With Honet we are in front of a work with strong allegorical connotations. Along the wall we find a collection of figures, more or less familiar, that dance in long along the wall toward their destinies, passing beyond their own demons–death. Through Honet the reference to a macabre medieval dances takes on a sweet and playful tone, perhaps demonstrating how the contemporary mindset is devoid of gravitas in regards to the limit that more than anything else distinguishes our lives. In selecting the characters, the French artist draws from his mind a selection of historic, contemporary and arcane icons or fairy-tale and cartoon characters. The bizarre mix, like a carnival parade, appears on one hand to want to exorcise this presence and the one the other in a way show the spirit of our time, that thanks to its technological component predisposes the world and time in an eternal present, where everything is present simultaneously. We too are called to participate, having to select whether to face and overcome our fears represented by the figure of death placed covering the exit, in order to continue to see the exhibition or choose to remain imprisoned in this carnivalesque limbo.
