A beautiful and happy invitation to the love ramblings. Love is a source of life, creativity and hope. In "Fragments d'un discours amoureux", Roland Barthes says of the lover that he "speaks within himself, lovingly, in front of the other", that is to say that he speaks in front of the loved one who does not express himself. In fact, the discourse of love is always extremely solitary. The lover waits, gets anxious, jealous, declares, doubts. It is this paradigm of amorous solitude that Madeleine Filippi wanted to stage at the Ségolène Brossette gallery. We all recognize ourselves here as lovers and this is what the artists in this exhibition wanted to show. Thus, the spectator will be disturbed by the sensory aspect of the works of Odonchimeg Davaadorj or Marielle Degioani which invite to touch. Then, he will discover the series "Hallucinose amoureuse" by Julien Serve who draws the Platonic legend according to which each human being, originally a double, was amputated of his half, condemned to seek his soul mate forever. As for Bertrand Robert, the presence of the verb in his drawings evokes this haunting inner discourse, directly inspired by Roland Barthes. In turn, they create a vision of love, one that is intimate, timeless, but also multiple, ready to touch each and everyone.
