Lang & Baumann

Paris ·

12.04.19 → 09.06.19

From April 12 to June 9, 2019, Galeries Lafayette invite Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann, the duo of Swiss artists to present an original installation in Galerie des Galeries, located on the 1st floor of the department store.
The in-situ intervention Beautiful Tube #6 underlines the angular architecture of the space as it proposes a brand new experience of wandering to its visitors. Acting as a mise en abyme of Galerie des Galeries, this tube-like structure lengthens the tunnel situated at the entrance of the exhibition space. Seen from the outside, this plain and imposing micro-architecture renews the perception one has of the place. From the inside, the visitors are confronted with an artwork which unsettles our landmarks as it turns into a site for exploration and contemplation.The elliptical and geometric patterns which alternate throughout the tunnel are inspired from the cupola of the department store, while their vivid colors contrast with the sobriety of its external aspect.
