Cosey Fanni Tutti (b. 1951 in Kinston-up on-Hull, England) is well known as a member of the English group Throbbing Gristle, which had a significant impact on the late 1970s’ experimental music scene. Besides her musical activities, Cosey developed a unique body of work defined by her actions within the pornographic industry. The collective exhibition A Study in Scarlet takes her work as its point of departure to present a series of forms, gestures and attitudes through which other artists and performers exceed normative structures of identity and gender.

Le Paradoxe de l’iceberg  (The Paradox of the Iceberg) exhibition at the Château de Rentilly brings together works from the Frac Grand Large – Hauts-de-France collection that use raw materials subjected to chemical or physical modifications. These materials are chosen for their aesthetic properties, as well as their energy or symbolic charge. Signs and traces are combined in the exhibition, those stemming from searching for a visual language in pursuit of its own physical and metaphysical limits. The artists share their doubts about what is and what could happen. From chemistry of the elements to cosmic representations, many works from the Frac Grand Large collection blend literary and poetic endeavours to find another side, to delve beneath the surface and capture the elusive.
Matter is never what it seems.
