A blond adolescent, wearing a mask and a blue-and-red costume is currently squatting at Gemmayzeh's ArtLab Gallery. Speedboy, as the figure is known, is the protagonist of French artist Severine Deslions' work. "World (Ex) Change," the exhibition of Deslions' works now up at ArtLab, gathers more than 40 mixed-media canvas works and 35 artist notebooks. The art of Deslions (born 1972) is not only reminiscent of comic strips but also an homage to a better world to come.With Speedboy, Deslions sets out to incarnate each facet of the human condition, apparently enjoying the accelerated pace of life without noticing the toll it's taking on the world."World (Ex) Change" is a call to return to a simpler world, one whose bywords are not "globalization" and "consumerism".
