This solo show of Leila Sadel takes place following the artist’s residency at Le Cube – independent art room.
“The reading and the journey, the timeframe and the assemblage, the speech and posture give me the feeling that the work of Leila Sadel is an iteration of gestures, gaze, and words. Although they do not collide during their emergence, they slide among each other, and snoop around like some elementary particles that she catches with a butterfly net to transform them into senses and images.
One can easily imagine oneself being both the hunter and the butterfly, both narrative intent sensor and / or adequate element in the pursuit of history that disseminates in front of our eyes. With quiet footsteps, the silence serves as a grid to drama, because it is question of an intimate tenuous relation, one that is sensitive and ready to break.
Leila Sadel sends us back to both our disruptive and prolific presence, all at once. The flight of the butterfly, jerky, stealthy, unpredictable, colorful, authorizes his hunter to subtle acts for a hazardous capture, but one which must be delicate in order to preserve all the nuances.
Leila Sadel suggests a promenade where Tout ce que l’on fait est sur fond de silence (All that We Do is on the Background of Silence).”
