SETH – Walking on a dream @ Itinerrance Gallery

The solo show “Walking on a Dream” by French artist Julien Malland, known as SETH, is open at Itinerrance Gallery until April 25th, 2015 (Wed-Sat, 2pm – 7pm). The exhibition is an extraordinary visual journey into the universe of SETH, where mysterious children characters welcome the viewers to escape their present and leave behind the chaos of society in order to experience once again the innocence, purity and simplicity of life through the metaphor of childhood.

Turned around, with their eyes closed or hidden in embrace, meditative or nostalgic, these characters create a sense of both inner peace and struggle, and sometimes seem intangible, dreaming far away, in unknown realms of parallel realities, where we also notice elements from the graffiti movement.
