Deadline: 15 Nov 2017

The show will last three weeks, December 18, 2017 – January – 2018. Galerie Métanoïa invites the public to rediscover the world through a kaleidoscope of carefully selected, small format artworks presented in an enticing way.

Artistic approach – The Zodiac:

“Alongside the history of the world unfolds another narrative of the human adventure which is astrology. Man’s endeavor to decipher his destiny from an intuitive perception of natural phenomena has led him to conceive animistic imagery and symbols to reflect the correlation between heaven and earth. This vision of the world, which begins with Sumer and finds a new expression with Aristotle and Ptolemy, has exerted a preponderant influence on mentalities including religious beliefs and polical power. In the continuity of tradition, artists are invited to present their contemporary perception of the celestial sphere and its revolutions.”

Marked by the Far East, but open to all traditions, the gallery endeavors to promote promising young artists, who allow us to see or foresee what precisely is not visible. Gallery Metanoia opened it’s doors in October 2006 with a presentation of New Mandala by Jacques Brosse (1922-2008), prizewinner of the Académie Française award for his lifetime achievement. Since then, the gallery has organized numerous exhibitions both individual and collective.
