MARGUERITE HUMEAU

MARGUERITE HUMEAU

Marguerite Humeau's exhibition *FOXP2* at Palais de Tokyo, Paris, FR has been reviewed in the New York Times.

Author Kat Herrimann says about the exhibition: "Humeau brings this idea to life with a funeral procession of 10 to-scale pachyderms, which occupy a platform in the center of the space. Like her past projects, the sculptures are incredibly stylized, working as both functional and symbolic objects. Each elephant represents an emotion, and Humeau has injected substances into each structure to evoke them — ranging from real elephant tears, to alcohol, to hormones associated with euphoria."
