Exhibition Paper workshop of Côme Perché at the Horta Museum in Brussels – from 16 May to 1 June 2014

The Horta Museum chose to invite, for Artists Tour, Côme Perché who gives a poetic interpretation of the nature using paper-folding. He makes use of all qualities of the paper’s fibre to create a world superbly stylized and intensely alive that human, animals or plants figures occupy. The creations of Côme Perché find themselves next to plaster models of plants of the XIXth century, shells or stuffed insects. The whole installation aims to awaken children’s fantasy, as well as reaching adults by its singular beauties.

Exhibition in the framework of Artists Tour Saint-Gilles & Forest under the patronage of M. Charles Picqué President of the asbl (association) Musée Horta and Burgomaster of Saint-Gilles
