Lafayette Anticipations – Fonds de dotation Famille Moulin is a partner of the Festival d’Automne. For this year’s edition, Lafayette Anticipations has provided support to Scottish artist Karla Black. On this occasion, the artist is exhibited for the first time in France, in two landmark sites of Parisian heritage: the Archives nationales museum and the Beaux-Arts de Paris.

Karla Black uses materials found in everyday life, such as cotton wool, toilet paper, soap, cellophane or eye shadow, as well as more traditional matter stemming from the fine arts - plaster and acrylic or powdered painting, for instance.

Karla Black: "My work is always abstract, without representation, particularly figurative, as the person who is in the piece must also be the person who is observing it. I want to make natural pieces, as are trees, rivers or hills, for instance. In a sense, my work is connected to the landscape. The scale of the pieces is an important element. The material experience must be upsetting, as can be an uninhabited landscape".
