    From 30 March to 21 April 2024, Espace Saint-Ravy is delighted to be hosting the Antihéros exhibition, showcasing the work of Montpellier artist Mara. The well-known silhouette with the absent face spreads across the exhibition space, dissecting the depth and complexity of human nature.

    Since 2011, Mara has been using the silhouette of a single figure whose face is marked by a large black cross. This universal figure embodies all those who will recognise themselves in it. Inspired by comic strips, the artist's cartoonish images subtly address human paradoxes, bringing nuance to the dichotomy.

    "To round off this quest for universality, Mara draws on his imagination and life experience to depict very personal scenes that he knows we all experience. A moment of solitude, a comic situation bordering on the ridiculous, a moment of distraction... everything that characterises us and makes us complex, sometimes paradoxical beings [...] . This anti-hero is a compendium of qualities, but above all of flaws and shortcomings at their most human. You're not a hero all your life'" Laura Mari

    First, Mara adorns the walls of Montpellier with her collages. Her ephemeral works punctuated the city with cynicism. Today, the artist works in other media: paintings, sculptures and videos.
