Exhibitions > Mon Cirque

This collection focuses on the idea of the circus as a place with extraordinary characters where all kinds of fantastic and unexpected events occur. Hayon describes the work as a type of ‘fool's aesthetics'. It is a representation of a surrealistic world in which objects come to life: vases turn out to be living creatures, and the table, with all its different legs, seems to dance. There is a clown somewhere in the room. 

An important constituent of the objects is the craftsmanship that underpins them. Everything is handmade, without the use of moulds. It is also one of the first series that received commercial translation. Buyers can even choose their own favourite legs, so that every table is different.
