With Mutation, Michaël Cailloux eludes to a fusion between animal and nature. Here, the glorified spider, far from the fears it can evoke, transforms itself into precious and natural lace, an anthem to beauty. Key to the Art Nouveau movement, here the theme of metamorphosis is the beginning of the artist’s more personal and dream-like exploration.

Imagine you are attending a 19th century reception in a castle; picture yourself in a warm room drinking tea by the fireside. Here, in Michael Cailloux’s mythical world, animals gather and mix as equals; the conversation is witty and amusing. This silk square is an invitation to join that intimate setting where the only rules are conviviality, sharing and eloquence.
Where are we, before “being”? What wonderful beings are looking upon our bodies to give it life? Who are this serpent, praying mantis, and the fly in relation to the creation of woman? Explorer of his own dreams, Michaël Cailloux is looking to understand thoughts on his own creation and passes them on to the imagination of the audience. Aquatint etching

In love with still life, Michaël Cailloux performs an autumnal symphony in which two calm fishes slide in a whirl of golden foliage. Homage to the great masters of classical painting, this wall jewellery takes on its full dimension in the abundance of details. Fins delicately chiselled, a myriad of scales. As for leaves, limbs, veins, stalks, they all seem to have been petrified and are calling memories of life, which were once in them.
