The show

Fondazione ICA Milano presents, from Friday 29 September to Saturday 25 November 2023, the exhibition Jus d'Orange, featuring the artist Camille Henrot (France, 1978) and the writer and art critic Estelle Hoy (Australia, 1983) . With Jus d'Orange, words and images recur the themes of melancholy, failure, injustice and hope within a single exhibition display, conceived specifically for the spaces of the ICA Milan Foundation in the form of a kaleidoscopic installation, where languages different ones act in a concerted way, amplifying each other. In a continuous back and forth, the text and images inspire each other, uninterruptedly, contaminated by the numerous interferences of life.

The exhibition project is created by the artists in collaboration with the ICA Milan Foundation and is curated by Chiara Nuzzi. The exhibition shows a path of mutual and constant contamination that emerges in the dialogue between the images of Camille Henrot and the texts of Estelle Hoy, amalgamated in the common thread of a dense conversation between the artists.

Jus d'Orange presents a selection of new paintings by Henrot inspired by Hoy's texts and vice versa, the result of over five hundred images and thousands of messages that the artists, united by a deep bond of friendship, exchanged via WhatsApp, Instagram, Google Docs, voicemails and live conversations starting late 2021.

The collaboration between the artist and the writer starts from Estelle Hoy's story Acque Veneziane di Jus d'Orange, which sees the protagonist, a friend of the author, witness the collapse of the roof of her home after having performed numerous sacrifices to purchase it. The themes of failure and hope, represented by the cultivation of an orange grove on the remains of the destroyed house, inspire Henrot in the creation of a series of watercolors and paintings on canvas including A Thrill or a Spill (2022); Cool Nights (2022); A Mountain of Oranges (2023); Fruitful Labor (2023) and constitute the point of origin of an uninterrupted dialogue between the two artists which includes from books read to experiences lived, from exhibitions visited to psychoanalytic theories, from emerging social issues to dreams and personal aspirations.
