MIMA museum in Brussels is showcasing the first European institutional exhibition by rising French artist, Jean Jullien. Globally recognized for his whimsical everyday doodles, the solo show will present a survey on the artist’s more recent works — from sketches and watercolor portraits to paintings, sculptures and installations.

The title of the exhibition, STUDIOLO, makes reference to the idea once set forth by 14th century Italian poet Petrarch, in which people should have a place within their homes where they could converse with God and the muses. Similar to the German ‘Wunderkammer’ — or cabinet of curiosities, the term ‘studiolo’ arose in the following century as a room of introspection, decorated to reflect the values and interests of the owner.

For Jullien, however, the concept of the ‘studiolo’ was used as a way for him to search for happiness in intimate memories. From breezy moments on France’s West Coast to lush greenery of the countryside. Each of the figures are purposefully left anonymous to serve as a window for the viewer to imbue their own memories into the work. Jullien has also left commentary as guideposts that provide insight into the artist’s thoughts and processes.

STUDIOLO will be on view at MIMA in Brussels until December 31.

For more on art, we spoke to Landon Metz about the spirit behind his lyrical compositions.
