Charlotte Le Bon: A Surrealist for the Internet Age

 
The French often mistake surrealist artist René Magritte for one of their fellow countrymen, but, alas — René was Belgian. We thought we had another shot with artist and actress Charlotte Le Bon, whose witty, oddball work, with all its floating food items and blotted-out human heads can't help but remind us of dear René. (Alas, Charlotte is Canadian.) She does live in Paris though. And if you do, too, you can catch her latest show Pickle Melancholia until the end of the week at Paris's Galerie ITEM, 49 Rue de Montparnasse.

If you don't, here are a few highlights from the show, along with a few other of Le Bon's best photos, art, and - this being the Internet Age - Instagrams.
