Michaël Cailloux is devoted and passionate about Art Nouveau and especially René Lalique’s jewellery with his sketches and theatrical combs. The artist viscerally sculpts copper with jewellery craftsmanship and etching techniques. With “Manthis Religiosa”, the praying mantis merges with nature and becomes floral and plant-like. The insect is dressed in bindweeds, a flower often represented in the artist’s work.

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.

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.

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.
