Lithograph "Start Game Over Soluce" by Mehdi Cibille represents a "soluce".

A soluce is an example of noughts and crosses' grid without any winner.

Start Game Over is a noughts and crosses' game where modules shape a cross or a circle in each Parisian district. This lithograph highlights an absurd noughts and crosses' game, engaged against itself and, in the end - like often in this kind of game - nobody won. Without any winner possible, its impossible solution evokes dysfunction, another key concept of Mehdi Cibille's art.

"The winner creates losers". This is the entire philosophy which structures the artistic approach initiated by Mehdi Cibille: "The idea is not to create a loser but to lean on the other to win against oneself. After all, why playing if you can’t win? "

Le MoDule De ZeeR (LMDLDZR) is a logo black and white which embodies Mehdi Cibille’s artistic touch.

Mehdi Cibille creates dark lines which form a complex matter, a volume which seems to come from another galaxy. His noughts and cross’ are like spaceships lost in the modern space. They can also be understood as a way to create a robotic language or network. Would it be the version 2.0 of L’Hourloupe by Jean Dubuffet (paintings series from 1962 to 1974) ? It might also be a new way of writing or communicating: everyone can feel and have its own interpretation : there are always mysteries behind Mehdi Cibille’s drawings that it’s so interesting to look for and discover.
