Before the eye lid's laid - Les Précipités #5

To mark the AICA France prize 2016, which was awarded to J. Emil Sennewald for his presentation of Agnès Geoffray's work, the CPIF presents the artist's first major monographic exhibition in a French art center.
Before the Eye Lid's Laid presents a constellation of images and texts. In contrast with the usual relationship between the art critic and the artist, these texts talk to the images rather than talking about them. Texts and images come face-to-face causing their respective levels of meaning to oscillate. The exhibition design is an invitation to experience this oscillation between seeing, imagining and thinking.
