With Piercing the Psychic Heart, the Quistrebert brothers’ show in La Fondation Ecureuil is laid out like a crypt in which they weave their phantasmagorical world of pop-rock, romantic painting, gothic imagery, decadence and fantasy literature.

Since 2002, the Nantes-based twosome has been producing a multi-facetted corpus of works combining drawings, bronze sculptures and paintings, aiding and abetting an unusual mythology scattered with references to art history.
