Michaël Cailloux’s lucky animal, the fly of these golden droplets is a symbol of life, where the swarm becomes the breasts and the buzzing, the origin of fertile creation. The golden reflections are countless and the myriad of sparkles seem to be birthing the essence of the world to offer to the audience the sweet hypnosis of a glistening ocean.

The plants, beasts, fish and insects that populate our countryside have always been an immediate source of inspiration for Michaël Cailloux, and still-life is his favourite theme. Hence his signature, the fly, bringing life where there was none... Drawing on various influences, «Cameo» references the era of Pharaohs and Egypt at its grandest, by putting the first engravings of beetles in jewel form. The beetle was a symbol of rebirth for the dead, and a protective talisman for the living.

Michaël Cailloux explores the theme of ex-voto, the inside of the body, especially the organs that resemble plants and flowers. Here, the kidney becomes a lace-like delicate flower. Origin of origins, he brings us in his heart of hearts, where ideas are born, all the possibilities, dreams and breaths of what is to become. The subconscious shapes itself, sculpture as automatic writing and an artist whose art is a soft invitation to dream-like explorations.

This piece, with the Eiffel Tower illuminated by floral fireworks and intimately adorned with two snails, is a love letter from Michaël Cailloux to Paris. The artist reminds us how even though the city has been hurt multiple times these past few years, it remains as majestic as ever. This piece is like a snapshot, a joyful postcard to refute and counter the tragic image imposed on the City of Lights. “We are Paris, we are together, we are happy” seem to be exclaimed by these two sensual gastropods. The animal with no animosity appears to be peaceful, soft and a bringer of hope before a cold and hopeless world. The grim and morbid can’t stay any longer; life and only life remains.
