Let’s Fight Till Six and Then Have Dinner by Michele Guieu


This installation of drawings and videos is about childhood and its fleeting moments. Everything passes, hence the title, which also refers to the fact that the show opens just a few days before presidential election day. It puts the urge to argue and the hunger for peace in (a childish) perspective.
The drawings hung on the backdrop of the giant leaf are made from pages of ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’. I see the world Alice visits – and creates at the same time – as a response to the complicated world we live in. In the series of short videos, I watch my two boys as they grow: the way they see the world, the creatures and the monsters they imagine.
