As a prelude to an exhibition devoted to contemporary Mexican illustration, which is still in progress, the Mexican artist Yanieb Fabre will spend two days in the window of the Institut culturel du Mexique on Rue Vieille du Temple.
The gestures and lines that make up her work are hypnotic, ritual and obsessive. They simulate forms of desire, establishing a line of tension between the rational and the irrational, bordering on exhibitionism and dementia. Yanieb conceives of drawing as a form of writing close to that of the codex, a calligraphy of delirium opening a door on the unconscious. His approach aims to push this writing-language to a particular limit, placing it on the border of animality and an almost decadent melancholy.
