« Voir peut-il rendre fou ? » (« Can what our eyes see make us go insane? ») is the first retrospective of Aurélie Dubois. It gathers 16 years of creation in Paris. The curator of the exhibition is the writer and historian of art, Paul Ardenne.
The exhibition puts the emphasis on drawing, hence an entire floor is dedicated to it. Photographs and installations complete this journey.

This exhibition is also the opportunity to discover her videos, such as The Corridors, a nominated short at the Festival Côté Court in 2015 and at the Traverse Vidéo in 2016. One will also be able to see her last experimental short Amour écrit en fer.

The resulting encounter between those different works will allow oneself to discover the full scope of Aurélie Dubois' shape-shifting work, her call for resistance and alertness, face with our modern society's misdemeanor and its taboos. 'Stay alert, on the alert!'

Since 1987, Aurélie Dubois has embraced an artistic motion in which she explores drawing, photography, videos and installations. Her work, from the outset, has kept in background the idea of an artistic 'garde'.
This idea of an 'Artiste de garde' (guard artist), established by the psychoanalyst and writer Daniel Androvski in 2008, inhabits her creations, to oppose the idea that a work of art's essence would be to adorn instead of giving meaning to itself or uncovering the nature of things.
