GALERIE CHLOE SALGADO is pleased to invite you to the new edition of Bienvenue, an independant art fair set in the heart of Saint-Germain des Prés at the iconic Hôtel La Louisiane.
For its second participation in Bienvenue, the gallery will welcome you ROOM N° 10 and present the work of LULÙ NUTI, as well as that of the duo XOLO CUINTLE, in a timeless proposal, poetically mixing concrete, metal and plants.
LULÙ NUTI (1988) lives and works in Rome. She creates sculptures, drawings and installations, that dialogue with space and question our relationship to nature and the environment. Mixing different building materials, such as plaster and concrete, with natural elements, Lulù Nuti's work is characterized by the coexistence of a subtle duality between presence and erasure, rupture and solidity, resistance and fragility.
XOLO CUINTLE is a duo formed by Romy Texier (1995) and Valentin Vie Binet (1996), who live and work in Paris. Together, they produce works that challenge the boundaries between sculpture, furniture and scenery. Assembling concrete, metal and wood, they create deserted, petrified scenes, between dream and simulacrum, of which one can neither distinguish the past nor the future history. Xolo Cuintle’s creations, meticulously assembled and arranged according to each space, play with the objects that constitute the topographies of our daily lives, plunging them into a state of permanent latency.
