Beth CARTER (UK) - "Shadow Stories" - Sculptures
Rue Blanche 15, B-1050 Brussels

For her first solo exhibition in Belgium, Beth Carter (UK) makes us wander through one of her preferred themes: the night. She explores a world of shadows in which wander bizarre and hybrid creatures. This haunted universe powerfully evokes the products of our subconscious, born in this small corner of our minds where dreams and nightmares come to life.
Beth Carter roots her inspiration in the enchanted and sometimes disrespectful world of childhood. Another powerful source would be classic mythology, rewritten to invent new hybrid and anthropomorphic creatures. Each sculpture raises numerous questions and its meaning can be reinterpreted endlessly in function of one’s mood, background or the eye of the beholder. To bring back sense, we reach far within our own history, our personal references, fears or desires. Oddly enough, it is through animal features that Beth Carter confronts us head on to humanity.

Pour sa première exposition en Belgique, Beth Carter (UK) nous fait voyager à travers son thème de prédilection: la nuit. Elle invoque le monde des ombres, dans lequel évoluent d'étranges chimères mi-homme mi-animal. Cet univers hanté de créatures évoque les fruits de notre subsconscient, nés dans ce recoin de notre esprit où prennent vie nos rêves et nos cauchemars.
Beth Carter tire ses racines du monde enchanté et irrévérencieux de l'enfance. Autre source d'inspiration, la mythologie classique est réécrite pour voir apparaitre de nouveaux êtres hybrides et anthropomorphes. Chaque sculpture soulève de nombreuses interrogations et pourrait être réintreprétée sans fin en fonction de notre propre histoire, de nos références personnelles, nos désirs et peurs inavoués.Au travers de visages d'animaux, Beth Carter nous fait voir l'humanité en face.
