Magnetism by Charles Petillon

Magnetism is comprised of clusters of lit and unlit spheres, typical of Pétillon’s practice which builds on artistic ethnology: comparing and analysing the characteristics of different peoples and the relationships between them. The artwork creates overall a hypnotic illusion, where the gaze is caught and suspended mid-stare. Compelling diverse audiences in the abstract way, the spheres foster a universal and shared language and experience.
