Ataraxie, Maxime Houot

Ataraxie means ‘peace of mind’, and in this new installation from Maxime Houot the artist asks us to question what this might mean in a changed and still changing post-pandemic world. A row of lasers fills the space with beams of red light that first form simple crosses, before building up complex, tesseract-like structures. Ataraxie investigates the void of the unknown and asks us whether we might fill it with the comforting and familiar, or find fresh ways to live.
