The new exhibition at the Valérie Delaunay Gallery presents the works of twenty artists who explore the “Still life” through a variety of media and supports, focusing on a genre that was long disregarded but has now acquired a prominent place in contemporary art.

Among the works on display is Claude Como extensive work (180×170 cm), “Ad Vitam Æternam”, a tapestry/installation made of tufted wool on fabric.

Claude Como graduated in visual arts at the University of Aix-Marseille. She lives and works in Marseille. For more than 30 years, she has been questioning the world through different techniques and materials, from painting to ceramics and installation. Since 2019, her research has been focusing on tufting, typically used to make carpets.

Como gives shape to free-shaped wool works inspired by the plant world by weaving magnified small plants.

Assembled together, these woollen pieces of nature create green walls of varying sizes that occupy the space, becoming immersive installations. Here, the viewer enters and stays in the heart of a sublimated Nature, a surreal augmented, hybrid, proliferating, polymorphous and material reality that can be touched and caressed.
