Morgane Griffoul

Morgane Griffoul is a French artist based in Brussels. Her work is filled with bewitching spirits and strange, supernatural creatures. She’s attached herself to monsters. Hers are hybrid, mutant, evolutionary. They belong to a long-forgotten nature. She makes them reappear in banal myths: intimate, everyday scenes in the heart of our homes, gardens and architecture. The monster is the home. The one that’s frozen, that will never move. Perhaps it’s this frozen temporality that, more than the presence of monsters, lends an unreal, magical aspect to her illustrations. She takes us into spaces outside realistic time, where everything is slower, less productive. The beings who populate these spaces have no other desire than to embody them, to melt into them and inhabit them.

The bodies she shows us do not exist without the places in which they appear, and vice versa. Feet, hands, trunks or whole bodies are the pieces that construct the spaces in her illustrations. They are walls, floors and surfaces. Through a system of fusion, bodies and architecture create an impression of strangeness that resonates with what we seek to hide, what is buried.

She holds up a mirror that reflects an image we don’t want to recognize ourselves in: a curse we all share, revealing our own monstrosities. Her still, silent images tell a story that doesn’t necessarily have a resolution. They are stories of relationships: between two creatures, with ourselves and with our temporalities. The image is a field of action, a transitory entity allowing for transformation or metamorphosis.
