Laurent Pernot: We are miserable, but love suddenly, saves us

Paris Exhibition Artist Film
10 Sep 2022

Galerie Marguo is pleased to present We are miserable, but love, suddenly, saves us, an exhibition of new multimedia paintings and text-based sculptures by Laurent Pernot, on view at its Paris space from 10 September to 8 October 2022.

Pernot’s work echoes the Romantic impulse to synthesize the ordinary and sublime through lyricism and metaphor. For nearly two decades, he has been developing a distinctive formal language, nourished by literature, poetry, and mythology that probes questions of eternity, ephemerality, and memorialization across a wide array of media. Particularly important to the artist are the influential roles of fragility and love in such matters.
