The exhibition “Mapping Dreams” is an introduction to the works of comic artist Marc-Antoine Mathieu. For the last thirty years, Mathieu has been exploring the boundaries of perception between reality and imagination. His works are stories that open up new perspectives through the deliberate breaking of conventions of the discipline, illustrating the mysteries of things in stark black-and-white graphic narratives.




Marc-Antoine Mathieu was born in Antony near Angers in France in 1959 where he still lives today. In 1984, he sets up the studio Lucie Lom together with Philippe Leduc and collaborates on various comic productions. 1990 saw the publication of the first part of his series about the staff of the Ministry of Humour. The first volume, “L'Origin”, won international recognition and several awards. The stories create a maze out of different forms of perceptional facets. In order to make this experience visible in an exhibition space, the visitor is guided through expansive installations and adaptations of motifs of passageways and transitions. More than 50 original drawings provide a cross-section of Mathieu’s work of the past 30 years. Unpublished sequences from his current production are also shown.
