A creative artist at the crossroads
Having lived in the Borinage all his life, visual artist Jean-Marie Mahieu has taken the concept of extraction to heart – the slow ascent to the surface, from darkness to light.
In order to create the secret alchemy of his graphic montages and paintings, the artist tirelessly searches memory, photographic materials and new media.
A production by the Museum Cluster of the City of Mons, in collaboration with the Mons 2015 Foundation and with the assistance of the Fabrique de Théâtre, the stage arts department of the Province of Hainaut.
