“The beauty of the world is the mouth of a labyrinth. The unwary individual who on entering takes a few steps is soon unable to find the opening. Worn out, with nothing to eat or drink, in the dark, separated from his dear ones, and from everything he loves and is accustomed to, he walks on without knowing anything or hoping anything, incapable even of discovering whether he is really going forward or merely turning round on the same spot. But this affliction is as nothing compared with the danger threatening him. For if he does not lose courage, if he goes on walking, it is absolutely certain that he will finally arrive at the center of the labyrinth. And there God is waiting to eat him. Later he will go out again, but he will be changed, he will have become different, after being eaten and digested by God. Afterward he will stay near the entrance so that he can gently push all those who come near into the opening.” - Simone Weil “The beauty of the world is the mouth of a labyrinth.

NERIKOMI #6 (CRYING LAUGHING EMOJI & FRIENDS) BY MATHILDE JOBIN

Mathilde Jobin is a Montreal based artist whose art practice is centered around nostalgia, daily life, pop-culture, and the internet. Her hand-building technique, along with her organic approach, allows her to create asymmetric and imperfect shapes. The material’s tactility permits the artist to deepen her concepts the moment they are translated into life, transforming with the touch of her hands. Hand-building can take place over a few days, allowing the artist to step back, reflect and see her projects evolve simultaneously as they’re being defined.
