THE SCALE OF THINGS
Curated by Elene Abashidze
BOON_ROOM is pleased to present The Scale Of Things by Hadrien Jacquelet, an exhibition highlighting the artist's most recent series of work - including paintings (2022-2021) and a collection of drawings originating from his stay in Mexico in 2017.
Hadrien Jacquelet is a French figurative painter. His portraits of friends, controversial figures and himself waver between faithful renditions and idealized creatures. His most recent series depicts synthetic figures with ambiguous genders addressing identity at the turn of our century.
Focusing mainly on a human figure from his milieu to mythological beings, the stars of popular culture and public identities, Jacquelet creates tension between the depicted and the hidden, the figure and its background of poignant colours, exploring themes such as sexuality, violence, gender.
