CIOU : Necro Kawaï
Painted on antique paper in Indian ink, she plays with macabre characters and dark images that range from the Tim Burtonesque to images from the Net, where everything is contemporary. You cannot fail to be moved. This is the art of Ciou. A French artist, born in 1981, who has exhibited far and wide throughout Europe (Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, Berlin and Rome), and then set off to conquer the United States (Los Angeles and Seattle). She remains as combative as she returns back to Europe.
November in Rome promises to be a feast of images taken from the turn of the century, with their languid tentacles wrapped firmly around the modern. The watch words for this exhibition come from an email Necro Kawai sent to the curator in March. Ciou says that her inspirations come from, « the dark and the cute, black magic, circus magic, cabaret and the wild ladies of burlesque ».
Ciou is originally from Toulouse and despite there being numerous references to this French artists, her imitators are non-existent. Ciou reveals a creepy, yet playful fantasy world that is full of mournful vitality. Necro Kawai: visionary and out of this world.
