The artists of the exhibition Insects

To celebrate the launch of the third issue of Cercle Magazine on the theme of insects, the team of Cercle and Jeff Mugnier, head of the Syndicat Potentiel in Strasbourg, envisaged an exhibition bringing together 8 artists of various practices and visions on the theme of ‘insect. From April 29, 2015 to May 15, 2015, the work of Solène Bouffard, Sonia Poirot, Myriam Colin, Frédéric Pagace, Christophe Urbain, Max Blotas and Patrick Bailly-Maître Grand and Till Charlier is visible at the Syndicat Potentiel in Strasbourg.

The eight works all have a plastic or semantic link with the theme of insects, the insect becomes a pretext for research, an art material or a symbol of the message.
