MANGE D’HALEINE is a solo exhibition by Céline Mathieu. The title plays on a misunderstood wordplay, the meaning of which came across nevertheless.

The show opens on the 25th of February and runs until the 5th of March. There might be a performance at the opening; and potato starch.

In various media, Céline Mathieu mingles linguistic and bodily sensibilities with an element of play. Often executed in temporary solid materials (from performance to plasticine sculptures and printed matter), she is interested in what can not quite be pinpointed. Fluid modes of production (hypnosis), appropriations from what could be categorised as “light medicine”, the work is at once conceptual and sensory. Changing states of being and a feeling of ‘falling away’ wire through all the pieces. The context in which the work is shown strongly directs her practice, which is emphasised by the way elements of display and textual components of the exhibition are incorporated as cohesive parts of the work.

Céline is half of CMMC, a performance duo with Myrthe Christianne van der Mark.
