The inner dialogue with our roots
This exhibition, curated by MG Paris, follows the previous virtual group exhibition Roots that will be held ‘in presence’ in Paris as soon as the sanitary situation will allow it. With the aim of highlighting the artistic project of Astrid Charlotte Wintgens, her solo exhibition will focus on the artist ‘world in between’, going directly to her basic source of inspiration: the Tree and the Human being.
The artist proposes an inner dialogue in search of her own roots and traces, between the Tree, as the ancient symbol of life, through the skin like fine veins of the human faces, closely connected to our traces and life experiences.

Fragments of the human face
The roots in the female figure
In this beginning of 2021 Monteoliveto Gallery launches a series of new virtual exhibitions to face the problems that the pandemic is giving to the organization of physical exhibitions.
For this program we are associating with the french charity association “2500 voix” that helps in the fight against children cancers.
That is why you can find in the third room, and this for all the cycle of exhibitions, an artwork made by the artist Marion Cadet for the association to support the cause.
This artwork has been created from drawings by children who couldn’t be healed.
