kamel mennour is pleased to present a group show bringing together four artists around the notion of seriality. From Neïl Beloufa's dazzling bas-reliefs to Latifa Echakhch's randomly-made inks; from Liam Everett's vibrantly coloured paintings to Christodoulos Panayiotou's monochromes: how do all these works fit together while maintaining their autonomous existence? Do they embody an evolving creative process, or are they various versions of the same motif? Should we rather speak of repetition or global serial logic? Is there continuity or rupture?

In his series of bas-reliefs, Neïl Beloufa reproduces the geometric motif of beach towels along with an electric plug. In these recurring scenes from seaside life, our post-industrial society has left a trail of dirty marks all over. Liam Everett produces his paintings by similar repetitive gestures on same-sized canvases, and the result is always unique. In the manner of the Rorschach test, Latifa Echakhch applies dark ink on wet canvases to create similar yet one-of-a-kind plant forms. In Christodoulos Panayiotou's work, layers of painting on metal create the illusion of rust, experimenting the passage of time.

Born in 1985 in Paris, Neïl Beloufa lives and works in Paris.
Born in 1974 in El Khnansa (Morocco), Latifa Echakhch lives and works in Fully (Switzerland).
Born in 1973 in Rochester, New York, Liam Everett lives and works in Northern California (United States).
Born in 1978 in Limassol (Cyprus), Christodoulos Panayiotou lives and works between Limassol and Paris.
