julien salaud‘s show “dreams of a nyctalopic spider” @ palais de tokyo is unfortunately already finished, but definitely not forgotten. the young french artist, interested in the survival of endangered plant and animal species, manufactures his own universe of heavenly creatures, chimeras made of birds and insects, embellished with intriguing ornaments from beads, crystals and embroidery. he mentions jan fabre & thomas grünfeld as his inspirational figures.
