Almine Rech is pleased to announce French artist César Piette’s second solo exhibition with the gallery, in which he applies his trademark style to a perennial subject of philosophy, literature and art: the humble butterfly. Since the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Chinese, butterflies have served as a metaphor, and artists as varied as Katsushika Hokusai, Frida Kahlo, and Damien Hirst have used them to illustrate themes such as the potential for transformation as well as the brevity of life and the flight of the soul.
