For this series titled “Bêtes de mode” (Fashion Animals) by HELMO, blue portraits and red animal portraits are superimposed then and displayed in the windows of the Lafayette Galleries on Hausmann Boulevard. A system of colored gels colored blue and red on the panes makes it possible to see the portrait mode sometimes, and sometimes the animal portrait.
Michel Blazy created sculptures out of small things from the house, which usually inspire that inattention devoted to everyday objects: mashed carrot, lentil seeds, food colors, dry dog and cat and the list is far from exhaustive. Is a blend of natural and artificial materials which constitute the support of investigations of the artist. The works become metaphors for the fragility, of passing time and the brevity of life. For the College of the Bernardine, Michel Blazy provides an installation that evokes the Final Bouquet possible future of the planet if we do not heed our environmental decay and consumption are at the heart of its concerns.
