Idées Multiples – An exhibition conceived around eight- limited edition works

Paris ·

10.06.15 → 12.09.15

Six personalities from the art world builds an exhibiton around the eight limited edition works.
Visitors will find themselves immersed in a scenography whose starting point is the art work itself. Around each multiple, contributors construct a composition of fashion items and assorted objects, reminiscent of the Surrealists’ “exquisite corpses”. Everything is up for sale.
For this collegial project, art books and multiples editors Mélanie Scarciglia and Christophe Boutin have selected eight multiples. Based on these works, stylist Victoire Simonney will interpret the world of each artist through a choice of outfits and accessories from thirty different brands. Lifestyle specialist and objects spotter Jean-Bapstiste Charpenay-Limon will provide a range of eclectic objects and create an intimate space. These combinations will laid out by architect Pauline Marchetti in a way that maintains the specificity of an art gallery but infuses it with the kind of warm atmosphere one expects in a shop. Each item is uniquely connected to the multiple, which radiates its light on surrounding objects.
The contributors will respond to the work of eight different French and international artists: John Armleder, Pierre Bismuth, Elvire Bonduelle, Daniel Gordon, Jonathan Monk, Rafaël Rozendaal, Josh Smith and Pier Stockholm.
