The Flight of the Butterfly or the Myth of Icarus Revisited (2014)
Published by Selma Feriani Gallery / Text by Christine Buci-Glucksmann
Selma Feriani Gallery – in partnership with Maison de l’Image – invites you to the launch of Nicene Kossentini’s The flight of the butterfly or the myth of Icarus revisited on Thursday April 16th, 2015 at Maison de l’Image. The event will be accompanied by a video screening.
The dream of the Butterfly was indeed that of a journey into the art and the immanence of the world, nourished by what Massignon calls ‘the impermanence of visible’ proper to the East. A flight, a crossing, and the fall of a sublimated death: three tempi of vision in the frame of a journey of a beauty as precarious as life. Nicène Kossentini’s airy and Icarian art and her aesthetics of suspense, take us into an endless contemplation.
