“La Nuit étoilée ou la nuit sans étoiles” at Rustaveli 37 location.
« The Starry Night », bears its title in homage to Van Gogh's painting.
The painting depicts what Van Gogh could see and extrapolates from the room he occupied in the asylum of the monastery of Saint-Paul-de-Mausole. Here, the painting, which could also have carried the title "Peeping Tom", could be a love scene that one could witness while looking through the lock of a door.
However, the female figure, sort of a Lady Godiva wearing a black velvet Venetian mask, the famous « Moretta », a classic eighteenth-century chivalrous object, shows only a simulacrum of her feelings; And seems to be riding a man who has assumed the appearance of a demon. Perhaps the title of this painting should have been "The night without stars".

Lucile Littot's universe strikes by its freedom, its singularity, its prosperity for exuberance, which is alternatively baroque, rococo, romantic, dreamlike, grotesque, caricature, caustic, joyful, and tragic. It is like a festival open to all plastic excesses, to hybridization of forms and mediums, from painting to ceramics, in installations where nested and sprawling stories are intertwined. Glamorous and trash, Lucile Littot plays with hierarchies and aesthetic categories to draw references from both the field of scholarly and popular culture.
