M Leuven presents a solo exhibition by Alexis Gautier

As of September 17, M is showing a solo exhibition by the young French artist Alexis Gautier (°1990).

His work, currently also presented at the group exhibition 'The Constant Glitch' in M, is often created in dialogue with other people. The exhibition at M is conceived by the artist as a sequence of multiple chapters and movements. Gautier invites different people, including an museum attendant, an artist, an artisan and a neighbour of M to simultaneously be the protagonists and co-authors of the exhibition's script.

He makes room for a polyphony where a reality can emerge collectively, through collaborations, identity slippages and collisions. Starting from an interest in cultural transactions, he focuses on exchange, coincidence and the thin line between fact and fiction.

Drawing on his interest in processes and models of collaboration, Gautier brings new artworks in an installation tailored to the space at M.
