Elvezia Allar has recently set up a personal
exhibition at the Studio L by Lina Zenere.
Its characteristic is to be a writer

Minimal Art was established by the recovery of objects expired, broken,

Despite the apparent refusal of the old aesthetic,

The proposals would lead to materials, frames created ex

experimental fusion of metals at different temperatures
with oxides and development of polymorphisms, indicate
the need for action taken from the inside to
reach a new meaning. Iconography coincides
with the meaning of the object shown: in "Trinity"
For example, three rounds identical matter, three worlds,

We are reminded of the "mobiles" by Alexander Calder,
or even the "inventions" by Julio Le Parc;
play of wind, graceful, rotating endlessly.

as a toy, in fact those slight light wires are
indestructible, we are faced with an anti-sculpture,
a contrast of bodies. The eye, the food chain:

That's compositions always free with no silhouettes silhouettes,

the stones are eyes attendance. In the "woman skeleton"

The order is random, the position of

In "Maternity interrupted" we have a
true drama: two half rounds held together by deep
sutures in hard iron that highlight the scourge.
Finally, there is a transformed relation to laws
of gravity, the stones fly through the leafy dried
cling plastics, glass eyes become
