Reality Sucks 3

Exhibited artist: Mathieu Cardin

Curated by : Marx Ruiz-Wilson

“Reality Sucks 3” focuses on the observation of insects, biodiversity, psychedelics, and our perception of nature. The exhibition features clusters of staged scenes, highlighting the striking contrast between plastic, prefabrication, and nature. “Reality Sucks 3” proposes a visual campaign arranged to conceive small fragmented paintings. These paintings are characterized by the accumulation of certain symbolic objects.

Beyond the diversity of the themes addressed, this exhibition will also be a profound reflection on how to present these subjects to the public. The intention is to offer visitors an immersive experience that encourages them to question the complex relationship between man and nature.

“Reality Sucks 3” highlights the fragile and invaluable beauty of nature. Each painting is meticulously designed to evoke emotion and invite contemplation of the richness of our biodiversity and the interconnections that govern our ecosystem.

Thus, this exhibition will not be limited to a mere juxtaposition of elements but will constitute a coherent whole, nourished by deep reflection on the aesthetics and symbolism of the chosen elements. The aspiration is to prompt visitors to a real awareness of the need to preserve our environment while providing them with a captivating and revealing artistic experience.
