Domestic objects have occupied an unsuspected part of the daily life of many people over the past year. Faced with a need to envision the future, Philippe Caron Lefebvre locked himself in the studio and turned fiction into refuge by creating a speculative domestic ecosystem.

With this body of work, the artist continues his reflections on various biological mechanisms such as mimicry and morphological evolution. In his practice, these processes take the form of material experimentations entailing a juxtaposition of noble and trivial materials, manufactured and recycled devices, as well as natural and artificial effects. To do this, Caron Lefebvre uses both artisanal and technological strategies and combines ornamental and utilitarian modes. The sculptures, ceramics, drawings and collages on display are as much the protagonists of (science-)fiction as is this installation. A heterogeneous universe embodying the freedom of an alternative future (a present). Thus, the recurring motifs within Philippe Caron Lefebvre’s practice, such as the sharp point, the orifice, and the grid, form a lexicon of formal and narrative strategies through which it is possible to apprehend the reel.
