Laetitia Gendre – Like a Slug Sticks to the Ground

For this new exhibition at Galerie Thomas Fischer, Laetitia Gendre presents colorful works on paper that deal with the relationship between image and language created by search engines such as Google along with a series of graphite drawings entitled Secret Passages and a mural. The drawings and the mural pay metaphorical homage to the transitive and ungraspable in contrast to the ever-increasing collusion between words and things and to the imperative to define and classify. The title Like a Slug Sticks to the Ground, is a simile used by Belgian philosopher Pascal Chabot to describe how relationship between language and things should not operate.

The gallery will be closed for winter break from 22 December 2022 until 12 January 2023.
