Haute Voltige is a tender and joyful allusion to Art Nouveau jewellery where the bee frees itself from the brooch; where the animal free of men comes back to its natural state and exists for itself. Manifesto for a harmonious union between this world and its inhabitants. The cherry tree blossoms are a very discreet and personal homage to a Japanese friend of the artist.

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.

In Ancient Rome, the atrium was the heart of the house. Often richly decorated with statues of the family and symbols of wealth and ancestry, it served as a well of light and reception. Michael Cailloux has imagined this silk square to embody the refinement and order of the age; a timeless classic.
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.
