A MAGIC ARK OF THE COVENANT

 

Fabesko (Fabienne Escolano) was born in 1970 and lives and works in Paris and Belgium. His work has ranged from painting, drawing, textile sculpture and installation. The artist with an international career combines in her work a very critical view of contemporary society and the playful and wonderful universe of fairy tales and children's fables. In the composition he dedicated to Lisbon, the figures, an entire family, appear on a kind of improvised stage amidst the hustle and bustle and indifference of the city that is Lisbon. It is the ideal partner for a tour among the small miracles of everyday life. With shapes of a touching and magical simplicity that plastically corresponds to the joy of smooth and highly contrasted colors. Once again, his characters are like little lost hearts, with smiling eyes and full of wise melancholy in search of another heart that Chaos swallowed, and which persists, like the fragments of a comedy without time. In this poetic scene, the invitation made to us by the artist is: We are willing to accept the challenge of recreating their small paradises, today inhabited by an enchanting fauna of animals that look like they came out of a modern Noah's Ark. An ark of the covenant capable of preserving the purest and perhaps most archaic love and feelings of humanity, love of which is It symbolizes the innocent and childish kiss but also the kind of harmony suggested between all the creatures of all the kingdoms, the most evident message of this group that currently offers us their talent and invention.
