggestions, amplifies ideas, defines new logics of thought. It happens in Paris. Where cold cement also becomes a work that interacts with crystals, with words and poems. The unexpected meeting place is the Mineralogy Museum, which overlooks the lush gardens of Luxembourg in Paris. Here is the unusual exposition of Milène Guermont, a young French artist, protagonist of the creative scene of Oltralpe. Now more than ever with the Crystals exhibition.
 
Why is French criticism so much about the works of this artist who also has a degree in engineering in his curriculum? The answer is immediate: the crystals or cement that make up Guermont's work express a concept that is becoming more and more valuable in the world of art and creativity: the need to highlight the moment of passage, transformation, becoming of A work through the becoming of matter itself. Nothing is fixed. The crystals demonstrate it as they are the result of the transition from a disordered liquid state to a solid ordered state, controlled by complex kinetic laws. Yet each crystal tells a unique, personal story.
 
As evidenced by Planètes sauveges, an installation consisting of polychrome balls and optical fibers. Each planet tells its story through a singular form, made of interaction with other materials, of reaction to the process of machining. It communicates it with a personal porosity, with lights and shadows describing a profile different from all others.
Of great impact, the great concrete sculptures, a favorite material by Milène Guermont who has patented some workmanship: his works keep printed on their surfaces all the stages of their creation, do not forget what they were, bring with them the stratifications of their existence. Again everything is change. Everything is memory. At least until March 19, the end of the show.
