Carré rouge N. 1, 2016, Watercolor on paper,

Composed of watercolors and sculptures, The Whole World Has Gone Joyously Mad is an installation by Nadine Faraj, inspired by female activists who use their nudity as a means to protest. According to the artist, this is a way for these women to draw attention to the cause they are fighting for. However it also makes them more vulnerable to the possible reactions of the public, often already hostile to their presence and their tactics.

Sérénade: la dernière marche du roi qui refuse de mourir,

Serenade tune the frequency of Elvis, born in Tupelo, Mississippi, and disappeared from the world in 1977, if we believe the official version. Is he reincarnated through the has-been suburbs material, industrial parks and shopping malls? On a synthetic grass carpet, borrowed from a mini-golf, an empty oil barrel is attached to a lift rescued from a manufacture. Perforated in the manner of a score for piano, mallets vibrates on the tubes, endlessly repeating a detuned version of Are you lonesome tonight. Serenade is the jukebox of solitudes, fueled by the mystery of Elvis.
