Highlight on Leyla Cabaux

Leyla Cabaux
From 28/10/2022 to 13/11/2022

Leyla Cabaux is a black queer feminist artist whose work is part of her broader activist practice. She started drawing early on and learned to draw from the age of 6 when she was sent to an art academy. She continued her education with her aunt, who was a guide at the Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique and taught her everything she knew. Later, she went on to study graphic design at Le 75, from where she graduated in 2022.

Her studies in graphic design had a significant influence on her current style. Her lines are refined, and she uses a limited number of colours for each design. Later, she realised that she couldn’t separate her art from her activism and started adding political statements to her artworks, which are now a key aspect of her work.

For this exhibition, Leyla takes part in a conversation about marginalised bodies. Taking a step back from body positivity, she wants to represent a plurality of bodies as they are, without falling into the belief that we should all love ourselves. Trying to look at the bodies from the prism of body neutrality, she is interested in the aesthetic potential of all bodies, and this exhibition is an attempt at illustrating that duality.
