(Group Exhibition: 19 October – 2nd December 2016)
For its upcoming exhibition, Miaja Gallery continues in its endeavour to coalesce artists from the regions which are both influential in, and symbolic to, the gallery’s foundation.

Hailing from both France and Asia Pacific, a group of four artists explore the beauty and energy of kinetic art, known for harnessing and mastering movement for its effect. Noted for their harmonious poise and flow, the exhibiting works offer the viewer an entranced glimpse into the world of each artist that is both intricate and hypnotic.

From delicate hanging mobiles, fabricated from precious woods and metals, to rotating totems that connect story-telling imagery when aligned, EQUILIBRIUM showcases a collection of works which come together as the apotheosis of balance in motion.

Christel Sadde is an independent Parisian artist who creates mobile sculptures and moving art objects called Volabiles – a combination of “mobile” and “volatile”. Her work resembles kinetic art, likened to the works of the great Alexander Calder but inspired by different shapes and forms. Her mobiles are not only suspended objects but also meticulous and complex exercises in balance. They come to life in the light and the wind, becoming living things which are fed by the air.

With a degree from Berlin School of Contemporary Art. Thomas Maurer is a German-Born Australian artist who works with two-dimensional sheets of flat aluminum to create three-dimensional optical illusions. He creates these illusions using nothing but the material itself and an angle grinder, producing a strong effect of motion, seductively enhanced by lighting. Thomas’s art is inspired by life’s constant changes, light and movement. Using recurring spirals of varying scales that play through and with interlocking forms, he seeks to evoke the essentials of nature.

Penélopé’s latest mobile works, are the culmination of her collaboration with Singapore based interior designer Isabelle Miaja. In this series, Penélopé’s illustrative style marries itself to precious woods and metals, creating an ethereal work of art portraying painted eyes that seemingly blink at the viewer as they turn through the air.
When she is not busy drawing or creating, she likes hunting antiques in flea markets, or walking in the streets of Venise that she knows like the back of her hand, until she begins to draw and create again.

After years of training and practice within the arts and interior design industry, French artist Auréline Dupuy created double-edged design / art studio Xylobee in 2009, as a way to dedicate herself thoroughly to her one and only love: Wood.
Among the first creations to come out of the studio’s atelier were Xylodolls, hand-turned wooden anthropomorphic toy-like sculptures. Occupying a space between art and design, Auréline’s collaboration with renowned Singapore-based interior designer Isabelle Miaja spawned Rototems, (‘Rotating Totems’). These wooden pillar-like geometric man-high sculptures, made of five stacked rotating cubes, have been custom made for both residential and hospitality projects including three Rototems which stand in the Sofitel Mumbai B.K.C. Hotel lobby.
